Nash Ambassador
By Greg Warner

Classic Car Articles by Greg Warner Just how do you suppose the historically famous Italian company, Pininfarina, ever became involved in the styling designs of the 1950's Nash automobiles? I would have very much enjoyed to be around in the days of the late forties and through the fifties when these sometimes garish and "over-the-top" designs, which were many times borrowed from furniture and appliance manufacturers and slathered onto the artsy-designs of some of the heaviest, yet most stylish, "gunboats" to ever grace the pavements of the world. Well, the Italian design and coachbuilding company, "Pininfarina", famous for their work with the likes of Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo and many other prestigious companies were, in fact, commissioned by the Nash Motor Company to design these special edition Ambassador "bathtub styled" beauties aptly named the Nash Ambassador "Pininfarina" Country Club Coupe!

This fine looking, original condition, example of a 1954 Nash Ambassador Coupe (also the last year of the Nash Ambassador 2-door coupes), from the era of beautifully-stylish, over-abundance, is offered here on Classicars.com and is an un-restored survivor, with only around 58,000 miles on the odometer. It comes complete with the special-edition "Madame Helene Rother" interior (she was a famous French designer of the time), standard issue wide-whitewall tires, a "continental" spare tire kit (standard equipment for 1954 on all "custom" models) and comes complete with many original owners and repair manuals. This is a rear-wheel drive 2-door coupe, with a "Super Jetfire" in-line, six-cylinder engine, producing some 130 hp and a three-speed manual transmission with overdrive and appointed with the unique, "lay-down", twin-bed style seats.

Please feel free to check-out this fine automobile and contact the owner directly for more information/details. While you're at it, you might as well take some time to view the thousands of other fine vehicles available from around the world right here on Classiccars.com website! Drive to live, live to drive! Have a safe time motoring!

A bit of trivia from 1954: What icon of American "beauty" was televised for the first time in 1954?

Answer: The Miss America Beauty Pageant
