This 1957 Chevrolet BelAir Nomad Wagon is being shown off at the
Gateway Classic Cars showroom in San Antonio/Austin. By the mid
50's Chevy was doing remarkably well considering it had not even
been a decade since the end of WWII. As Chevy unveiled their
remodeled Bel Air, they also announced their newest member of the
family, the Nomad Wagon. The Nomad was Chevy's Station wagon model
on and off from 1955 to 1972, but the most memorable ones are these
"Tri-Five" models. Their styling has withstood the test of time and
these rolling legends are highly sought after today. Originally
done in Inca silver over a black and red interior, this Nomads life
has been changed in the form of paint job in Red Pepper
Quintessence with a white roof. The interior has also been updated
with a fresh looking red and white vinyl interior, with power
bucket seats in the front and a bench seat for the back. The engine
in this classic cruiser will throw you back in the seat with
approx. 340hp coming from a 350CID V-8 mated to a 6-speed manual
transmission that is pushing power to the rear wheels with a
12-bolt limited-slip rear-end. Under the hood has been touched up
nicely with features such as an Edelbrock intake, long-tube
headers, Mattson aluminum radiator with 2 electric fans, electric
fuel pump with a manual in-line Mallory fuel pressure gauge, MSD
ignition and a Quadrajet carburetor. The two-spoke leather wrapped
steering wheel fronts a 140-mph speedometer and 8k-rpm tachometer
and auxiliary gauges for oil pressure, battery voltage, coolant
temperature and fuel level. (There is an A/C system set up in this
vehicle, but it is only blowing warm). This '57 Nomad is a blast
from the past and is ready to drive you into the future!
