1955 CHEVROLET NOMAD CUSTOM WAGON "GONE MAD"
Built over a period of two years, this 1955 Chevy Sedan Delivery Resto-Mod has been featured at SEMA, graced the front cover of Super Chevy magazine, was featured in the NSRA Builders' Showcase, was a Street Rodder Top 100 selection, and was a Top 5 pick at the Tri Five Nationals. “Gone Mad” is powered by an all-aluminum Shafiroff 509ci V8 engine with custom stainless headers and 3-inch stainless exhaust. Power is handled by a Bowler 4L80E 4-speed automatic transmission with a Ford 9-inch rear end and Truetrac posi-traction gears. Gone Mad features a Roadster Shop Revo chassis with rack & pinion steering, four-link setup and Wilwood brakes. This Chevrolet was finished in Glasurit paint, which is buried under five coats of wet-sanded clear. Both the engine and undercarriage feature custom-made, one-off panels finished in the body color. The custom interior was built to resemble a cigar lounge and used over 10 hides of Relicate leather to cover hand-fabricated panels. Look up and you’ll see a one-piece headliner airbrushed in wood grain. This custom Chevy rides on Billet Specialties wheels, 18x8” front and 20x12” rear.
