With its striking color combination and original condition, this 1960 Chevy Nomad found at Hemmings with an asking price of $18,000 is a desirable wagon find. Sure it has rough spots, some rust, faded paint in spots and a dirty engine compartment but the fact that it is basically 100% original gives this car a lot of character. The two-tone deep blue and white exterior matched with the checkered red and white interior actually works very well.
The owner describes the 56,000 mile Nomad as having original paint, chrome and stainless. The interior is original and in excellent condition with the back seat still covered in original plastic. All the doors including the tailgate are properly aligned and open and close perfectly. The engine runs well despite old plugs and wires. A new exhaust system as well as new tires are needed.
This car could be restored to its original glory, but for me this is the kind of car best left as is.
