A well-optioned wagon, this Nomad also features a seldom ordered option of the time, air conditioning. Coined as All Weather Air Conditioning, this option would set you back $473.00.Open the door to 1958, this is the original interior and an abosulte time capsule. Garage kept for life, the interior certainly reflects this.  The original Medium Gold Cloth / Medium Gold Imitation Leather seating is in excellent condition front to back.

The dash displays all original instruments along with the $95.00 optional pushbutton radio which still works. The original optional ($16.50) padded dash is also intact and showing its age, however there are no cracks.  

Seldom to we come across an original car as well-preserved as this '58 Chevrolet Nomad Wagon. 

 All Chevrolet Wagon's wore single tail lights in 1958. They were specially designed quarter panels to accommodate the rear tailgate. 

Under the hood is the optional Turbo Thrust V8 engine. This $60.00 option gave you 348 cubic inches, a 4bbl. carburetor, and 250 horsepower. This engine is mated with the $191.00 optioned Powerglide 2-Speed Automatic Transmission. This car also features rare factory air conditioning. This is a verified option thanks to the original invoice. It set the buyer back a substantial $473.00. Texas Classic Cars of Dallas' auto repair facilities are in the process of making necessary repairs to the air conditioning. 

The engine pad displays the stamping of T522G, confirming this to be the correct 250 horsepower Turbo Fire V8.

 Further inspection of the engine compartment will confirm original and detailed sheetmetal throughout. The inner fenders, core support, and firewall is in excellent, preserved condition. The firewall also displays the original identification plate.

The undercarriage is original and excellent, displaying the factory flooring and framework throughout. The exhaust system has been replaced from the manifolds back. Much of the original red oxide primer is in excellent condition on the flooring. 

The wagon left plenty of room for passengers. The rear area is in excellent condition throughout. The tailgate and rear glass operate correctly. Vintage Oklahoma stickers are still in place.

 When was the last time you saw this character? Who is this little OSU rootin' cowpoke? All of the glass is in good condition throughout this wagon. The window mechanisms operate correctly as well.The optional pushbutton AM radio features a front & rear speaker.

 These original stickers are beautifully preserved. We also have a classic '58 Oklahoma license plate included with the car. 

Have a look at this original door service tag, left alone for decades. One of the very few long distance trips our Nomad took was one family vacation to California. The only other journey was to the east coast to see New York and Boston.  

The rear seating folds down to make for handy storage when the kids are not in tow. 

Another unique feature of this wagon are these specially crafted window screens. These were built decades ago by the 2nd owner to help keep the kids cool. 

Close inspection of the body will confirm all original sheetmetal throughout. This is a true survivor.

 All of the brightwork is original and in exceptional condition as well.

The door panels are in excellent condition and of course, all original. 

The door undersides are original and solid. This car has been kept in dry climate conditions from day one and it reflects throughout.

Many of our photos of this classic were taken at the Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum, located only minutes from our showroom.
