The 1956 Chevrolet Nomad will always be an icon for style. But this
one also has beautiful chrome, upgraded power, four-on-the-floor,
and a great color combo inside & out. So we know you're going to
love one of the coolest and rarest grocery-getters of all time.
The Matador Red and Dune Beige two tone is absolutely striking. You
can really tell they took their time to invest in a quality
application, and the modern clearcoat finish loves the sunshine.
Plus, the two-tone looks particularly nice on a '56. The sweeping
side trim is exclusive to this year, and it allows for a
full-length streak of cream within the red to make for arguably the
most artful look of the Tri-Five era. And speaking of trim, there
was also a good investment keeping it clean, complete, and bright.
You'll really love all the brightwork, from the 1956-only grille,
to the bright slats protecting the rear hatch. And the way the
panels line up nicely, the weatherstripping feels fresh, and the
quality of the glass all tell you that even the fundamentals were
watched during the restoration. In fact, this one looks like a time
machine back to the 1950s. The only pieces that hint at the added
power within are the large dual exhaust tips and competition-style
Torq Thrust wheels.
The interior continues the exterior's theme of two-tone red and
cream. The dash, headliner, carpeting, and custom door panels all
coordinate for a thoughtful presentation inside and out. We
especially like the two-tone seats that have a classic look but a
custom presentation, right down to the fabric inserts and matching
throw pillows. There's a freshness here that makes the interior
great to share with family and friends. Plus, they integrated some
great features, like power front windows and the steering wheel is
on a tilt column. And your right hand will rest comfortably on the
Hurst floor shifter.
The Tri-Fives were the dawn of the small block era. So it's great
to see this history under the hood with such a tidy and bright
engine bay. But if you dig a little deeper, you'll discover that
this is a 327 cubic-inch motor borrowed from a '65 Corvette. Not
only is this a larger displacement than anything offered in the
Tri-Five era, but also they added the right performance pieces. You
have a Holley four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, and Hedman
headers feeding dual exhaust. And while they were investing in the
engine bay, you also see the right supporting components everywhere
from fresh belts to the aluminum radiator. You get full control
over this classic with the four-speed manual transmission. And it's
easy to enjoy this Nomad thanks to nice driving features like power
steering, power brakes with front discs, and wide Cooper Cobra
Less than 8,000 Nomads were produced in 1956, making them a rare
Chevy by far (only the Corvette had less.) Now almost 65 years
later, you are going to be hard-pressed to find one that is as
complete and well-finished as this example. Call today!!!
