Question S-10 Cameo ?'s

Hello all!

Well, I am new around these parts so I thought I would drop by and say hello. I was just wondering if you could fill me in on a few things with the Cameo. From what I have found out so far is that it is a limited edition. A prototype to the Typhone and the Cyclone. In '89 they only made about 37 or so. From my understanding, most came with the 4.3 liter motor, auto trans, digital dash, and power windows. Here is my dilema...I have had an '88 Cameo for about 9 years or so. At first I thought it was an aftermarket upgrade, but the more I dig into it, the more it points to being a legit Cameo. I have spent hours on the phone with Chevy headquarters and they seem to know nothing about it. Not even that the Cameo even existed. At least that is what I got from the guy I was on the phone with. He says there computer system doesn't go back that far. So I have found through research that running the RPO codes in the glove box will identify if it is one. So far I have an RPO code that says there is an invoice from the company in Shrevport Louisianna that put the Cameo stuff on the select few S-10's that got the mod. There is also a sticker on the driver's side door jam from the same company that states that the truck was altered by them. So to me it makes it look like a real Cameo, but there is no documentation on the net that says there were ever any Cameos made in 1988. Kinda odd, but would like to hear if anyone else has ever ran into one.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Re: S-10 Cameo ?'s

Chevrolet S-10 Cameo - Chevrolet made a limited production of the Cameo S-10 from '89 to '91. The package included Cameo decals, a sport suspension, complete ground effects kit (including diving lights and a roll pan), and high-back bucket seats, although some models lacked the gound effects and high-back buckets. In 1990 the 4.3L V6 was added as standard equipment boosting power to about 185 hp. The trucks feature 15x7 ralley wheels wrapped in P215/65R-15 Goodyear Eagle GT rubber. The sticker price on a loaded S-10 ran about $16,000.

There have actually been a couple that I know of for sale on the forum before and I know of a couple of members that still have one.

Re: S-10 Cameo ?'s

Yeah, I have found all that out also. Mine also has the high back bucket seats, full ground effects w/ decals, roll pan, fog lights, sport suspension, and S-10 Sport badges on the side of the truck and on the glove box.

I am just confused that everyone tells me that they were made from 89 - 91. Have you ever heard of one with the 2.8? I am asking cuz mine has a 2.8 HO motor with a 5 speed. I ran the VIN # just to make sure that it was an 88 S-10 and it is infact an 88. I had it dropped for the longest time, then found out how many were made and began to rebuild it to stock. I have some money invested into it now and would like to know that I am not just throwing my money into something that is not real. I will start looking into finding the build sheets that are located in the truck somewhere to see if the invoice from the company in Shrevport is in with it. If I find that, I assume it will be a legit Cameo, but will anyone believe that there is an 88 Cameo out there if everyone is saying that they were only made from 89 to 91?

I guess the reason that I am asking all these questions is that I might be interested in selling it and really have no idea as to how much to ask for it. Any input on this would be great. Thank you for reading!

Re: S-10 Cameo ?'s

You won't make much money on the Cameo if you are trying to sell it. They aren't that great of a truck. Yes they are limited production but who the hell really cares. It is just a stock S10 with GFX nothing special. Now if you had a Syclone that would be something to brag about. The Cameo is definitely a good looking stock S10 but nothing that you will make thousands off if you sell it.

I could say the same about my Xtreme because I have a very limited production model witht eh 4.3 5-speed fully loaded everything with Stepside bed. Not a ton of them made but still worthless like every other S10 every built with the exception of the Syclone. That is the only pickup to hold its value.

Now granted its not a syclone,but its the Pre Sonoma GT,the Sonoma GT's are rarer then the Cameos but they are just a dressed up S-10 also(well Sonoma).
So I would not go off about how they are not that rare Etc..as everything ages they get rarer,someone may want it,just like the Sonoma GT's so dont count him out that quickly!
I worked with a girl back in the Mid 90's that had a Blue Cameo,it had a decal up on the rear of the bed that said Cameo and it had GX also with fogs,but thats about all I can remember about it.
Here in town is a S-10 Durango,granted from what I can gather its just a longbed with a diffrent style color and probably a 4.3,dont say its not going too be worth anything either,its all about meeting up with the right person at the right time too make a good sale.
Dont get me wrong here,just dont count him out like that ASAP.
According too this EBAY ad its from 1988.

Re: S-10 Cameo ?'s

There used to be one at school. Everyone I've seen was missing the front. If it is indeed a complete cameo I am sure you can get a good amount for it.

Those charged with marijuana possession are Worthing High School teacher Sean Thomas, Wheatley High School administrator Gina Thomas and Whittier Elementary School teacher Susan Michael.

So it looks like they're targeting the teachers at schools that begin with "W."

Re: S-10 Cameo ?'s

Ya I kinda agree with you guys on the price, it can vary. I have a 91 Cameo I bought new, I was offered a decient price but I'm waiting for the right price to come along. As for how many are left .. well in 91 they made about 350, so I bet there are less than 100 1991 Cameos left.

Hey, this is really cool! Thanx for the support and for the sweet add on ebay. I might have to buy this. It would be a nice little addition with the truck. It is nice to see something else that supports that my truck is a real Cameo.

I am not sure if it is alright to ask this, but if it is, how much were you offered for your truck? Do you still talk to the guy that wanted it? If so, do you think he would be interested in an '88 Cameo?

Checking the VIN is easy. Just go by the tenth digit. J='88 K='89 Check the sticker in the driver's door jam for the production date. It may be a late '88 truck which could have actually been run on the beginning of the '89 production line. Sometimes they get overlapped when the manufacturers are trying to get geared up for the next year fast to beat the competition release date.

Re: S-10 Cameo ?'s

I was at an auction once when the sold a cameo, it was a 4.3 auto, it had the ground effect and what have you...

It ended up selling for 600 dollars, I'd would of gave it a 6.5 out of a 10 condition wise...

I've seen more sonoma gt's then the cameos...

That is correct...... I actually like the looks of the Cameo exterior a tad bit more than my Sonoma GT, but the GT interior is much nicer (especially the dash cluster).

The Chevrolet S-10 Cameo was made between 1989 and 1991 as a bid for the soon to come "Syclone Project". The Cameo was made in 2 versions,
the Cameo (with full wrap around ground effects) and the Cameo EL (front and rear ground effects only). The company which modified the factory vehicles was AFI (Auto Fab Inc.) in Louisiana. What made the Cameo line special from other stock trucks was: a sport suspension,15 x 7"ralley wheels,ground effects package including Cameo decals and fog lights, and a standard V-6. Most models also came with high back bucket seats and power package including digital dash. Although most of the "EL" and some "Cameo" models came through with basic equipment package stripped down trucks.

The 1989 Cameo is by far the most rare of the Cameo line. Only 37 were produced in 1989.

The bad part is that the "Cameo" was offered an "optional appearance package" instead of a seperate model so it technically is not as "collectable". The Sonoma GT's were actually a seperate model offered and the NADA book values are there which is especially good if your in an accident and repairs need to be done.

NOTE: Once you get that truck finished I would have it appraised and be sure to have all of the documentation you can i.e. receipts, and things like the ad on ebaY, etc.


Here is a cool website I found awhile back of a bad a$$ Cameo converted to V-8:

Re: S-10 Cameo ?'s

mint green and sky blue are the 2 most rare colors on the cameo's if you have one itsworth alot more......the way i explain the cameos is theyre pretty much a 1st gen xtreme if you will...im a 1st gen nut and would love to get my hands on one.....

Re: S-10 Cameo ?'s

A friend of mine had a white one back in high school, very nice truck until he totaled it. Needless to say I was quite sad. I think he may still have it, though there wasnt much to it last time I saw it. What a shame.

Well, I am new around these parts so I thought I would drop by and say hello. I was just wondering if you could fill me in on a few things with the Cameo. From what I have found out so far is that it is a limited edition. A prototype to the Typhone and the Cyclone. In '89 they only made about 37 or so. From my understanding, most came with the 4.3 liter motor, auto trans, digital dash, and power windows. Here is my dilema...I have had an '88 Cameo for about 9 years or so. At first I thought it was an aftermarket upgrade, but the more I dig into it, the more it points to being a legit Cameo. I have spent hours on the phone with Chevy headquarters and they seem to know nothing about it. Not even that the Cameo even existed. At least that is what I got from the guy I was on the phone with. He says there computer system doesn't go back that far. So I have found through research that running the RPO codes in the glove box will identify if it is one. So far I have an RPO code that says there is an invoice from the company in Shrevport Louisianna that put the Cameo stuff on the select few S-10's that got the mod. There is also a sticker on the driver's side door jam from the same company that states that the truck was altered by them. So to me it makes it look like a real Cameo, but there is no documentation on the net that says there were ever any Cameos made in 1988. Kinda odd, but would like to hear if anyone else has ever ran into one.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.


I have a 1988 Cameo s-10 right now I just painted and redid the carpet and headliner. The truck has a 2.8 v-6 with 5 speed, full factory ground effects with square fog lights and factory fog light switch in dash. Sport suspension from factory and air conditioning and also has "truck " in black and red embroided on door panels and seats. The title says 1988 and 8/88 on door jamb but the truck was first titled in Jan of 1989. In Pa it shows the first title date and state on all car titles. It had the factory cameo graphics on door sides and tailgate. I dont have the factory mags so i have custom painted and polished centerline rims.

Re: S-10 Cameo ?'s

There was a guy I went to school with, back in '88-'89, that had a black Cameo with the same options. So this would be the same time period. I remember it because all the Cameo's were suposed to have 4.3's in them but this one did not. It was like it was an entry level Cameo!

Re: S-10 Cameo ?'s

Wow thanks for reminding me about these trucks. I had a neighbor who was an artist and passed away recently but had a cameo, he cut the roof off so the interior is kinda shot but most of the bodykit is there along with the digital cluster, power windows, messed up buckets and a restorable center console, upgraded radio, aloy wheels with brand new tires on em. I think I can get it for damn near free.

Re: S-10 Cameo ?'s

Never heard of the Cameo's before, but I saw a Sonoma GT once back home, at first I thought it was a joke, but guess it was production.
