1957 Chevrolet 3124 Cameo Carrier Walk Around and Driving Video
Chevrolet's Task Force trucks debuted in March 1955 with newly redesigned styling which closely mimicked their passenger cars. Designed by Ned Jordan, these pickups featured a stylish wraparound windshield, hooded headlights, and an egg-crate grille, while the traditional pontoon-style fenders found on Advance-Design models were eliminated. While a trusty six-cylinder would remain standard, the Task Force half-ton pickup could also be fitted with Chevy's historic overhead-valve V8. Also introduced in the spring of 1955 was the Cameo Carrier, Detroit's first truly stylish pickup. Available only in Bombay Ivory with red cab accents, the ’55 Cameo featured a fiberglass-skinned cargo box that further begged passenger car comparisons. Cameo production continued through 1958, with additional colors appearing in 1956.
This car is part of the Retro Motors Collection, which comprises over 30 cars largely from the 1950s through today, with a focus on American muscle and high-powered European sports cars. View the full collection here.
