I bought a 56 Nomad rolling chassis with boxes & boxes of chrome (35 years of collecting parts). I am wondering if there is a book or list with pics identifying all the chrome. so I know what I have, as well what I still need. I have many duplicates of some and I know I am still missing many.

Based on your post, your best bet is to post pics.

Yes pictures are always better, but that is a lot of them, I was hoping there was a manual showing all to make it easier, (but who said this would be easy). As well that will only tell me what I have, not what I still need.

It is mainly the windows & interior chrome I need help identifying.

Paid my membership, just waiting so I am allowed to add pictures now.

You may want to try the "Nomads" forum on this site.

The front window & area are very much the same for all models, but the rear area is specific to Nomad.
so I thought it never hurts to ask everyone if they know of a list or other to help identify. Here is a small sample of what I have, will need to wait for individual pics, too cold out to play right now.

Wow, that reminds me of mine when I bought it. I went to a lot of car shows and took a lot of pictures of every nomad I could. that helped me a lot.

Best bet order a parts catalog as they have a diagram showing parts placement. Sorry, but the online guys only show parts.

I guess that means a road trip to the US. I think there is only a handful of Nomads (let alone 56 Nomads) in all of Canada, so it is hard to do up here.

would you know which parts book to look for?
There is so much literature on the Tri 5 chevy's but I have not seen many "parts books".
