I am wondering how the stainless trim on the liftgate window is attached? This is actually for my 58 Buick wagon but I think the Nomads would have a simliar clip. Thoughts? MH

The 55-57 Nomad lift gate is 1 piece cast from pot metal and then chromed, the interior pieces are bolted on.

Nomad Jack: Thanks for the insight. I'll keep searching for these darn clips. Cheers. Michael.

nothing will work off a nomad liftgate for the buick wagon liftgates. I almost certain as we specialize in the nomad liftgate straightening/restoration and I own a 57 oldsmobile fiesta wagon. I just took the trim off the fiesta to polish and know exactly what you are referring to. it was a real headache to attach because most are rusty.

good luck with your search. if you find a source let me know! thank you

That's too bad. I was able to save a partial clip so maybe we'll just have to get them made. The Buick, and I think the Olds, take 22 clips. I know of at least six others who are still searching. Any ideas on a fabricator for these things? Cheers. Michael.

I can give it a try. If you have a picture please post it so I can see what it looks like. If you have one that is in pretty good condition I bet I can make some. I have 45 years in the precision fabricating business.

I cam PM you a sketch I made of the one I was able to piece together (two bits). I can't figure out how to post it here though. Sigh. The curled bit fits in the trim itself and then the long piece is pushed into a receiver on the tailgate itself. If you are still interested, PM me your address and I'll try and tape it together and send it to you. I need 22 of them and there are at least 3-6 others out there who would love to have some new ones as well. Thoughts? Cheers. Michel.
