The 1955 Chevy Pickups were eagerly received by the American buying public, with sleek more modern styling and plenty of new features, and none are more desirable today than the deluxe Cameo. Its sophisticated Chuck Jordan styling and comfortable ride make it a true American classic, and it certainly paved the way toward the modern, fully equipped work trucks we all use today.

This full custom 1955 Chevrolet Cameo Pickup has a great drivetrain - the classic combination of a nicely built 350 cubic-inch V-8 crate engine with a four-barrel carburetor, all mated to a Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission and a Ford 9" rear end. It looks good, sounds great, and will move you right on down the road. All the driving details are set up beautifully for maximum comfort and ease of driving, starting with power rack and pinion steering, four-wheel Wilwood power disc brakes, and a custom lowered suspension. All new bumpers, grille and brightwork look fantastic, and you can be sure that all of the creature comforts you could ever want are in place, like a Vintage Air air-conditioning system, sweet leather interior, a custom dash with new white face gauges, AM/FM/CD stereo, power windows, modern seat belts, and a tilt column steering wheel. The new wood bed with stainless slats is incredible, and the 18" American Racing wheels and Wilwood power disc brakes handle the workload. The highly detailed undercarriage shows the care and careful use this fine custom truck has received. The paint finish can only be called stunning, and certainly makes this one sweet truck that you just cant look away from. Its a classic California custom style with a proven drivetrain that is in excellent condition throughout. If you ever wanted a Cameo custom to drive and enjoy, this beauty certainly fits the bill.
