1957 CamAir Pickup Yogi Somerville

1957 CamAir Pickup Yogi Somerville

The 1957 CamAir is Yogi's total restoration of a 1957 Cameo pickup, including side trim from a '57 Chevy Passenger car and the cargo doorskin from a '57 Chevy Nomad wagon. Started in 2002, it is now on display in the Yogi's showroom in Monticello, Iowa after winning many car and truck show trophies.

The CamAir sports a big block 454 engine and a 700R-4 transmission. Power flows through a Ford 9-inch rear end to a set of Bridgestone tires on Billet Specialties Bonneville wheels.
