    A parts car would help a lot, and as mentioned, new 1/4s are available.

    Safaris have even more chrome and stainless to 'redo' than do Nomads. Someone mentioned the 'Canadian' version of the Pontiac wagon, which apparently has the same wheelbase as the Nomad (and some of the Pontiacs share even more of the looks of the chevy wagons), which might a very realistic idea...?

    Yep, I think that is my answer also. They are real fine looking cars. Sell it to someone with a rusted out Safari so they can put it on an original frame and they will have the chrome and stuff to go with it.
