Chevrolet sent shock waves through the pickup truck industry after it unveiled the Cameo Carrier. Now, you can make some waves at your next cruise event or monthly car show with this 1955 Cameo Carrier, available from MotoeXotica Classic Cars. This example was built in GM’s Flint, Michigan assembly plant and still retains its correct iconic fiberglass rear fenders and tailgate.

Dressed in Commercial Red with Bombay Ivory accents (the opposite of how the trucks came from the factory), the paint and trim are in very good condition, with some minor blemishes visible along the top of the cargo bed walls. The truck came from the factory with fiberglass rear fenders and the exterior tailgate panel. The glass panels are in excellent condition and the truck’s lights are in similar excellent order. This truck rolls on Uniroyal Tiger Paw radials, size P225/75R15, surrounding red wheels and factory wheel covers. The truck’s body panels are straight and solid and include visors over the Sweep-Sight wraparound windshield and doors. The truck has the Full View Rear Window, which is also wraparound. The cargo bed contains a wood floor in good order. The engine bay is very tidy and the battery appears new. Driver assistance features include power steering and power brakes.

Under the hood is a 350 CID V-8 engine with dual exhausts bolted to a Turbo Hydramatic 350 three-speed automatic transmission.

Opening either door reveals hidden running boards and a red-and-white bench seat that is in excellent shape. The red carpeting is in very good condition, as is the white headliner, red metal instrument panel and two-spoke black steering wheel and red door panels. The mirror glass and shift lever are in good order. Rounding out the interior is a Pioneer AM/FM stereo with CD player and two speakers. Currently the horn and the wipers are inoperable.

The mid-1955 introduction of Chevrolet’s Cameo Carrier pickup truck helped pave the way for the El Camino. Although it was a model variant of Chevrolet’s Task Force light-duty pickup, the Cameo offered an array of car-like features that included passenger-car styling, fiberglass rear fenders, two-tone paint, a relatively luxurious interior, as well as an optional V8 engine, automatic transmission and power assists.

The Chevrolet Task Force was Chevrolet‘s successor to the Advance Design trucks. The Task Force Series ran from late 1955 (second series) through 1959. The 1955 Second Series offered standard options and add-ons such as 12-volt electrical systems, the first V-8 (the 265 cubic inch) and fleet-side six-, seven- and eight-foot length beds.

Competition to this Chevrolet in 1955 included GMC’s Blue Chip Series, Ford’s F-Series and Dodge’s C-Series pickup trucks.

This truck is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 413 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
