SEMA 2014: 1955 Chevrolet Nomad Custom

1955-chevy-nomad-sideNothing says hot rodding like a tri-five Chevy! This beautiful blue ’55 Nomad was on display at SEMA 2014, and it really caught my eye. This car was put together by Salvaggio Auto Design in Port Washington, WI.

This is one big, bold, and blue ride. It features a Chevrolet LS engine from Mercury Racing and a Bowler 4L80E automatic transmission.

All of the chrome trim was redone in black nickel by Advanced Plating. Finally, she has a completely restored interior from VOS.

This thing is ready for a road trip with driver comforts such as Classic Instruments gauges and a new A/C system from Vintage Air. The ride quality is vastly improved as the whole thing rides on a Fast Track chassis from The Roadster Shop.1955-chevy-nomad-interiorWe hope to see more great custom cars from Salvaggio Auto Design in the future!
