A 1955 Chevrolet Nomad is already a dream car. But when you can get one that's already a full custom build with a powerful crate V8, overdrive transmission, custom A/C interior, and more, then you know this is the awesome total package classic that someone built just like you would, too. And this one is ready to run right now!
You can instantly tell this is an upgrades classic from the moment in comes into view. After all, the metallic deep red radiates a nice gloss to draw .....
attention to the rare and desirable Nomad body. 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: everything from to the 1955-only grille, to the bright slats protecting the split rear hatch. And icons like the wraparound chrome bumpers and jet-inspired hood ornament shine like mirrors. But, you can instantly see this one goes well beyond factory specs. The side trim is finished in bright red for a modern take on this classic. The American Racing Torq Thrust wheels are a nice upgrade that looks great against the chrome, and they also showcase the extra meaty rear tires. And this year's Power Tour banner on the windshield is a hint at how this one Is built to be a great all-around driver.
Those who love true classic customs will get excited about the interior. The two rows of brown seating are finished in a vintage tuck and roll pattern that has the old-school look, right down to the button-top seat backs. Even the door panels get this full custom treatment. Plus, the carpeting and dash pad coordinate with this color theme. More than just look nice, this has all the right upgrades for you to share this Nomad with family and friends. There's R134a air conditioning, tinted windows, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo neatly tucked away in the glovebox, and it all makes this a great place for everyone to spend some time. Plus, there are some nice upgrades just for you, like the wood and chrome Grant sports steering wheel, tilt steering column, crisp Dolphin gauges, and a B&M ratchet shifter.
The '55 Chevy was the debut of the small block V8, but the largest you could get them was the 265 cubic-inch motor. So this one celebrates that spirit while giving a healthy upgrade in power with a 350 ZZ4 crate V8. This has the right performance upgrades, like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, hi-rise intake, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. It looks tidy with the Edelbrock accessories on the air topper and valve covers. Plus, as you dig deeper, you'll see all the right supporting components, like upgraded pulleys, steel braided hoses, and an electric pusher fan. In fact, if this is starting to look like a versatile motor for power and robustness, then you love the four-speed automatic transmission that has highway-friendly overdrive. Plus, you have power steering, power brakes, and upgraded drilled & slotted front disc brakes.
This is a custom Nomad that's smooth and powerful with less than 1,500 miles on the whole package. That makes this one ideal for everything tailgating to running another Power Tour. So if you want a head-turning classic that has it all, call today!
