1954 Chevrolet Corvette Nomad

1954 Chevrolet Corvette Nomad

Concept: As before with the 1954 Chevrolet Corvette Corvair post. This one is just a 4-door Nomad variant.

Details: 2015 FWD 2015 Cadillac XTS engine/gearbox mounted in the rear. More affordable and less space required to install it — thus the addition of rear seats and doors. Front suspension would be Porsche 964 and the front seat / front axle is same layout dimensions as shown. One can buy a replica Corvette bodywork from several retailers. A new chassis would be required to mate the Cadillac drivetrain and the Porsche front — but both are essentially unmodified. Radiator / oil cooler / AirCon cooler are at the front behind the factory grille opening and venting at the base of the windshield or in the wheelwell itself. Only major coachwork to create is the roof and fastest way is to find an old Nomad and get permission to splash the roof panel itself and narrow as needed. Window openings? Use Nomad glass in rear curved section. Flat glass in forward panel and for the opening doors. Actually making the trim around the windows, tailgate and more is the biggest PITA in building this.
