So, you've undoubtedly checked out the photos of this incredible Chevy Nomad and probably formed a few thoughts and opinions. Indeed, the car is a very unique custom that was built to turn heads. And yes, the car does offer one lucky buyer the distinct opportunity to own an exclusive classic that's capable of storming shows. However, this streamlined wagon isn't just some carved cruiser that's been wrapped in pretty paint. It's a choice national award winner that, thanks to ground-up customization, continues to be a crowd favorite. Backing a raucous 383 with a roster of top notch equipment that makes it safe, appealing and practical, this Chevy is REAL serious about fulfilling its big promises. The product of a well designed build, it's been recognized multiple times by the National Street Rod Association. And the best part: even with its show stopping aesthetics, you can hop in the car and easily parade it up and down Main Street. If you're the kind of enthusiast who wants a classic that poses well for judges AND looks good on the strip, check out this knock-out Nomad!

POLISHING A DIAMOND

When you set your sights on creating something legit and truly unique, you just can't go wrong starting with vintage American steel. Thankfully, the folks at Mooresville, North Carolina's Time Machines certainly know how to massage solid factory fodder into an immaculate, world-class custom. Stripped all the way to bare metal during a detailed, frame-on restoration, this Chevy really began to hit its stride in the summer of 2015. With the help of considerable time and construction loot, the car was transformed from a cool classic into a national headliner. A big reason for that headlining status is a smooth profile that was bathed in a heavily researched combination of Aston Martin Bronze and 1979 Ford French Vanilla. And today, this wagon prowls the scene as a dreamy pavement pounder that's poised to turn heads!

Featuring details penned by famed hot rod designer Eric Brockmeyer, this trick trophy queen really puts the “show” in showstopper. At the front of the car, a custom mesh grille centers a lighted “Nomad” emblem between a smoothed bumper, custom marker lamps and trick halo headlights that are tucked under customized hoods. At the top of that grille, a massaged hood leads the eye to custom glass, which floats factory stainless trim behind polished windshield wipers. At the base of that smoked greenhouse, a solid profile aligns elegant, reimagined spears beneath svelte billet mirrors. And at the back of that profile, a “Nomad” branded tailgate folds between a second smoothed bumper, custom trim and custom, monochromatic taillights.

STROKED AND STOKED

This sweet looking wagon is powered by 383 cubic inches of polished and painted small block that was sourced directly from BluePrint Engines. Built to tear up the street and wow show goers alike, the fully sorted mill spins 432 dyno-proven horsepower into 455 lb./ft. of rock-crushing torque! At the front of the color-keyed block, a stainless-trimmed radiator centers a brisk SPAL fan between a polished tank and a polished cap. Behind that core, a polished VIPS accessory drive spins traditional V-belts around a polished alternator, a polished AC compressor and modern power steering. Behind that drive, textured Sanderson headers pierce brilliant MSD Super Conductor plug wires, which are snapped to an aftermarket points distributor. In front of that distributor, lightweight aluminum heads tilt polished valve covers under a polished water tube and a polished breather. Above those heads, a hand-made air cleaner rides a big Edelbrock carburetor. And detailing is on point, with a polished brake booster perfectly complementing a polished fuel filter, a coated fuel pump and bright dipsticks.

JUST THE BASICS

Throw this Chevy on a lift and you'll find undercoated floors that, along with the car's Satin Black frame, sport a solid, road-ready appearance. At the center of those floors, a rebuilt 4L60E 4-speed spins torque to a factory tri-five axle. At the ends of that drivetrain, a factory suspension makes excellent use of front lowering springs, a 1-inch front sway bar and retrofitted rear sway bar. Power-assisted turns come courtesy of a quality CPP steering box. Stops are provided by power-assisted discs and drums. Heat wrapped exhaust pipes spent gases through an H-shaped crossover, throaty turbo mufflers and polished stainless tips. And all that mechanical goodness rolls on chromed Foose Legends, which spin two 215/45ZR17 Nitto Neo Gens in front of two 275/40ZR18 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs.

CUSTOM INSIDE AND OUT

Straight off the assembly line, Chevrolets were pretty spartan. But this classic is long past its days of serving as frugal transportation from point A to point B. Pop the car's remote doors and you'll find $16K worth of custom, Dynamat-lined upholstery that was installed by Chuck Hanna of Mooresville, North Carolina's Lake Norman Tops & Interiors. At ground level, eight yards of German square weave carpet balances a small console between piped and color-keyed floor mats. On top of that carpet, quality French stitching cinches 250 square feet of Finesse Leather around a factory front bench and a Cadillac rear bench. In front of those seats, a matte dash wraps bowtie-branded stainless around Vintage Air conditioning, modern audio, modern Cruise Control and a full array of Classic Instruments telemetry. At the sides of that dash, custom door panels front convenient power windows. In front of the driver, an ornate steering wheel laps a polished, tilting column. And a neat touch is a custom, Rolls-Royce-style umbrella holder integrated into the car's door jamb.

Unique, lust worthy and fully capable of cruising up and down Main Street, this awesome Nomad is an excellent combination of classic street rod looks and proven resto-mod performance. This car has the potential to pull down serious trophies and can politely cruise to the house 30 minutes later. And with top-notch craftsmanship and a roster of first class components, it's poised to impress in either of those realms!
