Boasting V-8 power, automatic transmission and deluxe interior, the 1956 Chevrolet Cameo shortened the distance between car and truck. Although not a big seller, it set the stage for other stylish trucks, such as the Ford Styleside, the Dodge Sweptside, and Chevy’s own Fleetside pickup.
GM Stylist Chuck Jordan (later to become Vice-President of Design) had originally envisioned a one-piece cab-bed bodied pickup, but engineers were concerned over the sheet metal distorting due to torsional stress on the frame.
It was decided that a clean look could still be achieved with a conventional cab/bed combination. Fiberglass panels were added to Chevy’s existing steel cargo-box, saving the expense of the tooling process required for steel panels. This also allowed the truck to be brought into production quicker.
