My 80,000 original mile 57.
very nice. details?
You can just feel the fun in this pic! You did do some snow drifting doughnuts didnt ya?...
Its a car I have been aware of since I was 6 years old. The original owner bought it in June 1957 and she died in June 2007. One of my best friends bought it from her estate and owned it for 11 years. I bought the car from him last May. I have the original sales invoice and records up to present. I will share more pictures later. 283, 2bbl, powerglide. 1962 327 and 4 speed in its future!
Here is part of one I put together today:
My buddy Steve built this Nomad between 1978-1987. 1st photo of the car around 1985 heading to a car show, before being sold in Lake Havasu in 1987. After 31 years in Lake Havasu, AZ. the Nomad is now in my garage and it still sports the same wheels, 327, paint and striping that Steve had done back in 1981.
Just got her on the road last month
@bowtie56jw - How about a full size image of that clean 210. Nice!
Beautiful car. Just need to remove the headrests!
I like it and almost have enough leftover parts to make me one unless using 56 headlight rings would be too big of a foul? however I could use 57 olds ones I have and make it a custom...
My nice quad cab being combined with a crappy two door.
nice chevy dude!
looks just like yours!
Pat does nice work huh?
yea, hes a good old boy!
Waiting for me to do something to it! Original V8 stick car with later 350/th350 combo...Yes, I plan on putting a 4spd back in, hooked to a warmed up 327. Was going to be a gasser project for Dad and I, but he unfortunately left us a lot too early and it has halted my ambitions for her right now.

It has much better wheels now.
Taboo is still a 56 Chevy under all the custom work, lol
My family night cruiser.... I bought it wrecked in May 2017 and spent about a year restoring it.
Then my grandparents (CJ and Sherry Carlile) 55 Chevy they have owned for 46 years. We just finished a full frame off rotisserie restoration on it and got it back on the road after it was has been sitting off and on for the last 20 years. Was briefly running 8 years ago until the first time I ever drove the car and the distributor went out.
Back in the late 70's early 80's -

My '55 Sport Coupe back in 1985.
