Description

Here is a wonderful example of the most desirable station wagon of all time: the Chevrolet Nomad. This rust-free car spent much of its life in New Mexico and is nicely equipped with factory options like a Power Pack V8 and power steering, along with nice upgrades including power front disc brakes and electric wipers. Combine that with the rarity of a Nomad and you’ve got a real collectible.



The Nomad was the most expensive Chevrolet passenger car in 1956, topping even the Bel Air convertible. As such they made hardly 8,000 Nomads that year – a scant 0.5% of production! So yes, the Nomad is a rare car.



This particular example was a late Los Angeles build and has been with its last owner for almost 25 years. It is perfectly solid underneath. The floors, frame, and rockers are all original and in amazing condition (a testament to years in the southwest). Originally a code 757 Inca Silver / Imperial Ivory car, it was repainted Matador Red / India Ivory for a brighter look. There are also matching fender skirts. The chrome and stainless are in great condition with many new or reconditioned parts throughout. Note the Coker whitewall tires with painted wheels and correct 1956 wheel covers; such a nice look on this car!



But this Nomad is more than good looks. It has its original 265ci Power Pack V8 with the correct FB suffix, triangle mark heads, and Rochester 4-barrel carburetor. Nice! It also has the correct air cleaner and exhaust manifolds. There is also an original style generator with rear mounted power steering pump. The engine has been recently detailed and wears the correct red color for 1956.



The Powerglide automatic transmission was just rebuilt and works perfectly. The brakes have been converted to front discs with a power booster for improved performance, while the power steering has several new components as well. The exhaust uses dual glass packs for a proper 1950’s sound.



The interior is the correct code 611 Ivory vinyl with Charcoal cloth inserts. The unique Nomad headliner looks terrific with all the shiny bows. All gauges and indicator lights work properly. So do the horn, heater / defroster, turn signals, parking brake, dash lights, backup lights, and more. There is also the generous ’56 steering wheel and a great looking dashboard. Note the Kleenex box along with the aftermarket AM/FM digital radio. And the windshield wipers have been converted from the unreliable vacuum setup to a modern electric drive.



With their unique styling and rarity, the tri-five Nomads continue to grow in popularity and value. And this solid turn-key car, with its exceptional overall condition and great blend of features, represents a quality example of one of Chevrolet’s finest.
