I got this a couple of days ago. Sounds a bit fishy to me. Tag number is bogus. A Nomad would start with “VC” not “A”. “A” is a bottom of the line 150 Model, not a BelAir. I got some photos too. Blue & white, modified car, Billet wheels and dash. 350/350. If this car is worth $67K then mine is worth $75K, maybe more! -Jerry
I am reaching out for your assistance as I know nothing about these cars.
I have an insured who is claiming a 1955 Chevy Nomad stolen 11/04/2010. VIN #A55S040952
Our policy was only 15 days old, and the vehicle was insured for 67K dollars. (Is this over insured?)
Can you post an alert, and also tell me if the vin is consistent with a 1955. Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
Vehicle was stolen outside a bar in San Pedro California. LAPD #10051948
Thanks in advance Tom. Any questions call or email me.

One of my buddies re-sent me the PDF containing the photos of the ’55 Chevy Nomad that was supposedly stolen. I say “supposedly” because in looking at the photos the Insuree used to insure ther car, the photo of the engine compartment is that of a ’57 Chevy! Yes, a 1957, not a 1955! While the body color is the same tourqoise, all the key ’57 features are there: no vents in the cowl in front of the windshield, ’57 fender wells, battery mounted by the radiator not on firewall, rectangular heater panel on firewall, ’57 style hood hinges, etc. So the original photos of the ’55 used to get the $67,000 of insurance are based one at least one big lie.
I understand that minutes after the Insurance Agent called the Insuree, the Insuree stopped talking and insisted on getting a Lawyer.
It is looking more and more like the entire “theft” is based on an non-existant car. He probably only has a pink slip for a 1955 Chevy, 150 model.

That’s a pretty good story. Sounds fishy is right.
