Chevrolet’s 1955 Nomad is arguably the most beautiful wagon GM ever built. Pontiac lovers will—correctly—note the ’57 Pontiac Safari, but let’s stay on topic here. The already-clean lines of the ’55 Bel Air Sport Coupe were enhanced by adding a long roof with gorgeous styling and a forward-canted B-pillar that matched the slanted rear glass and tailgate, giving the Nomad a clear sense of motion and separating it from the pedestrian two- and four-door wagons available in 150 and 210 guise. It was the more attainable version of the Corvette Nomad shown at GM’s 1953 Motorama, taking the wonderful roof design and applying it to a mainstream car. Yet Chevrolet sold fewer than 8500 Nomads for 1955, which made them a rarity among the popular tri-fives.

This fine custom example was built by Classic Car Studio in St. Louis, Missouri, for Art Boze, who had a vision for hot rod Nomad that added plenty of performance to the Nomad’s fantastic looks. Starting with a sun-baked and dinged-up but otherwise complete Arizona car, the team at CCS replaced the wagon’s floorboards and gave it room for a tough 4L80E transmission. The electronically-controlled overdrive is the successor to the venerable Turbo 400 and was used in luxury cars and heavy duty trucks alike. Its brawn is necessary, as Boze chose a 509-cubic-inch big-block from Shafiroff Racing to power his hot wagon.

A custom leather interior features diamond-stitched low-back buckets for four occupants and matches the coppery metallic finish used on the wheels and the roof; the rest of the body was finished in an understated metallic green. No factory 1955 Chevy chassis would have been up to the task of handling such a robust powerplant, so a Roadster Shop REVO chassis was chosen. Its 4x4-inch main chassis rails are far stronger than the original frame and its suspension, with a four-link in the rear and coilovers all around, offers a much more modern driving experience.
