Corvette Nomad Kit Car

By Jen Dunnaway

What’s with the irrepressible impulse to dream up wagon versions of the Corvette? There’ve been concept Corvette wagons as long as there’ve been Corvettes, and while most of them end up being hideous franken-wagons, this longroof C1 looks like it was truly meant to be. That’s because it’s modeled upon the original Motorama Corvette Nomad that Chevy showed off at Detroit in 1954. This updated version, by Superior 54, has a custom Art Morrison frame and C5 Corvette suspension front and rear. But I read through the ad twice and couldn’t find any mention of an engine. Come on, at $195K for the turn-key version, they better at least be throwing in an LS1. Via duPont Registry.
