The 1957 Chevy® Cameo™ adhered to the Chevrolet® Task Force
design that was introduced in 1955, following the Advance Design trucks. Pickup
trucks were becoming more and more popular to a wider range of buyers, so
Chevy® tried something different with the Cameo™. Rather than a bare-bones
utilitarian work vehicle, the Cameo™ added luxury trim, decorative body
accents, and interior comforts. As a result, pickup trucks started to become a
dual-purpose vehicle that had head-turning styling on America’s highways, as
well as enough grit to get the job done if put to the test. The Chevy® Cameo™
helped mold future generations of pickups into the comfortable, yet capable
vehicles we expect today. Of the 351,739 trucks built by Chevrolet® in 1957,
only about 2,240 were Cameo™ models.
Auto World has perfectly replicated this 1957 Chevy® Cameo™ in 1:18 scale
die-cast metal, bathed in factory-matched Cardinal Red paint. Behind the
newly-styled grille for 1957 dwells the 283ci V8 motor.
