1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad
History tells us a “Nomad” is a rugged journeyor to whom life is a road trip, constantly in search of the next adventure. In the classic 1950’s Chevrolet came out with their perfect traveler, the Chevy Nomad, born to travel the backroads of America. We remember them as becoming icons of the surfing culture on the West Coast of the USA. For Baby Boomers today the Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad represents a step back in time to where the long roofs were a connection to their youth.
This week, Carolina Muscle Cars, a classic car dealership from Benson, North Carolina, listed a 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad in the popular code 707 colors of Nassau Blue over Indian Ivory. A marvelous two-tone combination, the colors were original to this car. (See the photos of the Trim Tag on the ad page.) The stunning repaint to the original color was part of a frame-off restoration expertly done. The interior was all redone in the original black and white two-tone colors.
This car is one of 30 from what Carolina Muscle Cars calls the “Eastern Collection.” They are selling this collection for their client who traveled the country in search of the finest classic cars in America. Each of these treasures measures up to the quality of this Bel Air Nomad.
If you look at the ad photos you will see a shot of the odometer. It reads 22,233, and the tumblers on the odometer are so straight and true that you have to believe that these are the original miles.
They tell us this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad idles very smoothly and performs well, riding and handling as a classic 1950’s car would. Powered by the correct 265 cubic inch engine and backed up by the power glide Automatic transmission, they tell us the Nomad is “mechanically ready for a road trip and cosmetically ready for the show field.” The options include a Powerglide automatic transmission, full disc wheel covers, wide white wall tires, an AM radio, Chevrolet floor mats and the period correct tissue dispenser.
