Description for Chevrolet Nomad 1955

The Nomad was completed in 2015 after being completely stripped to bare metal. It is a rust free car. The colors are Corvette Switchblade Silver over Honda San Marino Red. The red was very difficult to photograph however the shadowed photos and engine/ dash color are very representative. The red is a deep red but not close to maroon. The silver has pearl in it. The Nomad is very classy and opulent in all aspects: Color combination, all double stitched leather with a ONE PIECE suede headliner, stance, performance and reliability. The entire Nomad is immaculately clean inside and out- it is a consistent car show trophy winner. Mechanical: The engine is a Summit crate engine 350 cubic inches (5.7 L) four bolt main. It starts right up and has a somewhat subtle exhaust note through the Flowmaster Stage II exhaust system. The engine does not drip or burn oil. It uses regular gas. The radiator and condenser are aluminum highlighting a sterile, tastefully done engine compartment. The fan is belt driven. The engine runs at 180F (82C) even on 95F (35C) hot days. The transmission is a Turbo 400 with solid, smooth shifts. The gear shift is mounted on a chrome Ididit Steering Column. The rear axle is a beefy positraction unit. Brakes: Power assisted with discs in the front and drum in the rear. Parking brake is positive. AC: It is an original air conditioned car. The original vents were adapted to a Vintage Air system which runs very cold. The entire inside is lined with Dynomat sound/heat shielding. Suspension: It has new rear leaf springs with extended 3 inch (7.6cm) shackles. The front has a 1 inch (2.54cm) drop. It has an over sized front sway bar. The combination gives the Nomad a great looking, lowered stance without comprising ride or stability. Electrical: Completely redone with a upgraded Ron Francis wiring system. Everything works. Undercarriage: I ice picked the the entire floor pan and discovered no soft spots (rusted areas) The drivers pan and transmission hump was replaced because previously the Nomad had a manual transmission and clutch. The undercarriage is coated with a heavy undercoating. Chrome: All of the chrome and stainless was refinished/replated. The chrome is flawless and scratch free. The side stainless inset area is painted Switchblade silver matching the top- see photo- Just one of the numerous subtle details found throughout the car. Tires/Wheels: Goodrich radial TAs P235/70R15 showing minimal wear. The tires clear the fenders on tight turns. The wheels are Retro Torque Thrust Wheels showing no curb damage or flaws. Interrior: Amazing! The seats and door panels are all done in two tone gray leather that is double stitched. The headliner is one piece suede in a lighter gray complementing everything. The steering wheel is matching leather matched. The doors and windows including the small vent windows all close easily, solidly, and squeak free. The tailgate and rear window open freely and lightly. All of the windows and windshield glass is pit and scratch free. The glass is factory tinted green. There is another super rare factory windshield available should the buyer want to take advantage. Another subtle detail is all of the window trim is chrome plated. It makes the whole interior pop. See photos. The carpet is open looped typical of the era. There are carpeted floor mats front and back- they are not hiding wear or dirt. Overall, the entire interior is fresh, clean, sparkly, with no evidence of dirt, filth, wear, or odor. The Nomad has never been smoked in- the owner is a nonsmoker. Dash: Painted to match the car. All chrome is flawless. Another subtle detail is how the Autometer instruments were incorporated in the dash. See photos. The Sunpro tachometer is mounted on the column. The speedometer is original- not a soon to be dated aftermarket cluster. Frankly, the dash is really cool! The sound system is awesome- Custom Autosound with MP3 and an amplifier tucked in the glove compartment. There are six speakers including two subwoofers.
