    Took most of the morning mixing paint for touch up but I did find out it is war bonnet yellow from 1971-1972 general motors. They could of saved me alot of time by writing the color code down when they repainted it in the 70's but I am sure no one was thinking about it at the time.

    Looks like riverside gold to me, my brothers 69 vette is riverside gold. Looks identical to that 55. Looks good PJ!

    Nomads are the best examples of the 50's GM styling.

    I would really like to know how you lowered your Nomad. It is beautiful and sits just right.

    I put 2 inch dropped spindles in front and cut half a coil and in the back I used danchuck 3 inch drop lowering springs. Don't use lowering blocks tried it doesn't work well. The nomad still rides great.

    Thank everyone for the comments we love the nomad. I did run disc brakes up front just wanted to make it safe when my wife is driving the kids around.
