what years did chevy have the nomad
The Nomad was a 2 door station wagon model made off and on from 1955 to 1972. It was also part of a Chevy Van trim package in the late 1970s and early 1980s. You might remember it better as the two-door car, made from 1955 to 1957. To answer your question about it being a Chevelle model: Between 1968 and 1972 the names Nomad and Nomad Custom were applied to the lowest-priced Chevelle four-door station wagon model. As for the use of the Nomad name: the last Nomad station wagon ended with the end of the first-generation Chevelle at the end of the 1972 model year. But in the late 70s/early 80s, the name returned again on a trim package for the full size Chevrolet Van.
The Nomadname also found its way into the Vega line-up of wagons in 1976. I believe the next year, 1977, is when the Nomad name moved to a van. I have owned a 1968 Chevelle Nomad Custom stationwagon and a 1977 Chevy Nomad van over the years.
