Chevrolet Nomad 1956 Description

Is the Chevy Nomad the ultimate wagon? There surely aren't many that are more handsome or desirable than this beautiful 1956 Nomad, nd despite those two stylish doors, t's still a practical hauler when it needs to be. With a built 350, n overdrive transmission, ll the modern conveniences on this frame-off restoration, here's no better way to haul your stuff home from the store than this.Of the Tri-Five Chevys, he '56 best combines flash and understatement, articularly with two-tone Bel Air trim. The inky black paint works quite well with the light yellow contrast panel to highlight that dramatic line that runs from nose to tail, iving even the utilitarian Nomad a very sporting look. Befitting a car of this caliber, he paint and bodywork are very nicely done, ffering great gaps and alignment, s well as a shiny final finish that's the direct result of many hours of hand-rubbing and buffing. Classic Nomad styling details like the ribbed top over the rear cargo area, he chrome rub strips on the tailgate, nd 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 just a fully restored trailer queen, ut that doesn't make it any less appealing. In fact, he upgrades it does have only add to the driving experience, aking this the Nomad you buy to drive from car show to car show.Keeping the interior stock was obviously one of the builder's objectives, o the factory bench seats remain in place, eatly wrapped in period black and yellow upholstery that works perfectly with the exterior color combination. The original dash was color-matched to the bodywork and fresh gauges from Classic Instruments are in place in a single sweeping pod ahead of the very trick custom steering wheel that looks stock but carries a fatter rim. You will, owever, otice that the shifter indicator on the column includes overdrive and it tilts to make it easy to get comfortable behind the wheel. There's an AM/FM stereo head unit in the center of the dash and a brand new Classic Auto Air A/C system discreetly installed underneath, aking this a fabulous long-range cruiser. The cargo area is carpeted with the same lush black weave 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 built and beautiful 350 cubic inch V8. Bored .040 oversize and topped by a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, t moves the Nomad easily. Other upgrades include a polished high-rise intake manifold, allory Unilite ignition system, ong-tube headers, nd lots of polished aluminum and gloss black paint. That cool air cleaner has a high-tech look and the custom aluminum radiator tucks into the original slot up front. Power rack-and-pinion steering and front disc brakes with a dual reservoir master cylinder improve safety, nd the aforementioned 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission makes for easy highway driving. Long-tube headers feed a custom stainless dual exhaust system with a nice mellow tone, nd while there aren't any major mods underneath, t's incredibly clean and well-detailed. Torque Thrust wheels are a perennial favorite and look right on the vintage Nomad, ven wearing modern Continental rubber.There's a very good argument to be made for the Nomad's position as greatest wagon of all time, nd this '56 certainly makes for a compelling case study.
