Car description

Up for auction is my 1956 Chevrolet Nomad. I have owned and been working on the nomad for a 7 years and begun a flawless Frame-off “Pro Touring”/ “Daily Driver” restoration. The Nomad has been built to appear to be a stock 1956 Chevy Nomad but drive and handle like a modern Corvette.

I purchased a new Computer Assisted Designed (CAD) “Nerd Rods” Chassis featuring Computer Numeric Control (CNC) laser cut tubing and plate that integrates the modern Corvette suspension and drive train components. The applied gloss Black Top" Chassisi coater and protector

The complete rear and front Corvette suspensions were disassembled and rebuilt using only the top brands like Moog, Energy, Timken Etc. The car was media blasted after purchase and Bodywork performed at a top rated custom hot rod shop in the state. The Rear end rebuild, new gear install, and front and rear suspension were also installed by Corvettes of Auburn. Contact information for those businesses is available upon request.

Below I have listed just some of the highlights and parts however many more parts are included in this auction. Just ask. If you are interested in the Nomad and would like additional information or pictures please call, message or email me. I will respond as soon as possible. I am also able to face time or Skype to show the Nomad or give detailed videos of any given part or area or just a video tour of the car.If you are in the area or are interested in viewing the nomad in person I can also accommodate that request.

Please note the Nomad is sold as is with no Warranty written, expressed or implied. Good Luck Bidding.
