800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This is the car that launched a legend, and this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad has been given all the right investments to make it feel like it turns back the clock. So check out everything from the whitewalls to the correct V8 motor, and you'll see a real classic that is really meant for cruising.
There is absolutely no better way to show off the rare and desirable Nomad body than in a two-tone color combo. And when you're looking for a cruiser of distinction, it's hard to do better than 1955's Dusk Rose. Plus, the India Ivory upper portion gives this a hint of sophistication. The trim tag tells us this is the factory-correct color combo, and it was resprayed as part of a full restoration in 2006. The car has only traveled about 2,400 miles since then. So you have an attractive shine that has been well-preserved. And the imperfections you'll find in the finish are more about the things that come from showing and washing. And you know this is the kind of car you show off. After all, this was the first year for the Nomad, and everyone loves seeing the iconic raked rear hatch and wraparound glass that made for one of the most prolific icons of the 1950s. These were the top-of-the-line Chevys that were exclusive to the Bel Airs, and these came with a lot of intricate brightwork. So it's nice to have a car look so straight and complete. It makes for a rolling icon, right down to the wide whitewall tires.
The interior is the right mix of vintage attraction and a useful classic. It looks stylish with the classic pattern on the seats, matching door panels, and a smooth dash done in the distinct Dusk Rose. It's nicely detailed, right down to the color-matched steering column and dome lights that greet you when the doors open. There are nice little added details, like the updated carpeting and seatbelts that make it a better cruiser. And the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with cassette makes for better driving music.
The 1955 Chevrolet launched the small block era, and so it's great to see such a classic-looking V8. This 265 cubic-inch motor is the year-correct motor correct displacement, and it looks correct right down to the air grabber. It's upgraded to an alternator to be a better driver, but a generator does come with the sale for those who want to show this as authentically as possible. It has a true classic style, and that means a car that makes you want to feel the road. But this one still makes it comfortable with features like the Powerglide automatic transmission and a modern tread hiding behind the classic whitewall design.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, service manuals, maintenance records, and build receipts. We like how this is a Nomad that has the look of a high-quality driver and the features that make it easy to cruise. You even get a spare steering wheel. It all makes for the iconic classic that you'll love taking out every weekend. Call now!
