1957 Chevrolet Nomad - Colonial Cream/Onyx Black In real life the Chevrolet Nomad, classed as a two-door sport wagon, had a relatively short production period, being introduced as a concept car in 1954 with full blown production a year later. The Oxford model, of which this is the seventh release, is based on the second generation vehicle which Chevrolet (General Motors) launched in 1957 when it became more akin to the Chevrolet Bel Air, with long tail fins featuring the Bel Air name, a redesigned dashboard and front fascia and arguably more muted colour schemes. The two-tone option remained prevalent both inside and out. Performance wise, the car sported a 4.3L V8 engine but was considered one of the most expensive Chevrolet cars around at the time at $2571, so its sales figures proved very disappointing. It merged completely with the Bel Air name in 1958. Our latest colour scheme on the 1:87 scale Nomad is a delicate pale yellow with black roof and black interior, definitely a little more conservative than the brilliant reds, blues and hot rod designs of previous releases. The whitewall tyres also feature a fine yellow rim with red wheel centre boss. The remaining trim is chrome and black with a strip of chrome across the centre of the radiator grille carrying the signature Chevrolet badge.
