1956 Chevrolet Nomad High Quality Multi Award Winning Show Car

This one begs to be driven! You will never regret investing in a vehicle that was built for the high-end shows (our seller turned down the Concours d’Elegance invitation!) and yet loves the open road as much as you do! She has traveled less than 1,050 miles since completion. Please read carefully to understand the added value of investing in a turn-key, finished vehicle that a seller has put his heart and money into.

This is a complete restoration that started in 2014 and was completed in 2015 with tons of attention given to all the little details that make it a multi-award-winning show car. The car has always been stored in a climate-controlled building since restoration was completed. Some vehicles never quite get to that 100%, always something little that needs to be done. Not this Nomad, the necessary time and money was spent to ensure this was 100% complete with all the “little things” taken care of and finished. The vehicle always gets attention where ever it is driven and is a favorite at the local car shows and cruises. EXTERIOR: The vehicle was in great shape (already being shown as a super solid driver) when the restoration to its current configuration was started. Since it was in good shape, it was easy to remove all existing paint from the original sheet metal for sealing, priming, blocking, and Dupont Chroma base coat / clear coat of the red and white paint.OEM metal ensures all the body gaps are even, panel alignment is straight, and no wavy panels. There are no dings, dents, scratches, or chips. All original stainless was reworked and massaged and polished to show quality. Chrome was replaced with new or re-plated. Rear liftgate factory torsion bars were removed and strut lift assists were added for easy 1 finger operation. Liftgate was removed and sent to Madmook’s in CA (arguably the best in the country) to be straightened and re-chromed, to better than factory new. All glass is new, with all new seals. No scratches or chips. INTERIOR: A lot of time and attention was spent on the interior, this is one area where the details matter! Custom, made by hand, stainless steel sill plates, Ciadella’s ultra-leather custom Ray London design interior, seat covers, and panels with all the Bel Air trim. Look close at the carpet and you will not see any seams or bindings. Because the carpet was hand-stitched inside the car to eliminate all these. All hardware was replaced with new stainless steel screws and even all the screw heads are “clocked” the same way all throughout the car, they are at 12, 3, 6, and 9! Custom padded dash. IDIDIT chrome tilt steering column. Steering wheel wrapped with same ultra-leather material as seat covers. Auto Meter classic look gauges. The stereo is mounted under the front seat with remote control. Speakers are mounted under the rear seat. Vintage Air and Heat – which works great, even on the warmest of days. MECHANICAL: Rebuilt 355 Chevy with mild cam and roller rockers – Runs strong with no issues. Never an issue with overheating, even with the A/C blowing ice cold. Rebuilt 200R4 Transmission, with Art Carr Stage 2 Transmission components installed 1,050 miles driven since restoration was completed. Power Steering with new CPP 500 box with all new shafts and rag joints. Power Disc Brakes up front, drums in the rear with all new components. SUSPENSION: All suspension has been rebuilt using MOOG components and KYB gas shocks all around with sway bars. All steering components were rebuilt or new. Receipts and over 100 pictures of the restoration process are included with the sale. The car drives straight and everything is as tight as it should be.
