Two-door “Nomad” Chevrolet stations wagons from the mid-1950s are much cherished by car collectors, but that “Tri-5” era wasn’t the end of production for such vehicles. Consider the Pick of the Day, a two-door 1960 Chevrolet Brookwood station wagon being offered for sale on ClassicCars.com by a private owner in Walnut Creek, California.

The seller acquired the wagon in 2017 from its previous owner, who had it since 1982, the ad says, noting that the previous owner reported the wagon having been restored around 2008. 

The car apparently has lived its entire life in California, being built at the GM assembly plant in Los Angeles and first owned by a musician who used it to carry instruments to rehearsals. 

The seller reports the station wagon to be in excellent condition except for small paint cracks on the hood. 

“All chrome in perfect shape,” the seller reports, adding that the inline 6-cylinder engine is “perfectly working, instantly starting without any problem.” 

Ditto on the 3-speed transmission.

The 235cid inline 6-cylinder engine was rated at 135 horsepower when new.

“Interior in good shape, dash is original, leather seats seems to be reupholstered… rear window is electric and coming smoothly up and down,” the ad says.

The car shows 124,000 miles on its odometer, reportedly has no rust and has been garage kept at least since owned by the seller, who is asking $28,000.

The 1960 Chevrolet Brookwood station wagon was based on the entry-level Biscayne sedan. Only 14,663 2-door station wagons were produced during the 1960s model year, primarily outfitted with Impala-based trim.

  1. Charlie- in the 1960s & 1970s vehicle odometers would only display 99,999 miles before “ rolling over “ to zeros once again . Apparently the owner knows the odometer has rolled over & now displays 24,000 miles so he just added the previous 100K to it.
