    So with the sale of my 1959 Nomad after 14 years... decided it was time for a new name.
    Since its not clear how long the Chieftain will be in the stable, and even if it is a 1951 (as the State of Minnesota has verified and not a 52 ?!?). Going forward I will be just using my name

    Nice! Good to see you got a name that shouldn’t need to change. :D And, congrats on the Poncho!

    Bruce, nice score on the 51! Kinda hate to see the 59 go. Did it stay local?

    No, it went to a guy in Texas
    He is putting in a 327 and believe a new Transmission
    He actually knew about the build from the HAMB, which saved a lot of explaining:cool:
    It now also has wide white walls and spinner hubcaps

    I was ready for a new project and look forward to next summer with the Poncho

    I know what you mean! Way back in the day (70's) I had a 50 sedan delivery and a 51 sedan. Even then the trim parts were really hard to find so much so that I put a 51 grille, hood ornament, grill & center medallion on my 50. The center medallion and hood ornament were NOS that I obtained from guys that dealt in NOS Chevy stuff.

    I was already getting a lot of pushback form people who refused to believe that there ever was a 59 Nomad, Imagine whet some night do with the Pontiac in my avatar?:eek:

    Congrats on the Pontiac! Unless it's had some surgery the single piece screen didn't come in until the back end of '52..

    Real nice though. Hope you'll get to enjoy it, mine's been a lot of fun and yours should too.

    It was a two piece windshield, as the center gaps in the trim will attest. the new one is very nice and the top is tinted, assuming its fairly new.
