If this old Nomad listed on eBay was any other car, it might not be worth restoring but these have been desirable since the 1960s and are easily six figure cars when restored. There aren’t many of these Nomads left unmolested and unloved, so thanks to “PS Photog” for the tip on this Nomad. It has been sitting for over 20 years and will need lots of work. Bidding is over $15,ooo with the reserve not met. The original engine and transmission are long gone and there’s rust in the usual areas and in the roof. The trim appears very complete though and much of the interior is intact.
The interior looks better that you might expect. The upholstery is a mess, but the dash is complete and the door panels look OK. A stock steering wheel is easily sourced.
It looks like the interior is mostly complete and in decent shape.
There is no information provided on the engine except it’s not the original.
This Nomad will possibly be purchased by someone with deep pockets and restored into a great show car. However, parts are easily available and if the rust is confined to just the floors and the roof, one might dream of a project more of us could afford. I would repair the roof, patch the floors, add a modern drivetrain, upgrade the brakes and suspension and do the upholstery. Then repaint the top white and polish the paint a bit and enjoy the car while it appreciates. That shouldn’t eat up too much of my retirement savings, right?
