For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet Nomad in Austin, Texas

Vehicle Description

This stunning 1955 Chevrolet Nomad resto-mod sport wagon is a true beauty. It is painted in show quality Gypsy Red and India Ivory with a red and white interior, making it a true head-turner.

Highlights include a balanced & blueprinted 350 cu. in. LS-3 motor, LS-3 fuel injection system, and a 4L70E four-speed automatic transmission.

For some history on the Nomad, Dr. Gary Seghi purchased it in 1971 from the original owner and used it as a daily driver until 1991. From that time up to 2015, the Nomad was stored in Dr. Seghi's home in a climate-controlled garage. After an extensive search for someone to match his attention to detail, Dr. Seghi entrusted his longtime friend Bill Collins from Austin, Texas to restore the vehicle. Bill was know for his meticulous work in both of the companies he founded, Collins Guitars and Collins Custom Craft. After Bill passed away, Dr. Seghi went once again on a search to find the best possible shop to finish the car and that search led him to Nefarious Kustoms in Las Vegas, Nevada, where the 55'Chevy Nomad restoration was completed.

This extensive list of equipment and features show the amount of attention and detail put into this build.
