1955-1958 Cameo and Suburban Carrier Spare Tire Door

Of the many stand out features of these two special trucks, none is more unique than the spare tire position. So much designing and tooling was required to make this hidden from view.  A salesman in a dealer’s showroom would be sure and praise this hidden, yet not difficult to remove, spare tire.

By using the lug nut wrench two stainless steel securing nuts could be removed. The spare tire “door” could then be swung down to allow the horizontal stored spare tire to be removed.
