Looks like it could be a solid project car. I like the 58 Chevrolet 4 door wagons. But I don't think the name "Nomad" should have ever been affixed to something with more than two doors.
So the Nomad for '58 was only a 4 door top tier wagon, no 2 doors. The 2 door was the budget Yeoman. Last year for the Nomad name. Check out the AC arrangement in this one in link.
That is correct.
I wish they would have done it right and built it like this:
Not to contradict what MotoMike said but I believe there where some Nomad tagged Chevy wagons in the early 1970's.?....Longroofs Rule!
I've forgotten about the Chevelle based Nomads, et al. To me the only real Nomad is the 2 door wagon of the 50's.
As stated the Nomad name made a comeback on the Chevelle, but I believe the Nomad name was used on wagons (4doors) through ‘61.
You mean, the Nomad name has been abused, beginning with the re-tooling which took place just before 1958?
OrthmannJ: Do you know if the '58 "Impala" wagon ever got finished? The picture date stamp is 2005. Wonder where it is now.
I don't know. I did a search on the google machine and that's all I came up with.
In the mix of photos it does show that it was painted and placed back on the chassis. I also found a section of customer cars on the Art Morison website that showed this car, but it was also in an unfinished state.
I would love to see the finished product, but as of yet I have been unable to find it.
There was a 'Nomad' in 1959....
I'll take that '60
No kidding. Love that ‘60. That was my ride home from the hospital was a white / Turquoise ‘60 Nomad wagon.
I had a 68 Nomad
They really should have named '58s and up anything else other than Nomad, if they were to be built different than the Tri-Fives, regarding the number of doors and styling interpretation, just to do justice to the Nomad name. I won't suggest calling them No Mads, though
When was the last time anybody saw a Vista Cruiser without an extended roof?
