1956 Chevy Nomad (1/25) (fs)

First Issue, 1997, from modern era tooling. While AMT and Revell had produced 1955 and 1957 Nomads respectively, this was the first '56, and coming from modern era tooling with more authentic chassis and engine set-ups, this kit quickly became a staple of all modelers who were interested in the era.

The Chevrolet Nomad was a station wagon model made off and on from 1955 to 1972, and as a Chevy Van trim package in the late 1970's and early 1980's, produced by Chevrolet. The Nomad is best remembered in its Tri-Five, two-door 195557 form, and was considered a halo model during its three-year production as a two-door station wagon. The name nomad (Greek: νομάς, nomas, plural νομάδες, nomades; means someone who is roaming about for pasture, or pastoral tribe) is a member of a community of people who live in different locations, moving from one place to another.

The two-door Nomad differed from other station wagons of the era by having unique styling more reminiscent of a hardtop sedan than that of a standard station wagon. Chevrolet shared this body with its sister Pontiac, which marketed their version as the Pontiac Safari. The Nomad's unique design had its roots in a General Motors Motorama show car of the same name that was shared with the Corvette, Pontiac Bonneville Special, and the Oldsmobile F-88. The Concept was introduced at the GM Motorama in 1954 as one of Head Stylist Harley Earl's "dream cars". It followed the introduction in 1950 of the Ford Country Squire two door station wagon. GM approved production of the vehicle if the design could be transferred to its standard model, because top GM brass felt that they could sell more models if it were attached to the popular Bel Air model. In fact, following the product debut in 1955, it was not uncommon for the car to be referred to as the Chevy "Bel Air Nomad".
