Car Description

1957 Chevrolet Nomad


"Family Engineered" was the buzzword for the 1957 Chevrolet Belair 2-Door Wagon. Holding all the cargo you will need, even a sleeping fold down option so you can save on the Motor Inn fee. Able to navigate the smoothest roads or a backwoods trail, your family could literally go anywhere. All in style with the top of the line Bel Air in the pinnacle year of the Tri-Five craze, the 1957 Chevrolet 2-Door Nomad Wagon.


For consignment, an earlier restoration job, performed by an amateur mechanic body man and painter. She will need some work to bring her back to perfect, but all panels are there, and rust free, as are all the trimmings. Nice rounded panoramic glass for all the passengers to see the sites, and the beautifully swept back "B" pillar just behind the front doors, signifying it is a Bel AIr. A top of the line cruiser, vacation go to car, for consignment here at Classic Auto Mall.


Exterior

Body panels show nicely, however upon close inspection, you will see some waves, body filler and paint with inclusions and drips. Some orange peel, and slight light rust bubbling can also be picked out randomly throughout. Trim is bright and shiny and is all there. Glass is clean, clear, and lighting is same condition throughout. The swoop spear rear panel is clear and stainless with the Bel Air badging in grandmother's handwriting in gold along with a Chevrolet badge. The rear of the car gets it just right for the '57 with the chrome trimmings topping off the rear quarters, and melting into the rear taillight, gas filler, backup light, and in bumper exhaust. For this Nomad, nice vertical chrome trimmings are on the gate, and the rear glass can open on top for easy access for all that luggage. Dog dish wheel covers nicely chromed cover body matching (red/orange) wheels wrapped in wide whites all around.


Interior

A swing of the 2 doors and we are greeted with red and gray vinyl covering for the panel with nicely preserved handles and cranks, and more swoop spear trimmings delineating the two colors. Vinyl is slightly wavy on these panels. Placing ourselves inside, we note that a vinyl bench upfront has been recolored from gray to red, showing some scratch off of the red. A matching rear bench showing some slight wear is similar in pattern to the front bench. A painted metal dash has large round metal bezels for the gauges, some tubular warning lights lining the top and a strip of stainless with black square pattern on it running the length of the dash housing the knobs for lights, wipers, ignition and the radio. Below is another red painted panel which houses the heater and airflow sliders, ashtray, and glovebox. An original steering wheel shows some chipping of the red paint but retains its shine on the horn and trimmed center. Nice black carpet floods the floors, and above a tight headliner is adorned with some thin trim arches between the seams, presenting in gray.


Drivetrain

Under the hood is a clean engine bay with a nicely restored orange painted block 283ci V8 not original to this car. A single 4-barrel Carter carburetor is atop and a 2-speed Powerglide automatic is on back. 3.36 gears are reserved for this rear axle.


Undercarriage

All clean and black underneath, with what could be new floorpans, a nicely painted frame showing some underlying surface rust, and black and shiny suspension parts. The engine is drip free, and the front independent with coil springs suspension and rear leaf spring suspension is solid. Drum brakes are all around.


Drive-Ability

It started right up and idled a bit rough with seemingly only 7 of 8 cylinders operational. Off to the test track where it struggled to provide power even with the gas pedal to the floor. Several gauges and switches were inop, such as radio, wipers, heater blower, speedo and odometer, temp gauges, and turn signals only working with headlights that work in high beam mode only.


With some newer upgraded mechanicals and finicky electrics, this will comes to us in Nomad Bel Air trim, which not many were produced in 1957, so it is somewhat rare. It will need work to get it back to snuff, but the basics are all there with some extra trim in the back that will come along for the ride upon your purchase. Here is an entry into the least found last Tri-Five model in Bel Air high end trim, two door, carbureted engine, nice design wagon awaiting the next camping trip, or just turning heads on main street.
