If you like your tri-five to be fun to show off AND fun to drive, this super cool tri-five is your next cruiser! Despite the exceptional sales of Chevrolet’s youthful Bel Air, the brand’s higher priced Nomad proved less popular and, thanks to attrition, has now become even scarcer. Fortunately, this slick resto-mod has always been a solid, complete car that benefitted from decades of owners who were smart enough to know what they had. And recently, when it fell in to the hands of a diehard enthusiast in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a lot of effort was sunk in to a professional, $134K restoration. Once the car’s tired enamel was removed, its rust-free Arizona profile was dusted in $16,500 worth of red and white 2-stage. And today, buffed and wet-sanded to a fantastic shine, this cool Chevy is both handsome and exquisite. Motivation comes courtesy of six liters of GM small block that mix solid motivation with proven reliability. Straight from the factory, the rowdy mill utilizes 364 cubic inches to twist buff 10.9 to 1 compression into an even 400 horsepower and 400 lb./ft. of Oak-shaking torque. That torque flows through a proven 4L60 4-speed, which spins an S10-sourced axle that’s fitted with a posi-traction differential and big, 3.73 gears. At the ends of that drivetrain, a modern suspension makes good use of tubular control arms, a 500 Series steering box and adjustable Air Ride Technologies shocks. At the corners of that suspension, vented disc brakes turn stress-inducing traffic into a relaxing exercise in sightseeing. And all that mechanical goodness rolls on polished Billet Specialties Mags, which spin two 225/50R17 Bridgestone Potenzas in front of two 255/45R18 Bridgestone Potenzas. It’s no wonder the Chevrolet Nomad enjoys such huge popularity, because it just doesn’t get much better than this slick ’56 resto-mod!
