ODOMETER
1958 Chevrolet Half-Ton Cameo Carrier Pickup Truck

137 hp, 283 cu. in. eight-cylinder engine, three-speed manual transmission, four wheel leaf spring suspension, and four-wheel drum brakes. Chevrolet called its entire new Task Force generation of mid-1950s light trucks a “modern design for modern hauling.” Forward-slanting windshield pillars on the “panoramic” wraparound windshield combined with a new upper cab structure, hooded headlamps, and shapely wheel openings to form an all-new profile. Introduced in 1955 was the elegant Cameo Carrier that echoed the smooth slab sides and bright trim of Chevy’s cars. Although the 1955 Chevrolet Cameo Carrier was never a strong seller, largely because of its high price, it was of crucial importance, bringing passenger-car styling elements into the truck world for the first time. The Cameo's fiberglass rear fenders widened it to the same width as the front end, producing a flow-through look. Chuck Jordan, former head of GM Design, earned credit for this form. Not unlike Chevy's cars of the day, the Cameo sported a chrome grille, wraparound front bumper, and a third more glass than the previous 3100 Series trucks. The interior also was more car-like and featured a fan-shaped speedometer and needle gauges, with a top finished in textured black to cut down on reflections. Cameo Carrier production ran from 1955 to 1958, the most rare being the 1958, with only 1,405 constructed. A quick view of this example reveals a well-done full restoration and few miles driven since. It has the 283 V-8 engine with a two-barrel carburetor, two-speed manual column shift, and dual exhaust. Proper hoses and clamps show strong attention to detail. The interior looks especially inviting, with fresh color-keyed upholstery, a three-spoke steering wheel, new chrome trim and bezels, electric wipers, jack equipment, and an aftermarket period-style sound system with AM/FM/cassette and ceiling-mounted speaker. Wearing the iconic quad headlamp for 1958, it has very attractive two-tone blue paint with no known imperfections, factory sculpting along the fiberglass bedside, a new, highly polished hardwood bed, and the unique Cameo hidden spare tire carrier compartment behind the rear bumper. The chrome is show quality, and the body-color wheels all wear Goodyear wide whitewalls. It is truly an elegant worker, perhaps too nicely restored for utilitarian duty, but certainly one of the best half-ton pickups we have seen to date.

Because, well, why not...?

The only window that opens on the presidential car is the driver’s window, to pay tolls. It also has no keyholes, and only the Secret Service know how to open the doors.
