Hot Wheels Chevy Nomad

The 1970-71 redline version of the Chevy Nomad manufactured by Hot Wheels was based on the 1955 Chevrolet Nomad station wagon which was produced – off and on – between 1955 to 1972. [1]   Interestingly, the full-size car was produced with only two-doors – and, as you can see Hot Wheels carried this design feature through to their production. What made the ‘real’ 1955 Chevrolet Nomad more appealing was the fact that the design had more features of a hard-top sedan than a station wagon.

The Hot Wheels Nomad #6404 featured here was manufactured in 1970 in the USA. It came in twelve (12) different colors:

  • Metallic Aqua
  • Metallic Blue
  • Metallic Gold
  • Metallic Green
  • Metallic Light Green
  • Metallic Magenta
  • Metallic Olive
  • Metallic Orange
  • Metallic Pink
  • Metallic Purple
  • Metallic Red
  • Metallic Yellow

The Hot Wheels car featured here has the following:

  • Metallic purple in color
  • Opening hood
  • Metal engine
  • Metal chassis
  • Red striped wheels
  • Clear plastic windows & sun roof
  • White plastic interior

The popularity of this car resulted in Mattel re-cycling the casting for similar cars including :

#6968 Alive ’55 in 1973  (Note: Came in 11 different colors; all enamel paint)

#5743 Classic Nomad in 1993 (Note: A variety of different colors and paint styles)
