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 & 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.
