1955 Chevrolet Nomad "55 MAD"

This 1955 Chevy Nomad was brought into the shop with the inside of the car packed with boxes of parts. The owner had acquired it from a family member after his brother passed away. With dreams of finishing his brother's creation we started by disassembling and inspecting the whole car as we had no real history on what was done and what needed to be completed. The body was stripped, straightened and repainted in the same custom color that had been picked by the owner's brother. The drive train was pretty simple with a mild 350/ 350 turbo combo and the original 10 bolt with 3.73 gears. 4 wheel disc brakes were added and Vintage Air system installed. The steering was updated with a 605 conversion adding modern power steering. The suspension was replaced with a full air ride system from Ridetek for the ultimate in smooth ride and awesome handling capabilities. A mildly customized interior consisting of perforated black and white leather was installed. Sitting on chrome 18 and 20 inch wheels with that just right hot rod rake, this car has the look of a life size hot wheels car and will surely be a family treasure as well as a head turner.
