I was always under the impression that a Nomad has no back side glass so this would be a 2 dr wagon...Not that it matters much, its still a cool ride.

The S shaped "B" pillar is the biggest give away, nothing to even think about, it's a Nomad.

The first Nomad, the "Waldorf Nomad" had it, as did all 55-57's. The body lines going across the roof from one side to the other is Nomad only (55-57) as well.

Have only saw a couple of 58s they were no hardtops like the earlier ,also a neighbor of mine has a 68,a69 and a 71 nomads they are chevelle bodys the 71 is a 4door ,that would have made a great Trivia Question a 4 dr Nomad ,he has them outside and will not sell them ,how many times have you heard that story ,IM going to fix them one day.
