With several intermittent runs between 1955 and 1972, the Chevy Nomad was one of the first popular station wagons in existence, and was powerful for families who wanted to travel the highways of America in style. Three generations of Nomads eventually made their way to Chevrolet dealer showrooms The 1955-57 run featured a two-door vehicle with two bench seats driven by a 265-cubic inch, 4.3-liter V8 engine for the first two years and a 283-ci, 4.6-liter V8 in the form of a Super Turbo Fore V8 engine for 1957. For one year, 1958 the Nomad replaced the Bel-Air station wagon and was a four-door model with seating for five. From 1959 to 1961, the Nomad moved to the Impala model to become a six-passenger vehicle. The 1959 model has two doors and the succeeding models have four doors. The engine choice from 1957 to 1961 remained the 4.3-liter V8 and the 4.6-liter V8 engines. Chevrolet dropped the Nomad until 1968 when the automaker rebadged the Chevelle station wagon with the Nomad name. The horsepower ranges for the third-generation run ranged from 140 to 200 hp. Standard Chevy color schemes were available for all Nomads.
