1955 CHEVROLET CAMEO PICKUP

1955 CHEVROLET CAMEO PICK-UP TRUCK SPECTACULAR RESTORATION! STUNNING COLOR COMBINATION! 1950’s cars meant styling, comfort and handling while trucks meant strictly utility. In 1955, with the development of the first-ever luxury truck named the Chevrolet Cameo, the game changed. Boasting loads of chrome, eye-catching fabric interior patterns and stylish design features, the Cameo would soon reshape the automotive industry forever. The total number of Cameo trucks produced during the short few year run (1955-1958) was approximately 10,000 units, with 5,200 units produced for 1955. The biggest distinction regarding the ’55 Cameo is they were all painted Bombay Ivory (white) with a Commercial Red stripe. Other notable features include: Beautifully sculpted unique flat fiberglass box panels, Deluxe Belair interior, full car-style hubcaps and Ferrari-inspired egg crate grille, just to name a few. A closer look reveals the smooth-sided Cameo carried a conventional steel step-side box hidden inside fiberglass outer skins. The fenders, tailgate, and spare-tire carrier were all formed from fiberglass and attached with concealed fasteners to the exterior of the pickup box. Also unique to the Cameo, the tailgate swings down on cables that retract via small hidden, spring-loaded pulleys. This specific Cameo is equipped with a trusty “Thriftmaster” 235 six cylinder “Stovebolt” engine and is backed up by a 4 speed Hydra-matic automatic transmission. Inside the cockpit, a simple yet elegant cloth interior and color-keyed door panels are true-to-form with Cameo styling. This rust free truck was completely (Frame-off) restored. It has a laser straight body, and is turn-key ready to enjoy. Once you see a Chevrolet Cameo pickup and experience all its nostalgia and stylish flair the desire to have it in your garage will never leave your mind.
