1978 Chevy nomad vans out there?

Asked by Jan 04, 2011 at 03:34 PM about the Chevrolet Nomad

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I've got a 78 chevy nomad G20 van and was wondering how many were built. It has no rust, original paint, everything works fine with 86k original miles on it. I can't find it listed anywhere. I am debating trading it for something with better mileage but I have no idea of what it's worth or how rare it is. Any help would be great. It's the buckskin and brown 2 tone. The nomad badges are pretty cool.

After more searching, the results were nil. I found one in Roanoke for sale. Not much info and was pretty rusted out and it also had a 6 cylinder where mine has a 350. Small mention a few places but nothing to go on. It looks like it is a pretty rare beast if nobody has anything listed on the internet about it. Any ideas from the Chevy crowd about where to search would be appreciated. Only 2 on the internet seems odd

I have a 1978 Chevy Nomad Van also. I drove vans in my younger years and my buddy's dad liked them and bought this one new in '78. I told him if he ever sold it to let me know. I bought it from him in 2003. I still have it and love it. It is a medium brown metal flake. 110,000 miles. We live in Michigan so he never drove it in the winter to let the salt get at it. The salt eroded my 1971 and 1976 vans back in the day.

I haven't had the need to look for parts. I suppose you would look on line at salvage yards for common parts. There are also specialty places on line you can google to get specialty parts such as carpet etc.

My Chevy Nomad van is a 1980. It was my fathers van that he bought new. It's like the one listed on Barrett Jackson, but with different wheels and mirrors. It has the 350cid engine and 400 tranny. After market A/C.
