1955 Chevrolet Cameo Pickup for sale! Motorcar Classics is proud to
present this rare and stunning 1955 Chevrolet Cameo Series 3100 ton
pickup.In 1954, Chuck Jordan (who would go on to become vice
president of GM design) presented Chevy executives with a design
for a new luxury truck. It was based on the all-new Task Force
trucks, but with different bumpers, and a smooth-sided bed attached
to the cab. They quickly gave the truck the green light. The
production Cameo (sold as the Cameo Carrier) differed from Jordan's
original design in a few ways. Chevrolet contracted Molded Fiber
Glass of Ohio to build the special Cameo panels out of fiberglass,
right alongside the Corvette. Taillights from the outgoing '54 Bel
Air would cap small tailfins out back. Chrome Bel Air hubcaps,
whitewall tires, contrast-colored B-pillar, and stylish (for a
pickup) fiberglass and chrome bumpers capped things off. Inside,
the Cameo was about as luxurious as a pickup could get. A two-tone
dash and bench seat were radical to see in the cab of a truck in
1955. It was only offered in Bombay Ivory, with the B-pillar and
inner bed painted Commercial Red a nod to the still mostly white
and red Corvette. Although larger engines were optional, our truck
was originally equipped with the base 235.5 cubic inch straight six
and column-mounted three-speed manual. This was, perhaps, the first
pickup designed to sell on style as much as utility, and the
fiberglass quarter panels and other features that truly set them
apart from General Motors more utilitarian pickups. This truck has
been the subject of an older nut amp; bolt restoration to authentic
and correct specifications and it remains in extremely good
condition. The truck is reliable and well-sorted. This is a truck
you can drive or show with pride.
