A TRUE BARN FIND 1958 CHEVROLET CAMEO!This Cameo was found about 2 years ago in a dusty garage in central Ohio by a close friend of mine. After a bit of negotiations the truck made its way to the House of Thunder Rats n Rods shop in historic Gnaw Bone Indiana (not really historic but just a cool name for a town). This truck was purchased by the previous owner in 1973 (yes the 1973 signed over Ohio title comes with the truck), the truck was his baby and on the road till around 1990 when he started to modify it. Through several years the truck was repainted, new 350 and 700r4 added, new aluminum radiator, newer 10 bolt rear end and a complete hack job on trying to install a a/c unit from a 80's Cutlass (I think). Well since she was so modified and none of the original gear was saved, I decided to do what you see here. Obviously if most or all of the original equipment was available I would have been more inclined to restore it to like new showroom condition. End of the story is that the loving feeling was lost by the previous owner through the years and the Cameo set for many many years till we pulled her out in 2016 then the fun began!
