1992 Chevy Caprice ‘Nomad’ Up For Sale Online9
The Chevy Nomad nameplate was last used over 20 years on a variant of the popular G-Series utility van, but seeing as it was around in one form or another from the mid-1950s all the way until the mid-1980s, the Nomad name remains fresh in the minds of many American car enthusiasts. This custom Chevy Caprice Nomad recreation, which is currently for sale on eBay, serves as a great example of the level of enthusiasm that remains for the original Bowtie-badged wagon.
According to the listing, this custom 1992 Chevy Caprice is the work of a coachbuilder in California and is officially called the ‘Majestic Nomad.’ It incorporates replica rear quarter panels and hood spears, and a replica rear bumper, from the iconic 1957 Chevy Nomad, but retains the font doors and front fascia from the 1992 Chevy Caprice. The result is an awkward-looking mishmash of GM products, but at least the beloved B-body Caprice donor car retains its dependability and practicality with this conversion. The original leather interior remains, as does the factory 5.0L V8 engine and four-speed automatic transmission. This was a show car that was driven sparingly, with the odometer currently displaying just over 64,000 miles.
The eBay listing has attracted a single bid of $10,000 as of this writing, which is quite a high opening bid for an obscure custom car such as this. The vehicle is offered as-is and does not come with a warranty, which was probably obvious to most readers,. Transportation is also the responsibility of the buyer, so the winning bidder will have to head out to West Bend, Wisconsin to pick up the car. Check out the listing at this link for some additional information and photos before the gavel falls on the online auction later this week.

Fan of the ’57 Nomad and owned a last gen wagon, but this is hard to look at.
Yeah the back end looks good but the side looks like it’s been glued on by a high school project. Maybe if it was based on a 1960s era Nomad it would blend in a little better but tail fins and 1990s together no just no.
This is an opportunity for the Ghostbusters to update their vehicle. A new paint scheme and a few modifications and they’re ready to go.
Why? Sometimes even “because you can” should be left alone…
i fine its cute wish it presently existed as a modern car model for 2022 and beyond big fan of the nomad and caprice but majestically cute and irresistible for an invention and easy to look at
Like the front end and the rear, can’t say I like the side view.
I’m guessing they’re selling it because it’s too big to flush
