Vehicle Story

This 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad is a Southern California car that was purchased from the seller's neighbor and underwent a restoration that was completed in early 2021. The refurbishment consisted of a professional PPG two-tone repaint, engine upgrades, the addition of power steering, brakes, and windows, and a new fuel system, exhaust, wiring, interior, instrumentation, windshield, and more. Power is provided by a 350ci V8 with a Holley Sniper EFI kit, an Edelbrock intake, and performance headers, and it is paired with a 700R4 automatic transmission. This Nomad is offered with build documentation, original parts, and a clear California title.

The body was refinished in a professional PPG two-tone paint scheme three to four months ago. The seller reports the car was rust-free prior to the build, but required a new driver-side quarter panel and some patchwork on the door skins. Other features include all new chrome trim and rear hatch hinges, as well as a lighting upgrade to modern LED bulbs.

Aftermarket polished aluminum Danchuck wheels are wrapped in tires of unknown age. Handling is aided by power steering and power brakes, with discs up front. The raked stance was achieved through the installation of a suspension lowering kit.

The interior is trimmed with new two-tone brown and tan cloth and vinyl upholstery with matching door panels and carpet. Amenities include power windows, Bowtie aluminum trim on the dash, a Bel Air scripted emblem, and an analog clock. A vintage look AM/FM radio has been installed in the dash, and the seller reports that while new speakers have been installed in the kick panels, the wiring is not yet fully connected.

New aftermarket gauges are framed by an aftermarket 3-spoke steering wheel and consist of a 160-mph speedometer, an 8k tachometer, and readouts for coolant temperature, fuel level, oil pressure, and voltage. The 5-digit mechanical odometer reads 160 miles, which represents the total since the build was completed. True chassis mileage is unknown.

The replacement 350ci V8 has been upgraded with a Holley Sniper electronic fuel injection system, an Edelbrock intake, performance headers, and new wiring. Other notable additions include the installation of a stainless-steel fuel tank and a new dual exhaust system. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a 4-speed 700R4 automatic transmission.

Additional underside photos are available in the gallery.

The sale includes all parts removed from the car, restoration documentation, and a spare set of side windows.
