The Cameo truck was a new idea introduced in 1955-1958 and offered more luxury and style and changed what a pickup could be. It incorporated newly designed fiberglass outer side bed panels along with chrome and fiberglass bumpers.
Our Current 1957 Cameo was restored to the highest level of attention to detail taken to bare metal and painted a 2015 Ford Platinum White Pearl with Vermillion Red accent panels. The cabin has a custom painted two-tone dash with custom billet instrument cluster and Autometer gauges. It's matched with black carpets, black leather/fabric door panel and seat surfaces under a black leather/cloth headliner with Pearl White / Red accents to finish off the inviting cabin in both style and comfort.
Power is supplied by built 427CI / 525HP Chevrolet ‘crate' motor with a 772cfm Holley Carb, polished steel and braided lines on an Aluminum ported Chevy intake manifold topped with a polished 1949 Cadillac air cleaner assembly. Exhaust is through a custom fabricated and polished Sanderson Header system. Components under the hood are either polished or powder coated exquisitely. An HEI ignition system, Electric Water pump and Chevy Mini-High Torque starter complete the build.
Power transfer is handled by a Tremec five speed manual transmission with a custom 3.5" driveshaft. In the rear is a narrowed Monte Carlo 12 bolt posi-trac rear end with 3:73 Richmond Gears. Steering is through a power rack and pinion steering system with custom linkage. The ride is smoothed by a Ride Tech front air ride and Firestone front air bags. Braking is handled by 12" front/rear 3-piece vented rotors and Wilwood 4-piston front/rear calipers with braided lines and a CPP 7" dual diaphragm brake booster. All riding on 17"polished Foose wheels with 235/35ZR17 front and 255/50ZR17 Rears. Chrome bumpers and stock refurbished chrome grill with Tri-Bar halogens lighting the way with clear turn signals all around. Refurbished rear lights complement refurbished chrome and trim all around. The bed is finished is beautiful Red Oak with chrome trim. Sound deadening is Dyna-mat sound damping insulation with an added ½" pad as well as extensive heat resistant Hush Mat Ultra applied to the under body for a quite reassuring ride.
