1957 Chevrolet Nomad
1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad Car History The Chevrolet Nomad is a nameplate used by Chevrolet from the 1950s to the 1970s and applied largely to station wagons. Three different Nomads were produced as a distinct model line, with Chevrolet subsequently using the name as a trim package. We have a beautiful restored 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad here at Adventure Classics that was restored to an unbelievable level which is an amazing driver with cool factory AC to drive and enjoy for many years.
The 57 Nomad is undeniably one of the most recognizable American finned cars of all time and is one of the most sought after classic cars on the market today, and will continue to be a great investment! Engine & Drivetrain Looking under the long hood on the 57, you will see what appears to be the original small block Chevy 283 cubic inch engine with the engine block, heads, and intake painted in Chevrolet orange. It has a black painted factory air cleaner, factory orange painted Chevrolet script logo valve covers, air conditioning, power steering, and power brakes. It all sits in a tidy engine compartment and is backed by a 3-speed manual transmission for better cruising speeds and mileage as it rolls on factory painted wheels with chrome Chevrolet wheel covers and white sidewall tires. Interior
The gorgeous restored red and black upholstery has a very sharp look on the full length bench seat and matching rear seat, factory A/C, red original steering wheel that matches the original red/aluminum instrument panel, with the factory instrument gauge package, crank windows, column shifter, and an equally restored gorgeous cargo bay thats just too nice to use for hauling anything and fully outfitted with matching carpets. Exterior Our Nomad is finished off in a bright new red paint with the off-setting top in white paint using the elegant factory Bel Air stainless trim for contrast down the flanks. The panels are smooth and have a great shine in the sunlight. This beauty was born to be driven and has the great grille, bumper bullets and hood rockets, emblems, chrome bumpers, and those iconic tail fins, as well as the wrap-around glass of the Nomad. This Bel Air has had a full restoration and has been preserved to its original look, stance, and condition. Great running and driving car. Everything works and drives the way it did in 1957.
