High bid of $37,500 at 2016 Mecum : Monterey. (did not sell)
The American truck was originally a utilitarian workhorse. In 1956, Chevrolet attempted to change all of that with the Cameo, a pickup truck that brought style and an attractive design. GM's all-new Task Force range of trucks was introduced in 1955 and served as a replacement for the venerable Advance Design series that was in production from 1947 through early 1955. The new styling featured a car-like grille and a wrap-around windshield. They were larger and more powerful, and they were also stronger and heavier duty in nature.

The 'Thiftmaster' inline-six cylinder engine was supplanted with the 265 cubic-inch V8, a first for General Motors pickups. The Task Force trucks was available with 6-, 7-, or 8-foot beds, power steering, power brakes, and 12-volt electrical system. The interiors were larger and more accommodating, fitted with many accoutrements to make using a truck more enjoyable.

The Cameo was considered the first pickup truck with car-like amenities and marketed toward the suburban buyer. The wraparound front window, described by Chevrolet as the Sweep Sight Windshield, was an industry first.

This particular Chevy 3100 Pickup has been given a body-off restoration. It is finished in two-tone light green and dark green pint. Power is from a 235 cubic-inch 6-cylinder Thriftmaster engine and it rides on new correct BF Goodrich tires. It has a rare big back window cab, new tinted and shaded glass, side mount spare tires, and oak box floor and bed rails.
