Built for Leo Espinoza, this 55 Chevy Cameo is a real beauty. This was a complete frame-off restoration. The running gear consists of a rebuilt Chevy 350, a Turbo 400 trans and 12-bolt GM rear end.The wheels used are from Wheel Vintiques.The original tailgate was too damaged to be economically repaired so we ordered a new one from Golden State Pickup Parts. Other replacements for missing parts came from Brother's.The original steering column was replaced with a 32" steel ididt. The custom billet Gauge set came from Brother's and really looks nice set into the two-tone dash. Upgrades include a Vintage Air Surfit AC kit, LectraGlide II power windows with Hotronics switches and a Custom Auto Sound stereo system.

Lokar pedals and a 16" Gennie Ultra Shifter complete the interior. Dynamat insulation keeps the cab cool and road-noise free. Nothing beats the look of bed finished in wood and chrome. The power package started with an Edelbrock aspirated Chevy 350 with Enos headers and Zoops wire loom. Old wiring was replaced with a 12-circuit Painless Wiring kit. Radiator, fan and shroud are from Walker Radiator. The firewall had to be replaced so we went with a fiberglass one from No Limit. The transmission is a Turbo 400 which send power to the rear wheels through a stock GM 12-bolt rear end. The gas tank is from no limit. Exhaust work was done by Wholesale Tube Bending.
