The 1955-57 Nomad wagon is the most probably the most iconic wagon ever built and certainly a legend amongst surfing enthusiasts and fifties classic car collectors all over the world! The 1956 Chevrolet Nomad Station Wagon was at a list price of over $2,600, again the most expensive car of the entire Chevrolet line up in 1956 apart from the Corvette and for good reason! The two door Nomad was one of Harley Earls 'Dream Cars' and more reminiscent of a two door hardtop than any other station wagon, with the roof design borrowed from a 1954 Motorama show car, opened up rear wheels wells and a striped tailgate in chrome! GM insisted the Nomad was affiliated with the top-of-the-line Bel-Air models in order to attract more attention to it, as if that was really necessary! GM also had Chevrolet share the body with Pontiac which marketed their car as the Pontiac Safari.Nomads therefore, like Bel Air's, came loaded with chrome, carpet and full wheel covers and a V8 engine option! The stylish production run only lasted for three years with GM ending this iconic body style in 1957, primarily due to the vehicles exorbitantly high prices and consequently low sales and introduced a new body-style in 1958, ending the production of what has been commonly referred to as the "Prettiest wagon ever!" Only 8,530 Nomads were built in 1955; 8,103 Nomads were built in 1956 and 6,534 in 1957; their rarity and strong demand ensures continued appreciation over the years ahead.This particular example was recently customized and restored by it's most recent southern California owner who has customized the car with no expense spared to his personal preference including custom Black paint and a newly upholstered Black amp; White interior.This is a rare opportunity to own a beautifully restored example of an extremely striking custom 1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air Nomad Station Wagon in turn key ready condition throughout for any custom or resto mod American car enthusiast to enjoy or collect today!
