As soon as the unique 1955-1957 Chevy Nomad two-door wagon turned a sacred icon amongst those that prize Detroit equipment of the Eisenhower Period, all GM two-door wagons attained a sure status amongst those that take pleasure in cruise nights, car exhibits, Time Out dolls, and the 119,544th repetition of Scorching Rod Lincoln (no, not the gloriously hillbilly unique 1955 Charlie Ryan model, the nonetheless-wonderful-however-now-overplayed 1971 Commander Cody model, which incorrectly refers back to the souped-up Lincoln motor as a V8). I might have thought that a real two-door 1960 Biscayne wagon should have discovered somebody prepared to maintain it on the road, however this car in a northeastern Colorado yard proves me incorrect.

Within the full-sized Chevrolet hierarchy of 1960, the Biscayne was thought-about low cost transportation, the Bel Air was a bit extra flashy, and the luxurious Impala parked on the highest of the pyramid. Every of those trim ranges had a corresponding wagon model, with the Nomad, Kingswood, and Parkwood names happening the Bel Air and Impala wagons; the lowly Biscayne wagon received the Brookwood identify.

There’s some rust, in all probability from sitting outside with lacking glass for many years and filling up with snow each winter. Perhaps the two-door 1959-1960 Chevy wagon restorers are holding out for the Kingswoods.

McCook, Nebraska, lies nearly 220 miles to the east of this car’s remaining parking area and about 650 miles to the west of its birthplace, so it seems that we’re taking a look at a car that spent most or all of its life on the Nice Plains.
