The 1955 Chevrolet Nomad is one of the coolest classics around. It only gets better when it has been custom crafted with a cool color theme, street machine attitude, modern luxury interior, overdrive transmission, plenty of V8 power, and much more.
The Nomad is such an icon it doesn't need an introduction. But what we really need to walk you through are all the big investments that create the powerful presence you see on this one. Bahama Blue is a cool color you'd expect on a '50s machine. But the metallic glow and clearcoat shine instantly announce this is something far more modern and special. The same goes for the silver on the roof that creates the classic two-tone, but with a much more modern and sporty flair. The sleek look of this one is no accident with expertly deleted badging and door handles. It's part of the overall sporty attitude you see continued on custom pieces like the louvered hood and the Torq Thrust wheels with extra wide rubber in the rear. Even with all these upgrades, you can also tell they made sure to invest nicely to keep the chrome bumpers shining like mirrors and the panels straight for the side trim to appear almost seamless. So it's the ideal mix of cool history and an unmistakable look of performance.
Inside you can see they spent plenty of money making this look fantastic. The exterior blue returns on the dash and custom center console, and now it's joined by a nice tan/beige luxury setup. The front seats are dual leather buckets borrowed from a Cadillac, and they power adjust to your ideal position. Plus, there's more great upgrades, like power windows, power steering, an AM/FM/XM stereo, cup holders, armrest center console, and provisions for R134a air conditioning. But this is more than just a coddler. You have a Lecarra steering wheel, Lokar shifter, and full AutoMeter Sport-Comp gauge package. They all signal you'll like the performance of this grocery-getter.
The engine bay might just win you awards all on its own. They invested heavily to make sure you'll proudly show off all the shining components and the very tidy setup. And not only is this impressive, but they also painted the intake to match the smooth side walls. This is Chevy's mighty 327 cubic-inch V8, and so while the '55 Nomad was the birth of the small block, it never got anything this large from the factory. Plus, this has an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and shorty headers that add power while contributing to rumble of the dual exhaust. Plus, you have nice supporting component for this V8, like steel braided hoses, upgraded pulleys, and an aluminum radiator. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you're going to spot more upgrades like a Camaro front end and a stout Ford 9-inch rear. Plus, they added some modern driving conveniences like four-wheel disc brakes and a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive.
Complete with maintenance records, this is an iconic classic that combines terrific looks with real comfort and great driving features. That makes it the total package, and it's ready for you right now. Call today!!!
