Description:

Is the Chevy Nomad the ultimate wagon? There surely aren''t many that are more handsome or desirable than this 1956 Nomad, and despite those two stylish doors, it''s still a practical hauler when it needs to be. With a period 283, an overdrive transmission, and all the modern conveniences, there''s no better way to haul your stuff home from the store than this. Of the Tri-Five Chevys, the ''56 best combines flash and understatement, particularly with two-tone Bel Air trim. The green metallic paint works quite well with the slightly off-white contrast panel to highlight that dramatic line that runs from nose to tail, giving even the utilitarian Nomad a very sporting look. Befitting a car of this caliber, the paint and bodywork are very nicely done, offering good gaps and alignment, as well as a shiny final finish that''s surely the result of many hours of hand-rubbing and buffing. Classic Nomad styling details like the ribbed top over the rear cargo area, the chrome rub strips on the tailgate, and the wrap-around rear side windows are all a big part of the Nomad''s appeal. All the chrome and trim has been freshened-and there''s a lot of it-making the car sparkle in the sunlight. Tinted windows and a slightly lowered stance gives away the secret that this isn''t a fully restored trailer queen, but that doesn''t make it any less appealing. In fact, the upgrades it does have only add to the driving experience, making this the Nomad you buy to drive. Keeping the interior stock was obviously one of the builder''s objectives, so the factory bench seats remain in place, neatly wrapped in period green and white upholstery that works perfectly with the exterior color combination. The textured cloth has a definite 1950s vibe to it. The original dash was color-matched to the bodywork and all the instrumentation is in place in a single sweeping pod ahead of the steering wheel. You will, however, notice that the shifter indicator on the column includes overdrive and that thing you''re wondering about on the top of the speedometer is a traffic light viewer, a popular period accessory that uses a prism to show the traffic light without having to look up. There''s an AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit in the center of the dash and a brand new Classic Auto Air A/C system discreetly installed underneath, making this a fabulous long-range cruiser. The cargo area is carpeted with the same lush green stuff as the rest of the car and it almost seems a shame to carry gear back there and risk getting it dirty. The engine is a period 283, perhaps borrowed from a ''57 or ''58 Chevy. Topped by a 4-barrel carburetor, it moves the Nomad easily, yet still looks quite stock, from the air cleaner to the valve covers. Power front disc brakes with a dual reservoir master cylinder improve safety, and the aforementioned 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission makes for easy highway driving. A big aluminum radiator keeps things cool and the dual exhaust system has relatively quiet mufflers with a nice sound. Torque Thrust wheels are a perennial favorite and look right on the vintage Nomad, even wearing modern Kumho rubber. There''s a very good argument to be made for the Nomad''s position as greatest wagon of all time, and this ''56 certainly makes for a compelling case study. Call today!
