This could be the worst kit i have ever made...The only reason i could finished this kit; is my respect to the actual car...

My inspiration was, the popular 57 chevy...

I will probably paint the windshields white, and put a license plate to the back..

Here is the box...

Kekefe - Super nice truck ! Very clean !

The lack of Cameo trim reminds me of the Cameo's lesser-known cousin :the GMC Carryall (no trim on the bed ; typical GMC "Bull Nose" fascia ; and Pontiac engines ).

I think it looks great, why don't you like it? I like the satin red finish with the white and the lowered stance. When you say you are going to paint the windshields white, I think you mean what we call headlights in the USA. Be proud of this model it looks great and I would leave the windshields like they are. Nice job! :)

The kit has several problems, i did not like the AMT kit..But once it is finished, it looks cool..I will consider what you said about windshields..Thanks :D

I beleive you actually mean the Town and Country Runabout (early) or Suburban (late). It was never called a Carryall. Only the trucks with the V8 option had Pontiac engines, the 6 cylinder trucks used GMCs own inline 6. No kit is available, but Shawn Carpenter has a resin conversion for '55 and '57.

Thanks for the clarification , Bill !

I just recently discovered the GMC version of the Cameo ! In all my 43 years , I'd never heard of them , let alone see one .

The GMC version is very rare, only about 1000 or so were built over the 5 year run, compared to over 5000 Cameos that were built just in '55, which was a short production year. Unlike Chevrolet, though, GMC continued to offer the Suburban/Town and Country after the Wideside (Fleetside) bed was introduced in mid '58.

Re reading some of the earlier posts, the '55 and '56 Cameo didn't have any bed trim, the bed trim was '57/'58 only.
