Administrators Moses Ludel Posted March 31, 2013 Administrators Share Posted March 31, 2013 Advance Design and Task Master series G.M. trucks did not offer 4WD—but NAPCO conversions did! The NAPCO 4x4s were rugged work trucks, popular throughout the 1950s. G.M. created its own 4x4 light truck models from 1960-up, and some of the best K-models were the 1960-86 pickups, Suburban, Jimmy and Blazer through 1991, each boasting a beam front axle. Our family owned four of these G.M. models: a 1970 K10 SWB 4WD, a 1973 K-10 SWB 4x4, a 1986 K2500 Chevrolet Suburban and a 1987 K2500 GMC Suburban. Each one of these trucks delivered exceptional performance and a very long service life, the haulmark of the beam front and rear axle K-models! My Chevrolet & GMC Light Truck Owner's Bible (Bentley Publishers) was a tribute to models like these...In the late 1960s, I maintained and refurbished a fleet of G.M. Advance Design, Task Master and 'sixties era trucks. As a classic G.M.C. "Jimmy" six and Chevrolet "Stovebolt" buff, Chevrolet as well as Pontiac V-8 engine enthusiast and K-model supporter, I encourage restorers, owners and others to share your exceptional trucks, their technology and ownership experiences—right here at the vintage G.M. truck forum!—Moses Ludel Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
