You are making me cry Ron! When I got out of the Army in Feb.1973 and came home there was a kid that had a 56 Nomad that he was going to "fix up" but sonn found it was too much work for him. It was a roller with no engine or trans, stripped down and in primer, decent stock interior, all the stainless and bumpers went with it. All for $90, a super bargain even then! I had just got a job and with a wife, 5 month old boy etc. I was short on money. I asked if he would hold it a week until i could come up with the money, he said sure. I went back the next week with the bucks and it was gone, he said another guy offered him $100 so he sold it! That was the last chance I ever had to own a Nomad.
My buddy's Chevelle 2 door wagon next to my beater 56 Handyman.
Real? Never saw one
I know that I posted my 54, Stude wagons, but don't think I've put a shot of my old Stude Lark here.
259 powered, auto trans., positraction rear.
I put just over 93,000 miles on this car before selling it, a coupla years ago.
This a real thing?
If I remember right this is a custom one off build.
I don't think this is a photoshop picture... I've seen a few of them over the past 50 years. On a 1960 Ford, with the exception of reworking the front fenders to the bumper profile, the '62 T-Bird front bumper, grille and headlamps were almost a direct fit, although some modifications were needed.
Working on mine today trying to get it roadworthy again
I think it started life as a 1956 Parklane wagon.
Lowered And the Crown Victoria trim was added. HRP
