1955 Chevrolet Nomad
Don't call it a wagon, because after all, the 1955 Chevrolet Nomad is one of the coolest grocery-getters of all time. This American icon only gets better with the right investments like bright paint, an upgraded small block, and four-on-the-floor. There is absolutely no better way to show off the rare and desirable Nomad body than in the bold two-tone dominated by the bright red lower section. Even better is this stellar presentation being an update to the factory-correct colors. Everyone loves seeing the iconic raked rear hatch and wraparound glass that made for one of the most prolific icons of the 1950s. These were the top-of-the-line Chevys that ran with the Bel Airs, and these came with a lot of intricate brightwork. Thankfully all of these hard to source pieces are complete on this one Ã¢â‚¬" everything from to the '55-only grille, to the bright slats protecting the split rear hatch. But, you can instantly see this one goes well beyond factory specs. The modern Ridler wheels are a nice upgrade that looks great with all the chrome, and the large 18-inch size combined with the low profile tires to give it quite a sporty stance. Inside, this one does a fine job of integrating some nice upgrades into the classic style. For example, the seats and door panels still follow the factory pattern that has a hint of tuck-n-roll. But now they have comfortable cloth inserts to makes this a more ideal cruiser. As you slip behind the red and chrome steering wheel, you're reminded of what makes these Bel Air Nomads so special. After all, that dual cowl dash instantly gives this a Corvette-level appeal. And this one is complete right down to the full brightwork package and the AM radio that's still on display. But the Hurst shifter on the floor also reminds you that this is a driver's machine. The V8 looks great in the engine bay with the bold orange block radiating from within the darkness. And there's plenty of added shine on elements like the air topper, valve covers, and alternator. But more than just a nice presentation, you've got a solid upgrade in displacement with the 350 cubic-inch small block. Plus, it has been further upgraded to deliver better power and usability with features like the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, aluminum radiator, electric fuel pump, and Optima red top battery. You'll love how it fires up readily and gives a nice rumble from the dual exhaust. Plus, you have full control over this V8 power and its soundtrack thanks to the Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission. And because you're going to want to show this one off everywhere, upgrades like power steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of modern ZR-rated tires really make this Nomad a great traveler. Power, poise, and a solid presentation Ã¢â‚¬" this icon is such a thorough build that you know this is a rare opportunity at something very special. Call today!!!
