For car enthusiasts there are certain vehicles that, for whatever reason, just instantly grab us. In the case of this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad, the current owners stumbled upon it in 1970, and despite the condition knew they just had to have it. They could even see past the fact that a person was living in the back of it. Literally when they purchased it, there was a mattress in the back and speakers hanging from the interior. But most importantly it was a complete Nomad. So for $350 they evicted the tenant and drove it home. According to the original body plate that still sits in the engine bay, this Nomad may have originally left the factory in Inca Silver and an Imperial Ivory, however today it sits in a shade from the House of Kolor line of paint. The vibrant orange paint is actually called Tangyellow Pearl which was shot over a white base. The Tangyellow is accented by a white accent line that starts at the front fenders and grows at the quarter panels. The white and orange are separated by perfect chrome trim. During its restoration the body received 7 months of body work to eliminate rust and bring it back to the pristine example that we have today. This Nomad originally left the factory with a 265ci V8, however when the owner purchased it in 1970 somewhere along the line a previous owner had installed a 1966 turbo fire 283ci V8. The owner was so impressed with the engine and how well it ran over the years that he chose to rebuild it during the extensive restoration instead of opting for a Chevy 350. During its restoration the engine was bored 30 thousandths to clean up the walls and received a 350 H.P. hydraulic cam.Open the doors and youll see a completely restored interior that continues the orange and white theme. The factory seat frames were rebuilt and covered in a white leather with a touch of orange to match. Below the seats is a burnt orange color that can also be seen in a Porsche. A Hurst shifter sits in front of the front bench seat and is responsible for controlling the 4-speed transmission. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information
