1956 Chevrolet Cameo Pickup truck. Complete body-off frame nut and bolt restoration completed in April 2013. Less then 100 miles since completion.  In 1955, came the development of the first-ever luxury truck the Chevrolet Cameo.  By ’56 production was steady as people took to the luxury truck featuring  loads of chrome, eye-catching interior fabric patterns and stylish design features; little did anyone know the Cameo would soon reshape the truck industry to what it is today. The total number of Cameo trucks produced during the short few year run (1955-1958) was approximately 10,000 units (over half built the first year). Cameos are iconic for their gorgeous sculpted unique flat fiberglass box panels, deluxe Bel air interior, full car-style hubcaps and Ferrari-inspired egg crate grille.  A closer look reveals the smooth-sided Cameo carried a conventional steel step-side box hidden inside fiberglass outer skins. The fenders, tailgate, and spare-tire carrier were all formed from fiberglass and attached with concealed fasteners to the exterior of the pickup box. Also unique to the Cameo, the tailgate swings down on cables that retract via small hidden, spring-loaded pulleys. This specific Cameo available right now for sale at Happy Days Dream Cars in Warrensburg, Missouri is equipped with a reliable 265 CID V-8 engine and is backed up by a 3 speed manual transmission. Inside the cockpit, the simple yet elegant cloth interior and color-keyed door panels are true to form to Cameo styling.  This truck is completely restored (Frame-off), the rust free body is laser straight, and truck is turn-key ready to enjoy. Once you see a Chevrolet Cameo truck and all its nostalgic and stylish flair you will be sold!
