“The Other Woman” – Pat Graham’s 1957 Cameo
Just like the Chevy Nomad brought sporty design to station wagons starting in 1955, Chevrolet’s Cameo delivered similar sporty style to pickups starting the same year. With stylish car-like bed sides, these were the first factory sport trucks that brought a fresh look to workhorse pickups and inspired a long following of imitators.
Pat Graham’s 1957 Cameo pickup takes that high style to a whole new level, thanks in part to the talented team at Limitless Fabrication. The stylish body is now smoothed and tastefully modified with shaved emblems and handles, a one-off grille with a passenger-car-style grille bar, frenched headlights, custom side trim, a sleek bed, and mouth-watering House of Kolor Kandy Apple Red paint by Dave Lopez.
The body looks even better sitting low to the ground courtesy of an owner-built frame with RideTech front and rear suspensions sporting Wilwood disc brakes behind 18- and 20-inch Schott wheels. The frame also supports a potent LS3 topped with a Whipple supercharger and adorned with lots of chrome and polished aluminum.
The inside is equally stylish, with a ’56 passenger car dash, bucket seats, and a console all skillfully stitched in cream-colored leather by Craig Renn, plus details like Dakota Digital gauges and Lokar pedals.
Dubbed “The Other Woman,” this crimson 1957 Cameo lives up to its name by being hot, sultry, and very hard to resist.
