So I'm checking it out pass quarters full of mud floors are rusted not a big deal then I ask how much he replays well its got a 327 with camel humps in the garage,and a rebuilt 350 as well both go with the car for 17k well needless to say I lost interest real quick but thought I would share

  11. I believe you could find a old nomad driver/beater for 17K. HRP
     

  12. damn dude i hope you dont suffer too much, safaris have to be at least twice as rare as a nomad

    Was it light purple? Looks like an old "Midas Muffler" car.

    I grew up in North Hollywood and the local "Midas" had a fleet of '55 and '56 nomads, all light purple with the words "Midas Muffler", and a picture of a genie with a (genie) bottle on both sides, all were kept in front of the shop at Victory and Lankershim.

    And "Filthy McNasty's" club was across the street. "Filthy" drove a black velvet hearse......but that's a different story.

    Brought back some cool memories. Thanks.

    Ya .. $1700.00 would have been a deal. $17K ... WOW. That's kind of out of sight IMO. But then again the world is full of knuckleheads that'll pay.

    He's asking 17k because he really doesn't want to sell it (for market price)!
    That's why its sitting in his yard, rather than being rebuilt in someone elses garage.
    Which is what the Nomad deserves.

    If you want it ask what he'll sell it for without the motor/trans.
    that's what I do when I try to bargain something. Shoot most of the time I say they can keep their motor and trans if its a builder.

    Price is high, but it is a Nomad. Hopefully someone will buy it and rod/restore it.

    Barrett Jackson has influenced a lot of owners to think their pile of rust is worth serious thousands. The owner will never realize what it's true market value is until he actually lists it for sale and hears some realistic, and low, offers. I noticed no hood 'V' and no trim holes on the front fenders so unless the front clip has been replaced, it started out as a 6-banger (not a big deal at all) but also might not still have the 55 Nomad 'Eyebrow Trim' (quite a big deal).

    Realistically I'm seeing from the pics. around 10k,probably was a red/ivory combo judging from the inner liftgate piece,missing diecast fender/door trim,55's never had hood v's ,just v/8 emblems under tail lights, They made a lot less nomads than 32'fords, unfortunately I like them both about the same!
