Car description

This Nomad is truly one of the nicest in California, if not the entire United States. Subtle in its modifications, it stays true to the original design and timeless classic look, but with all the comfort and modern convenience we demand in our everyday automobiles. The platform is an Art Morrison Chassis with an independent front end, Wilwood power disc brakes, and of course, power rack and pinion steering. A anti sway bar and fully adjustable coil-over shocks complete the front suspension. The rear has a Ford 9" differential with 3.73:1 ratio, Tru-Trac posi, and adjustable coil-over 4 bar suspension. The rear brakes are also power disc.

The engine is a new from GM 350 with Holley Terminator Electronic Fuel Injection. The engine is backed by a professionally built automatic with overdrive, making high speed freeway cruising effortless. The engine, transmission and differential third member were all purchased brand new and installed in 2012 by the present owner.

Bills Auto Upholstery in Brea, California did the interior, and it has a distinctive "wow" factor. Seating surfaces are red and black leather. Mercedes carpet is on the floor, and the headliner and door panels are also red and black leather. Under the upholstery is Dynamat sound deadening, resulting in a tastefully luxurious, well insulated, and quiet interior. Air conditioning / heat, satellite stereo with an aux output, and a custom console with cup holders and power window controls rounds out the interior appointments.

The Billet Specialties wheels are clear powder coated for ease of maintenance. Tires are BF Goodrich, and wheels and tires were new in 2013.

This car has been meticulously maintained by Kugel Komponents since 2012. Every inch of the car has been gone over to ensure a pleasurable and dependable driving experience. This car will hold its own at most any car event or show in the country, and it can be driven there in comfort and with ease. Close to $200,000 has been put into this project, and duplicating it could easily cost over a quarter of a million dollars.

Price reduced to $120,000, it is ready for a new owner, and is assured to be a focal point in any collection. Feel confident that this is a professional build with extreme attention to detail, resulting in an incredible 55 Nomad.

The instrument cluster has been recently upgraded, so the odometer reading is not actual. Rest assured - although this car has been driven extensively and enjoyed since completion, it is show ready in every way, and has the appearance of a freshly built car. As with any used car, there are a couple of minor cosmetic flaws - call for details.

Local inspection is encouraged. A lift is available. Please contact Jeff at 562 691 7006 for further details, more photos, and to schedule an appointment.
