Classic Nomad (1970)
 


The Classic Nomad is based on the 1955 Chevrolet Nomad,  part of Chevy’s top-line BelAir series.



Larry Wood designed the Classic Nomad, keeping it as close to the original as possible, except for
adding the sunroof and hood scoops.



The Classic Nomad debuted in 1970 and was produced for about two years.  It was made in the
US only.  All Classic Nomad's have clear windows, a white interior and cap-style wheels; the rear
wheels being larger then the front.




The chassis is held in place with one flat head 'rivet' on the front and a ‘hook’ in the rear.



Staying true to the Corvette-based evolution of the 55 Nomad,  Larry Wood equipped the Classic
Nomad with a V-8 engine.





It is not uncommon to find the Classic Nomad decorated with flower decals!




The Nomad can found in an array of spectraflame colors, with green having the most variations.



The Classic Nomad was re-issued in 1973 as the "Alive '55".  It has re-appeared in the Hot Wheels
line since then as the "'55 Nomad".
