    Post Hello from a 57 Nomad builder

    First time post to any forum. I'm in the very slow process of building a 57 Nomad. Presently have the car in reconstruction. I retired from an electric utility 5 years ago and have been building a shop for the project. The Nomad has a ZZ4 with Tuned Port Injection (mass air flow type) installed, a Borg Warner T56 six speed and a Franklin 4:86 lightweight aluminum quick change rear end with a Detroit Locker (gear set yields a 3.55 final rear end drive). Other equipment include PW, PS, A/C and power disc breaks at all 4 corners. The thread on installation of the sliding windows is what brought me to the forum. So far everything I've seen has been extremely helpful.

    Welcome to TrifiveChevys.com! Look forward to hearing more about your build. Sounds like a great powertrain you are putting together for your car. Should run well.

    Happy Motoring,
