Hi I own a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air nomad one of the original 317 cars I'm at the final stage of restoration. I've had the car since 1988 I did a painstaking body off frame factory original restoration

Welcome to trifive.com... :) Does your handle indicate you are from British Columbia (Canada?). or ? maybe BC stands for 'Boise Cascade'? or Boston College? or BrunswickCorp? or ??? inquiring minds would love to know.. :)

:) Cleveland plant pretty much hand assembled all Nomads from '55 thru '57, as they never totally addressed some of the problems associated with the Nomad roof lines and glass/leakage issues. Early '55's (I don't know the number of units) had a string of changes, but most/all of those applied to all models, not just Nomads, and I suspect most of those changes occurred in the assembly plants, not the Fisher plants...

BCDOTCOM: Where did you find your information on the first 317 Nomad units being hand assembled? Can you provide a reference? and What is the BDY number for your car?

Back in the late '80s I used to belong to the national nomad Club that's where I learned about the 317 and assembled cars the body number is number 7
