    I was just wondering if any of those Old Navy trucks got built. I know the market was flooded with them when they gave them away, and everyone in there mother was trying to sell them. If you dont know what I am talking about, they were the old blue trucks they had on display that they decided to stop using and gave them away to anyone that would get them out of their store.
     
  2. They gave them away? Damn, I would've gladly taken one. I haven't seen any for sale. I'll have to check into that.....Maybe I can get in on one of the green Windstream trucks.

    yeah, it was a few years ago. For a while they were all over craigslist and ebay. Most of them were going for around $1,000. They all seemed pretty sculpted together. Some were worse than others with stuff like grilles being held in with wire.
     
  4. i talked to a guy a couple of monthes ago at a show who said we was building one. i don't remember the details though.

    A guy in town bought three of them. Not much there even the frame was cut up. He striped one for parts. sold the 5 window to a farm stand for as road side display. the other still sits in his yard. From what I saw the hood was tack welded to the fenders. The x member was cut out, plastic rear fenders. Chrome over steel on the grill and bumper no copper, You could see that by looking at the pealing chrome. Better then nothing but not much.

    I wasn't aware that they got rid of them.Back in '95 or so when they were just starting the chain, I sold them one via one of their buyers. Got about 1800.00 for a truck I had 150.00 into - big money for one at the time!

    Someone started one on the Chevy trucks board http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/showthread.php?t=305920 I don't know how far he got with it though. Most of them were/are probably candidates for frame swaps. The one in the store here locally wasn't too bad looking until you got up close and then it would have been a challenge to make a truck out of.

    Whoever got the contract to supply all those trucks had to have made a killing,all just shells ,wired together with anything laying around,one guy at the swapmeet had one with a $3000 sign on it He took it home with him.Another place down here using the same thing for advertizment is CODY"S ROADHOUSE,its a steskhouse but there trucks are alittle more complete.

    The Codys here in Brandon closed up shop but the truck was a rusted hunk of crap. It had holes in the roof and someone hung a plant in a hanger through the holes. That plant got plenty of water when it rained.:D

    Say what!? I had NO freakin clue about that. I was just thinking a few weeks ago about what happened to those trucks.

    im sad now...
     
  15. Old Navy SOLD those trucks, they were not given away. These trucks all had nice, new chrome bumpers and grilles, and a few exterior items to make them nice for the store displays. None had engines or transmissions. Some were pretty decent builders, but a lot of them were doctored up just enough to meet the needs of the corporation. I do know of one in OK that is getting put on a S10 chassis.

    This is very similar to what Bass Pro Shops did with the trucks each have in their stores.

    I got one for free. Came out of the Belle Isle store in Oklahoma City. Sold it to a fellow here in town, parts were used. Had a repopped grille, chrome bumpers, and all new glass and rubber. The rest was ROUGH under the pop riveted patches and bondo. Definitely store props but the new dress up items made them worth getting.

  18. Wow. Everything I'd heard was that they'd sold the trucks. Shit, you can't beat free!

    Yeah, I heard about it a day too late. I called around and every one around me had been picked up a day or two earlier.

    Patrick, I heard about the Belle Isle store truck from my wife who worked for ON at the time. They had changed the front and it wouldn't fit thru the doors. They said if I could get it out without disassebling the doors I could have it. Two buddies, a sawzall and cutoff wheel on a 4" grinder got it out in about an hour. LOL
