The 1958 Chevrolet Nomad 4-door station wagon

1958 Chevrolet Nomad

In 1958 the Nomad became a 4-door station wagon instead of a 2-door which made it less sporty than its predecessors. Outside and interior trim followed suite with the Bel Air series, however, all '58 station wagons had one taillight on each side located in alcoves to make room for the tailgate.
