1957 Chevrolet -Two Door- Nomad
- The two door Nomad was produced from 1955-1957.
- The Nomad's unique design had its roots in a General Motors Motorama show car of the dame name. It was designed by Harley Earl.
- It differed from other station wagons of the era by having unique styling more reminiscent of a hardtop sedan. The wrap around windshield and the rear windows were Harley Earl design trademarks.
- The Nomad's relatively short wheelbase and overall length in comparison to the rest of the Chevrolet line show modern characteristics to hatchbacks in later years.
- The platform used was GM's smallest two door body style with a rear bench seat that folded down to accommodate cargo and a two piece tailgate with a glass upper portion that swung up, with a tailgate that folded down were the features that made the Nomad very poplar.
- The Nomad came loaded with interior carpet, chrome spears on front fenders, chrome window moldings and gold exterior appointments.
- This RestoRod example has the following features: power windows and vents, vintage A/C and heat, am/fm stereo with cassette, "US Mags" wheels with low profile tires, a racing radiator, 350 cubic inch engine with an Edelbrock 4 barrel carburetor and electronic ignition.
