Take a look at thisGORGEOUS !! - EXTREMELY RARE !! - RESTORED !! - 1955 Chevrolet Cameo Carrier 3100 1/2 Ton Pickup !! I say EXTREMELY RARE as they only produced 5,220 Cameo Pickups in 1955 which is the FIRST and they tell me the BEST year of Cameo pickup production !! Chuck Jordan, who later became the Vice President of Design for General Motors, designed the Cameo Pickup inspired by guided missile carriers he saw while stationed at Cape Canaveral.We have been asked to sell this GORGEOUS Cameo Pickup for the current retired Washington State owner who is a friend of ours. He has owned this Cameo pickup for the last 35+ years and as you can tell it was his pride and joy for sure!! He recently suffered a back injury which prevents him from enjoying this beauty so he decided to sell it to someone that can get as much enjoyment out of it as he has in the last 35+ years, LUCKY YOU !! If you have been thinking of restoring a truck, you know what it costs to do arestoration like this not to mention the hundreds of hours involved! Most of the vintage trucks you find restored or not have the old beat up beds because lets face it they were bought to be used as trucks but not this BEAUTY !! Careful to not let this one get away !! It still retains it's -FACTORY ORIGINAL - Chevrolet A-pillar mounted VIN tag and an - ORIGINAL STYLE - 1955 Chevrolet Truck operators manual, both of which are shown in pictures below. This is a NICE - DRY - SOLID - California- Washington State - Western truck since brand new and it shows !! The owner told us that this truck sold new in the Los Angeles, California area. He bought the truck 35+ years ago from a family in Los Angeles and then brought the truck to his home in central California. About ten years ago he moved to Washington state and brought the truck with him to his new home where it still resides today. What a value it is at the reserve price which is set WELL below the restoration costs ! If you can make it to Boise in the next ten days please come look at and drive this Beauty for yourself, you won't be disappointed !!THIS IS A QUALITY TRUCK FOR SURE THAT IS READY TO SHOW OR ENJOY !!

*** PLEASE NOTE - THIS TRUCK IS LOCATED IN SEQUIM, WASHINGTON STATE AND WILL NEED TO BE PICKED UP BY THE BUYER OR THE BUYERS AGENT FROM THAT LOCATION ***

At the heart of this Cameo pickup is a VERY STRONG !! - REBUILT !! - Chevrolet 327 CID V8 motor that is running VERY well indeed.
