1955 Chevrolet Nomad

Don't call it a wagon, ecause after all, he 1955 Chevrolet Nomad is one of the coolest grocery-getters of all time. This American icon only gets better with a big-block V8 custom build, hat will blow everyone else's doors off.There is absolutely no better way to show off the rare and desirable Nomad body than in the kind of big bold fire engine red that commands attention wherever it goes. Everyone loves seeing the ironic raked rear hatch, nd wraparound glass that made for one of the most prolific icons of the 1950s. These were the top-of-the-line Chevys, hat ran with the Bel Airs, nd these came with a lot of intricate brightwork. Thankfully all of these hard to source pieces are complete on this one everything from to the 1955-only grille, o the bright slats protecting the split rear hatch. But, ou can instantly see this one goes well beyond factory specs. The American Racing Torq Thrust wheels are a nice upgrade that looks great with all the chrome, nd are those quad tailpipes out back?One look inside, nd you can tell how much was invested in this custom build. It starts with the leather buckets up front with comfortable tweed inserts. Its custom tan and red pattern is repeated on the rear seats, oor panels, nd carpeting for a very cool uniform look throughout the interior. You get a stylish three-spoke sports steering wheel for your left hand, itting on a new ididit tilt steering column, nd your right one works the floor gearshift. It would be a shame to ruin the cool look of the stylish speedometer on the dual cowl dash, ut there's also a need to have more info on what's going on in the engine bay. So, utoMeter gauges were tastefully installed where you can see them by hardly look out of place.The largest motor you could get in 1955 was a 265 cubic-inch V8, ut we all know there's plenty of more room under the hood. That's why someone made the wise investment of installing a classic 396 big-block in there. Besides just looking great with chrome trim on the valve covers, ir cleaner, nd alternator, he monster motor has been upgraded with enough components to make this Nomad even more fun to drive. It includes go-fast goodies like an aluminum Edelbrock intake, luminum radiator, ual electric fans, nd a high performance air cleaner. The Hooker Competition Headers really add to the power and help give this one a nice subtle rumble as it connects to the Flowmaster dual exhaust. It's easy to keep all this power under control thanks to the stout TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, ower steering, nd frond power disc brakes. By now you should have a clear picture of how special this rare Nomad really is. But just in case you don't, e've got a book of restoration receipts (over $13K spent on this in 2011 alone!) and we'll even give you some of the trophies this Nomad has already won. So when you feel like winning some awards of your own, nd being one of the rarest Tri-Fives out on the road, all us!!
