Vehicle description

The Chevrolet Nomad made its debut constructed on top of a Corvette chassis as one of the Harley Earl fiberglass Dream Car concepts at the Waldorf Astoria Motorama in 1954. The subsequent all-steel bodied, mid-year production Bel Air Nomad won favor with customers who desired a 2-door station wagon that could haul building materials home one day and stylishly run surfboards out to the beach the next. This first-generation Chevrolet Nomad underwent a body-off restoration and was faithfully painted back into its original two-tone Gypsy Red and Shoreline Beige color combination. The Nomad was dispatched into climate-controlled storage following its restoration and has not been driven since. The halo station wagon appealed to a niche market, and as such, this Nomad is one of just 8,530 hardtop-styled Chevrolet dream wagons sold for 1955. Low production numbers belie the lasting impact of the Nomad on the American station-wagon landscape. Under the hood is a 265 CI small-block Chevrolet V-8 that helped change the automotive world as we know it. The compact yet powerful V-8 was available for 180 HP at 4,600 RPM with a Rochester 4-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust. The V-8 featured hydraulic lifters for smooth and quiet running when backed up by the optional Powerglide 2-speed automatic transmission. Optional power steering and power brakes add road control to the potent underhood package of the top-flite Nomad wagon, with factory air conditioning ready to keep the two-tone beige-and-red leather interior at optimal temperature. Power windows, in-dash clock and AM radio add luxury to Nomad style. Stone guards and rocker-panel moldings join front and rear bumper guards for stylish protection on the sporty station wagon from Chevrolet. Steel wheels with full-size wheel covers and bias-ply wide whitewall tires are ready to get the Nomad down the open road.
