34 Ford Rat Rod Truck

This 1934 Ford Rat Rod Truck hails from Greeley, Colorado. Rats are the most popular posts on our Streets of Denver Blog. They get the most views and the most downloads. This is a truck that illustrates why.


Every angle is interesting; the details in the paint, custom metal work, nostalgia everywhere.


Clean meets rough, loud and rowdy.


The more you look the more you find.


Leather boots contrasting with polished aluminum and a great dash treatment.

The paint is oozing with cool.

Even the undercarriage has character.
Plenty of motor in a lightweight rig.

1957 Chevrolet Cameo

Here's a truck I'd never heard of, or seen before, the 1957 Chevy Cameo Pickup. Only 2,244 of these were made in 1957 and this one was sold in new in Colorado. The design language of the pickup is beautiful. While I was looking at it I could see the similarities in the curves and panels that the Corvette and Bel Air designs of the same year shared. What a great vehicle!
It was shown by Dean Mills, the second owner, who did an unusual thing by making it into a RestoMod. Originally it came with a 283 ci V-8 and a three speed overdrive transmission. To get it to keep up, and likely shame, modern traffic he upgraded it to a carbureted, all aluminum six liter  V-8 with 480 horsepower. Putting the power to the wheels is a 700 R4 automatic transmission mated to a 4:11 Positraction rearend. 
Flawless Interior
On top of the beautiful interior and exterior finish work, he added Brazilian Tigerwood flooring in the bed. The truck's original features include the fiberglass box and tailgate cover and paintwork. Great truck!
