Very rare 1956 Nash Ambassador LeMans. Purchased the car out of
Texas. These were Ambassador Custom models that featured the dual
side draft carburetor Nash Healy motor from the factory. I have
searched for any information such as production figures or sales
literature and was never able to locate anything specific to these
LeMans models as these cars were very low production. The only
information I was told was that in anticipation of strong sales for
their Nash Healey line Nash produced a surplus of these engines. As
the Healeys did not sell as many as anticipated Nash had a surplus
of these engines left over and in an effort to utilize them decided
to create the LeMans model to add to their Ambassador line. They
were produced for 3 years from 1954-1956. So this is the last year
for this model and as a rule when a car company has a limited run
the last year usually has the lowest amount of cars produce. The
only other noticeable item that denotes this as a LeMans is the
LeMans nameplate which is on the rear quarter panels. This car is
just as I purchased it . I have not done anything to it including
drive it as my schedule did not allow me to find time to enjoy it.
This is the reason I am selling it The previous owner had this car
restored, receipts. The car was originally tri-tone green, black
and white and the previous owner decided to have it restored in the
original red, black and white colors which is much more striking.
This is an Ambassador so it is equipped with a 6 cylinder OHV
engine and automatic transmission. The car ran well when I bought
it and has always been stored indoors under a cover by me.. I
assume it will need a battery and a fuel pump as any car I've had
needed the same after they sat for a bit. Maybe new gas as well.
I'm not a mechanic so it may need something else There are a few
soft bubbles in the red areas on both sides and it will need a
small body repair to the r/s lower quarter.
