Everything's right about that wagon, except the front drum brakes.

I hate rat rods, but I really like that one! But, that isn't a Nomad, is it? The tilt in the door frame has me wondering.

Looks to me like it was a four door wagon with the back door upper frame moved forward to the windshield pillar. The sheet metal that is under/ahead of the cowl area looks like it could be the former front door skin.

Thanks for the reply, and the observations! Makes sense.

EVERY PANEL on that drag car looks modified to some degree.

Belair-o, like you, I am not a big fan of "rat rods" but this one has a certain look that is appealing.

I agree with you, Jalapeno, there is an incredible amount of thought and work that went into that car, and as you say, it (to me), looks right.

I find myself wondering, how does he keeps it cool - where is the radiator?

A nomad door would be a hardtop, not a sedan. I just thought it looked interesting and provided a way to poke wagon crazy with a stick. Hope to see his mythical, Harry Potter, car in person. Someday.
I don't think of them as Nomad guys, as much as guys who gave up on finding a sedan delivery and settled. ;b

Stick poke acknowledged Steve. FWIW, I do have thousands of dollars in newly rechromed bumpers on it now...

Wiring is about 80% complete, and the exhaust system is in the planning/part-buying stages.

That wasn't a Nomad. Looks to have been a 4 door wagon.
