Yep - except it did have windows instead of panels on the back.

That's a 1957 150 Sedan Delivery I beleive. The 210 models have the traditional 2 tone fin detail 57's are known for. Belairs had the aluminum inset. The 210 handy man was a 2door, had windows and a back seat, I think the 150 was the same but withour the rear seat. Not 100% though.

I had one. It was exactly the same as the artists concept. Color, even the hub caps. I put bucket seats in it and it was great on date nights. Inline six, 3 speed on the tree, what else could you ask for.

Bench seats, cuz buckets are so hard to neck in...OTOH, the lack of rear windows would more than make up for the bucket seats...
What separated the "Handyman" from the vaunted Nomads aside from the ribbed roof and TG?
Googling in another tab...That's tougher with buckets too...

OK. Seems the B and C pillars and the trim between the 2 back windows are angled all parallel in the Nomad, and the B pillar and intermediate window trim are vertical in the Handyman wagon. I'd still have one of those Handyman or PD vehicles! 55 Panel Delivery...327, or even a 283. I still like classic smallblocks.

For cooking, lower and slower. For spices, mo' hotter, mo' better. Habaneros rule!

Yes, but between the buckets was the opening to the entire back. Which was completely open. The back compartment or deck was better for necking. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I think you are right. Mine had back windows, 2 door, and a back fold down seat. It did have limited trim - not as much as Bel-Airs. My dad was second owner and when he got it it was all white with the black/grey checker type interior, 3 on the tree. After a few years we dropped in a 350/350 and made it automatic. The best was when we would go get gas at a full service station and watch the attendant run all around the car searching for the gas cap!!

A bit of a Bump here, but decided to break out my very first car... 1966 fastback Mustang with little ole 289.  I bought it for a whole $1000.00 in Arkansas where we were living for a while and have kept it ever since...........  Now... my 17 year old son has never seen this car move!! It has been parked on jackstands in our last two house garages for 19 years!!!

So, he has expressed interest in automotive career sooooooooooo....time for some learnin'. (Plus I need something to drive, as he stole my Nissan!!)

We rolled it out and dusted off. Now complete rebuild of mechanical items will commence...

As we always say BK...."before kids"....things just seem to matter more than first car for a while..... :) Now get to enjoy both eh!?!?

Besides it made a great shelving unit in the garage (just ask the wife!!).

It should be fun to work with Taylor on this little project....

I wouldn't have had the will power to walk past that thing in the garage all that time without putting on the road. I hope you at least sat in the drivers seat and made vroom vroom noises!  :D
