    I was thinking on buying a 1967 Chevy pickup 20 series. The thing that has me wondering is that it's a 4wheel drive truck. I thought they started producing 4x4's in 69? From the look of the grille it appears to be a pre 69 truck. Any info?

    Probably a conversion, like a NAPCO. Chevy had 4x4 trucks then, I believe they just didn't leave the factory that way. They had to converted.

    chevy made their own 4x4 trucks from the factory since 1960.

    before then they were napco trucks, some factory and some aftermarket.

    your truck (if a 4 speed) has an SM420, divorced Rockwell t221 transfer case, closed knuckle drum brake D44 front, and a GM corporate dropout axle (commonly referred to as an "eaton").

    so, yes, your truck is a factory 4x4. they have relatively low production numbers, and are rarer. i'd go for it if its a decent price.
