1955 Chevrolet Nomad


Only 831 miles on a high end, custom rotisserie build! Roadster Shop chassis, GM crate motor and trans. All work done by professionals in their field. The end result is a very tasteful, dialed in, detailed car. I've spent the last 10 minutes trying to take it all in. I've said "wow" in my head a dozen times! It includes a thick folder of documentation.

EXTERIOR: The body was restored by one of the best shops in the area. It was stripped to a bare shell, put on a rotisserie and media blasted. The body is 100% rust free; every square inch is laser straight. Painted a stunning Royal Ruby Merlot metallic and a Sterling Gray metallic roof. Of course, it's polished like glass. If taken care of, this paint will look this good 20 years from now. All new smoked gray glass. The upper tailgate and lower liftgate were completely restored by a specialist. It was recurved, an anti-rattle plate was added, the hinge was upgraded with gas struts, new stainless cable guides and latches, new cables, and retractors. The chrome on the car was done by AIH Chrome to show standards. The stainless trim was sent to Vintage Vehicle where it was straightened and polished like new. Optional bumper guards, rocker trim, dual mirrors, door handle guards. It has Halogen headlights and LED taillights. Sitting pretty on Torque Thrust ll Custom Shop wheels. They are 18x8s in front 18x9.5s in the back and are wearing BFG G-Force performance tires.

INTERIOR: Wow, I'm sitting in the car, and it is as close to perfection as you can get. First of all, it is beautiful, first class. I feel I'm not dressed up enough! It was completely gutted media blasted inside, then lined with sound deadener. Completely updated AutoWire wiring harness and fuse box. The custom work was designed and built by Cassin Customizing. 2 tone gray leather throughout. Beautifully sculpted side panels. Four custom built bucket seats that are bolstered and upholstered in glove soft leather. A custom-made waterfall center console extends between the back seats. It is home to the stereo touchscreen, USB connectors, a/c vents, cup holders and a Lokar electric sport shifter with a bump shift. Inside the console is a TCI transmission controller. In the way back there is a custom compartment that conceals the battery and stereo equipment. The system includes double DIN touch screen, Rockford Fosgate 1000 watt amp, 10-inch subwoofer, four 6x9 speakers and two 5-inch speakers with tweeters. Down on the floor is a German square weave carpet, electronic drive by wire gas pedal and retractable seatbelts. On the ceiling is the chrome ribs, a suede headliner, and visors. LED interior lights throughout. The metal is painted as slick as the car, every piece of chrome is show quality. The dash area is beautiful with a modern set of gauges, working clock and Vintage Air electric controls. Beautiful steering wheel on a tilt column.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Right out of the crate, it's a GM Performance LS3 motor. It's 376 cubic inches making 480 hp. It has a GM engine controller, a TCI EZ TCM controller and ceramic coated ZL1 exhaust manifolds. In front is a complete Wagner accessory drive system with serpentine belt, billet pulleys, modern alternator, and power steering. PRC matched set of polished radiator core support, a/c condenser and radiator. It also includes a polished overflow tank, electric fans, hard hose with shrink clamps. Polished Wilwood power brakes. The engine bay is painted as slick as the car, new hinges, and latches.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Completely restored tailgates open and close easily. Inside is carpeted and upholstered beautifully including a custom-made compartment for stereo equipment and battery.

UNDERSIDE: The body was stripped to a bare shell and placed on a rotisserie. The underbody is restored like new; it is 100% rust free clean metal painted the same color as the body. The frame and components are powder coated Victory Gray and cleared. New Roadster Shop Spec chassis was rolled underneath this car to make it handle like a new car! In front it has Strange adjustable billet coilover shocks, Unisteer power rack and pinion and Wilwood Pro spindles. In back is a triangulated four link suspension with coilover adjustable shocks and tubular control arms. Baer drilled and slotted 11 inch discs at each wheel with 4 piston calipers. All stainless brake lines. Stainless fuel tank within tank pump and stainless lines. Hand fabricated and polished stainless 3 inch exhaust with X-Pipe and Magnaflow mufflers. Looking up at the motor it's all aluminum with a high torque starter. A custom drive shaft leads back to a Strange 9 inch rear with 3.50 TruTrac posi and 31 spline axles.

SERVICE: We gave the car our typical inspection and only a few minor tweaks had to be made: front right turn signal was repaired and replaced an exhaust collector gasket.

Honestly as good as I've ever seen and I see thousands of cars. The fit and finishes are amazing in and out, top to bottom. It functions just as well. They also did a great job picking colors, stance, wheels, options etc. There isn't a better one anywhere!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership.
