Is there anything more desirable than a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad? How about one that was restored to have strong small block power, four-on-the-floor, and a sleek show-ready style. So if you'd love to drive a legend, the ultimate one is up for grabs right now.
This car looks striking in blue. You could almost get this kind of color in 1957 (it looks like a mix of the factory's Larkspur and Harbor hues) and so it keeps the right classic tone. But the factory would never deliver this .....
level of gloss or metallic radiance. In fact, while we're told the restoration is 16+ years old, that's a secret you can keep if you want to. When you pay for quality and give it good care, the value endures, and this is the proof because this looks like it was done in 2020. And when we say good care, we know it has been babied by the same owner since 2007. Of course, we all know why a car like this commands top-level respect. These were the top-of-the-line Chevys that ran with the Bel Air coupes, and so these came with a lot of intricate brightwork. It's complete and shining on this one, including the Nomad's bright vertical slats over the hatch dual rocket-like hood ornaments, and golden Chevrolet emblems on this VC-code car. The full-length trim with the bright fan-style rear is a true icon all on its own, and so on such a well-done car like this, it's looking like an unbroken line of pure shine. It's all impressive, right down to details like the good window rubber and beautifully clean glass. But more than just look good, the 17-inch American Racing wheels with a nice sporty stance suggest this Nomad was made to roam.
The interior has the look and feel of quality. There are newer bench seat covers, a smooth dash, good door panels, and plush carpeting. It's all spacious enough for you to share with family and friends. There's even a Sony AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input to keep them all happy on trips. And of course, a Nomad is one of the sportiest ways to get all that versatile wagon cargo room for tailgating or vacation. And the reason why we keep mentioning driving this classic is that it really was set up for you to enjoy. They made investments like a Grant sports steering wheel, a tilt steering column, a Hurst floor shifter, and a handy under-dash tach.
The engine bay likes to impress, too. There's plenty of flair from polished details like the valve covers, air topper, radiator shroud, and more. And there's plenty of substance behind the style. This is a 350 cubic-inch ZZ4 performance crate V8 motor. It's built with the right power pieces, like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, a GM Performance aluminum intake, a roller cam, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. And it's also done with good supporting components, like the Summit Racing fuel pump, and an aluminum radiator with an electric fan. The motor fires up easily and runs smoothly. Best of all, you have proper control over it with the Muncie four-speed manual transmission. And speaking of control, this has power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a modern wheel size that lets you fit ideal performance or touring tires.
The sale comes complete with build receipts, restoration photos, and the owner's manual. This is the terrific-looking Nomad that's been restored so you can drive and enjoy it everywhere. That's an awesome package just waiting for a true enthusiast to grab it. Call today!!!
