Retooled Versions

After being out of the line-up for 21 years the '55 Chevy Nomad was retooled for the 1991 California Customs series. It was named either the '55 Nomad or Classic Nomad depending on what series it was released in. The hood was cast shut in 1998.

For the 2018 release, the Nomad was retooled again. The body & front fascia was given an overhaul. The hood scoops are now more prominent.

The retooled '55 Nomad has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
