Today marks the fifth day of the fabled countdown to Christmas.
On the fifth day of Christmas my archive gave to thee:
Fine Nomad bling,
Beige French shed,
Tuned Chevy LUV,
and a Park Lane down on the street.
The Corvette Nomad never saw production, however a more conventional version based on the regular Chevrolet Bel Air was made available for 1955. The Nomad was given all the accoutrements of the top trim Bel Air including "Bel Air" badging and the 265 cubic inch small block V8. For 1956 the Nomad's styling was brought in line with the Bel Air and featured more flamboyant chrome side decoration than before. A variety of two-tone paint schemes were offered, including Sierra Gold and Adobe Beige as seen here. Of course, the big chrome Chip Foose rims wouldn't come along for many years. But yes, this is some fine golden bling.
