» The History

The Chevrolet Nomad was a station wagon model made off and on from 1955 to 1972, and a Chevy Van trim package in the late 1970s and early 1980s, produced by the Chevrolet Division of General Motors. The Nomad is best remembered in its two-door 195557 form, and was considered a halo model during its three-year production as a two-door station wagon.

1957 V-8 engine displacement grew to 283 cubic inches (4,638cc) from 265 in 1957, with the "Super Turbo Fire V8" option producing 283 horsepower (211kW). These so-called "fuelie" cars are quite rare, since most Bel Airs were fitted with carburation. While considered to be a milestone vehicle design, General Motors discontinued the original Nomad Sport Wagon at the end of the 1957 model year due to low sales and the introduction of a new body for 1958.
