Some engine bay pictures.
Worth noting again that the Canadian built GMC trucks were manufactured with Chevrolet 235 engines.

To end this part of the story, I wanted to share a picture of Dad driving the truck last time when it was the way he gave it to me. (Note that he absolutely did drive the restored version too!!)

The black and white is me and my lady...

The very last picture is my boy Aspen hanging out with me on the seat from the 55 Cameo I had. Sadly he never got a ride in the 59. That's the only heartache I have about the truck... he would have loved it!

Beautiful truck and heartfelt story! What a process! I am just about to embark on rebuilding a 55 Cameo and read that you also had one. Did you restore that one too? If yes, do u have any pictures of the restoration process similar to your 59? I have seen the truck and it is all in pieces......the metal appears to be pretty much rust free and the fibreglass bed sides are really clean except for around the wheelwells where there is evidence of patching with more fibreglass. It comes with a 58 Stepside truck for parts; 2 engines; 1 tranny and the original frame (will need to verify VIN # to be sure), box; 2 sets of doors and all new glass. The previous owner had it on the road/took it all apart and then sadly passed away. Thanks again for all the great photos and details of your 59 build!
