I would never use these parts for a 55 Nomad. I would attempt to restore this first. Would hardtop quarters be adaptable? What is it worth in parts?

Keep in mind that the hardtop quarters don't even fit a hardtop correctly. With that in mind you still need the upper section of the Nomad quarters since they are quite a bit different than the hardtop. As far as value I couldn't begin to guess without seeing many more and much better pictures.

The guy who has this car had a set of NOS quarters when he started this job, but they "came up missing" so he gave up on it. 25+ years ago.

Think of the quarters this way. From the front of the quarter stainless and above the B/A insert to the tail fin, nothing from a hardtop, convertible or sedan are the same. You may be able to locate a pair of USED Full Quarters from a 57 2 dr wagon (any model but 210 or B/A are best) and make them work. Even then, some of the attaching points at the top are unique to the NOMAD. Those unique points are MISSING ON THE NOMAD

Hopefully you have just this one project and lots of time. It will be a challenge but rewarding as it goes along . Missing parts are your biggest obstacle. Only a few years ago I let go of my 57 Nomad project that was a complete car needing the usual patches for 8500. I feel there are project cars out there and eventually they show up in family estates. Many times health issues force dream cars to be sold. I hope you have no regrets diving into such a project . However I do commend you for saving another Nomad.
