YAK Car Pic of the Day

61 chev nomad wgn wht nwstd copy

          Judging from the low stance, not to mention the wheels and tires, of this 1961 Chevy Nomad station wagon, I’d say there’s something under the hood other than the 235.5 CID, 135-hp Hi-Thrift six-cylinder engine which was in my Mother’s very similar-looking but cheaper ’61 Parkwood. Then again, this white wagon could be all show and no go, sitting in the lot of a shop in Newstead. Sure brought back some memories! Below we see Fred MacMurray piloting another ’61 Nomad, the Douglas family chariot which was used during the first season of My Three Sons.
