For 15K that seems like a pretty good deal if it isn't a bondo queen. Putting a factory Nomad roof back on that couldn't be any more difficult than replacing the usual lower body panels with the sketchy aftermarket stuff that's out there. The key would be finding an intact Nomad that's rusted to the door handles as a parts car.
Back in 1978, there was a guy in the neighborhood that had a 55 elco. Back then the car was way cool. Car might have actually been a nomad, it was built in Garland TX. by Mr. T's custom paint and body. Tony was pretty good at chopping tops on everything. Tom Renfrow.jpg
Being a child growing up in the late 60s to late 70s, I love those conversions (elco that is, not the shorty cars, lol). Those conversions were just part of the scene back then. I remember coming across one in a junkyard in the late 70s early 80s thinking that it was pretty cool and that it would be a cool rebuild. Was made out of a regular station wagon. Alas, that one got crushed and hauled away.
