This vehicle underwent a complete rotisserie, body-off,
nut-and-bolt restoration completed in 2014. This modified Nomad is
powered by a GM 572/720hp long block factory crate engine mated to
a 4-speed automatic transmission and has been driven 571 miles
since rebuild. This monster engine breathes through a 1150cfm
dominator-style carburetor and rectangular-port aluminum heads with
2.25/1.88 valves. A solid roller lifter camshaft provides lift
while it exhales through Billy Boat long-tube headers. Power is
transferred to the rear wheels through a 4-speed GM Supermatic
4L85E automatic transmission with a 2,300-rpm stall torque
converter and an electronic transmission controller that lets you
program shift points. A GM Performance heavy-duty ignition system
provides spark, while the engine compartment is finished off by a
GM Performance serpentine belt accessory drive system, a Be Cool
aluminum radiator and a flat firewall. Up front, the hood features
billet hinges, while the rear lift gate has gas struts. The low and
mean stance of this '55 Nomad is provided by a 4-link rear
suspension and RideTech coilovers front and rear, and has Foose
255/30x20-inch front and 395/25x22-inch rear Pirelli P-Zero tires.
Four-wheel power disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors
provide stopping power, while a Unisteer rack & pinion keeps
steering tight. American Autowire wiring powers the electric
system. The custom leather interior features silver piping, a front
bench seat, tilt steering, Classic Instruments gauges and a Vintage
Air system for air conditioning, heat and defroster. Build book is
