1957 Chevrolet Other Pickups CameoChevrolet excited pickup enthusiasts with it's upscale model known as the Cameo. Only 2,244 were produced in 1957, this truck's model year (of it's total 3 1/2 year total production run). The Cameo has the appearance of a fleetside truck with it's fiberglass panels, thanks in part to the abundance of fiberglass used in the Corvette production. There are Cameo imitations being created now, BUT this truck is the real deal!
Originally available in 11 two-tone colors, this particular truck's original colors of INDIAN TURQUOISE and BOMBAY IVORY are among the most popular and sought after colors. The interior's panoramic view with the wrap around glass gives full unobstructed views while driving. The hood rockets on the front hood, in full and bright chrome, are unique to the 1957 model year.
Pay particular attention to the Cameo's rear car-like features.
Here are some additional features of this beautiful truck...
...in April 2013, the old 350 replicated 283 engine was replaced with a completely disassembled/rebuilt V8, 1957 year-correct 283 Corvette motor. 1,638 miles (current odometer) since new engine rebuild/install. While the 265 motor was the V8 standard, the 283 V8 was available for the first time in 1957 as an upgrade motor on this truck. Lots of power and a great sounding motor to match the beauty of this unique truck. New odometer with engine install.
The motor is supported by a Carter carburetor. It has been converted over to alternator electrical for reliability.
...in April 2013, the manual transmission was removed and replaced with the correct rebuilt 3 speed manual transmission (3 on the tree) with automatic electronic overdrive, which works beautifully. Cruise with elegance in this beautiful truck!
...correct Cameo wheel trim rings with all the proper clips on all four wheels. Chrome is bright.
...the truck has had a repaint at some point in the past. Remember that this is a 61 year old truck...it has a few minor blemishes. The undercarriage is very, very clean.
...correct tube radio works and plays strong.
...all glass is replacement glass, with the exception of the rear glass which appears to be original to the truck and has scratches (but it is the original glass).
...wipers work, lights work, brakes are strong with rebuilt brake master cylinder
...it has a new rebuilt deluxe Chevrolet heater, but will require replacing the existing heater control valve before being functional.
...brand new radiator, new hoses, etc
...GM tool kit included
...new correct yellow pine wood bed from Mar-K
...rear tailgate operates on cable system with correct inside latches. All operates fully and smoothly.
...rear drop down down bumper gate for spare tire storage. Matching spare tire included with tire jack.
...Firestone 6.70-15 tires
...dual Delco horns, loud and strong
The truck came to me from Monterey, California in 2011. Since that time, it has been kept indoors in a controlled environment, when not driving to and back from car shows. It has been maintained and serviced on a regular basis with lots of TLC and love!
