1957 Chevrolet Cameo
Rarity, beauty, and tons of chrome we're usually looking for these features in a classic car, but this 1957 Chevrolet Cameo gives you all of that and a truck bed! So when it has been the right investments to stay looking unique, you know this is the most amazing classic truck that you can get your hands on today.
These Cameo Carriers were considered the suburban-style pickups in their time. After all, you could make your deliveries during the day like any other truck, but then the highly stylized design meant you could still be proud to keep it in your driveway at night. In fact, these really showcased some of the best features that came from Chevy's cars. After all, the flatside bed and revised tailgate was created by utilizing the fiberglass knowledge from the Corvette line. Plus, the full sweeping trim with integrated two-tone color and the tailfin design make this one as attractive as the '57 Bel Air. The reason why you can pick up on these details so nicely is that there has been a nice investment into this truck over its lifetime. It means the big chrome front end shines like a mirror, the turquoise and white paint has a nice luster, and the real wood bed is bright and distinctive. And on a truck that so nicely represents the best in '50s style, you know only correct bright wheel covers with whitewalls will do. All this investment is well warranted, because Chevrolet only made 2,244 Cameo Carriers in 1957 (they produced nearly three times more Corvettes that year!)
More of Chevy's best is seen in the interior, too. The two-tone cloth and vinyl bench has more in common with the Bel Air than the 3100 truck, and the wraparound rear window provides both function and style. You get all your favorite vintage Chevy truck elements, like the grippy three-spoke steering wheel and fan-style gauge panel. Plus, you might have noticed the subtle upgrade to the radio. Nestled in the standard fitting is an upgraded AM/FM radio with a digital tuner and aux input for digital music players. So you can listen to modern music in this very vintage ride.
Just like the '57 Bel Air, the Cameo could be optioned with the new and powerful 283 cubic-inch small block. So it makes us thrilled to see a year-correct block still under the hood. It looks great with a vintage presentation that includes the bold orange block, matching valve covers, and bright ram's horn exhaust. This one has been treated to good maintenance, so it fires up easily and idles smoothly. The motor inhales deeply through a Rochester four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with the great small block rumble from the dual exhaust. And you have complete control over this V8 thanks to the classic three-on-the-tree column-shifted manual transmission.
Complete with title documentation, owner's manual, and maintenance records, this rare Cameo is the perfect turn-key, head-turning classic. And it can all be yours if you're first to grab it. Call today!!!
