    I know where a 59 burb with the napco converson is sitting. Does anyone have a rough idea what one of those fixed up would be worth? This one is sun faded with only surface rust

    I used to have a '57 Burb w/Napco. I didn't have the $$$ or the facilities needed to deal with it properly. It had also seen numerous attempts to fix it up including:
    - Chevy nose on GMC truck
    - extensive fiberglass repair
    - '65 283 engine
    - at least four different colors/layers of paint
    - radio hacked into dash
    - previous owner told me it had a 400SB and 8-lug axles when he got it
    - I less than enjoyed how the 1/2-ton Napco front axle became 8-lugged /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Mind you, things aren't quite so damp over in Alberta... and it can't possibly have been monkeyed with as much as mine... definitely check it out!
