1955 Chevrolet 150 Station Wagon
If you understand the difference between a 2dr sedan and a 2dr
hardtop, (hardtop has no post), then a Nomad is a 2dr hardtop
wagon, thus it has no posts on the doors. The Nomad is ONLY in the
Bel Air series, (no such thing as 210 or 150 Nomad).
For consignment, a 1955 Chevrolet 150 Station Wagon, often mistaken
for a Handyman. This car would make any handy man proud and also
make them look very successful, as it has undergone a full
restoration. As consigner states you could literally drive this
shower across the country with little to no problems except for
running out of space from the trophies you'll receive when you
enter shows on your way.
All bathed in black with no noticeable faults within its deep paint
which bathes all of the body and head and tail. The long metal top
is white, and chrome on this car is spectacular to say the least.
From the jet age hood ornament to the searchlights, mirrors, window
trimmings, bumpers and chromed egg crate grille its show car
quality. On either side we see a fab trim spear that runs from just
behind the headlights to the middle of the pillar less doors. A
beauty of a rocker covering begins halfway up the back of the front
wheel wells and plunges to the rockers where it continues on to the
rear wheel well. The front bumper has an additional bumper guard
bar running across the top of it, and on back triangular tail
lighting wraps around the ever so slight hint of a tail fin.
17-inch polished Billet Specialties wheels with knockoff styled
hubs in their centers are wrapped with some low profile rubber on
all 4 corners. The neat thing about this exterior is the tasteful
use of chrome with the black, it's not too little and not too much.
Just right baby bear.
A swing of either door and I'll be seeing you in all the familiar
places with custom red vinyl door panels and sculpted contemporary
looking arm rests with uber shiny cranks and handles. Inside
immediately your eye races to the dash where the only 1955 dual fan
dash exists on black painted metal top glory. Chromed bezels, knobs
pulls and steering column gleam for your attention, and you just
cannot put it down. A polished aluminum band runs through the dash
center and sports a punched pattern of bowtie logos. Below we note
Vintage Air and a few aftermarket gauges hanging below. The center
has a vintage looking digital radio, and in front of the passenger
is the second fan bump up within the dash, this one housing the
Chevrolet badge written grandmother's handwriting. In lieu of the
clock a round badge with yet another bowtie is cut out of the
middle. Below is red carpeting that is beautiful enough to have the
stars walk on their way into the Oscar theater. 2 like new benches
offer up the seating, the front being a split back so rear seated
passengers can access the second bench. In the back cargo area is
miles of pristine red carpeting and red smooth vinyl covering the
sides. This holds true for the interior of the gate, which is also
red vinyl, but has yet another large bowtie logo inserted in the
middle of it. So, if it's a handy man I question whether a
successful painter/paperhanger would be happy with this car for
very obvious reasons! A white headliner is above and presents with
many panels and all clean.
Within the black fully restored engine bay is a red block painted
and otherwise gleaming 350ci V8. It is topped with a 4-barrel
carburetor, and on the back is strapped a 700R4 4-speed automatic
tranny. 3.36 is the rear axle ratio. All bolt ons and other
mechanicals are polished for corrosion free showroom condition.
Frame and floor pans as well as spare tire housing, suspension and
rockers are all fully restored and painted with nice black
rustproofing. For the front, tubular A arms are now on with coil
overs and on back leaf springs supported by blue colored shock
absorbers. A Turbo muffler system is on in duals and these take the
handoff from the headers now on the block. Noted power slotted and
drilled disc brakes are now giving the car a woah factor on
A super quick starter, nice sound, great power, even nicer
acceleration and handling, and stops on a dime. All in the comfort
of near perfect interior seating and all functioning interior
controls, all floating in perfectly preserved red carpeting.
We get some fabulous cars in every shape and style, but this one is
really one of the nicest 150 wagons I've had the pleasure to have
laid my eyes on. A wonderful restoration that ticks like a swiss
watch, and looks like a Rolex.
