The pattern and design of the brown leather upholstery is clean and simple. Stainless trim separates the seats from the console, and a speaker grille inspired by ’60s GM cars was custom formed in the upper rear of the console. A cargo cover in the rear acts as a package shelf and makes the interior of the car become one unit.

Vintage Air provides cabin comfort while Alpine and Kenwood provide entertainment. All of the controls and switches are concealed in the console. The end result is an interior that is modern without losing the vintage flavor of the car.

And so, after three years Fred and Nancy Morrison finally had that dream car. The fact that the Nomad never left the premises of Hot Rod Construction in Piedmont, South Carolina, is nothing less than amazing. The car has lived up to every expectation Fred had for his Nomad. As he told us, “Throughout the entire build, I’d come up with a good idea, send it down to Dan, and when he got back to me he had improved the concept every time. It was great fun working with him.” Now that’s a happy owner, and while this car has garnered awards such as the Pro’s Picks at Goodguys, the real reward is when Fred slides behind the wheel and drives the car to a local cruise night.

The center armrest slides back to expose a storage compartment in the top and the controls for the lights, air conditioning, and stereo in the lower compartment. Slide the armrest forward and it is all concealed.

Two more Cadillac bucket seats are found in the back of the car, and the cargo area cover is formed to meet the seat backs. The fit and design of all these panels is nothing short of amazing.

The roll down panel is now covering the stereo while the six-speed shifter mixes gears back in an ’05 Corvette transaxle. Stitchwork on the interior is impressive.

The gauge cluster has been moved to the center of the dash and holds all gauges, including a subtle tachometer just under the speedometer. The Chevy truck influence is apparent in the design.
