Like Wagon Crazy said, pictures would be very helpful, although looking at something on-line is not like actually kicking the tires and certainly not for a project car. I also agree with confirming a valid VIN for starters. You already stated the car isn't totally complete, but what about all of the interior and exterior stainless and chrome pieces? There is about a mile of chrome and stainless on a Nomad, some of which isn't reproduced, and buying and/or refurbishing it can run into a lot of money quickly so make sure you factor that into a purchase price.

Regarding fair market value, it can be all over the place, but there are two project Nomads on e-Bay right now that might give you some insight. A '55 in progress with quite a bit already done, including a new SBC engine, and quite a ways to go. Current bid is $8K with a Buy It Now of $27.5K. There is a '57 that looks complete although very rough and it will run but barely with an asking price of $7.9K. And in January and February a guy ran an ad in the Nomad Post for a '57 bare California shell and rolling frame for $15K. He had owned it since the '70's and described it as having no rust or crashes, mint doors and tailgate, and as having "Platinum" potential. That ad ran two months and disappeared, but I don't know if he sold it or not. Sorry for the long post, but wanted to give you some examples of current project cars that are out there to see if your candidate would fit somewhere in this group. If you can find a way to save another Nomad that would be great, and good luck!
