Vehicle Description

1929 Nash 420 Standard Six Landau Sedan ?From a local Nash collector ?184 CID L-head inline six-cylinder engine ?Three-speed sliding gear manual transmission and 4.7 gearing ?Body by Seaman Body of Milwaukee, Wisconsin ?Black interior with matching padded fabric-covered roof and pleated brown mohair upholstery ?Coach-style rear passenger doors ?Dual cowl lights ?Four-wheel mechanical brakes and semi-floating rear axle ?Yellow wood-spoke artillery wheels ?Rear-mounted, full-size spare tire ?112.25-inch wheelbase ?Give the customer more than he has paid for,? was Nash?s advertising tagline before and during the Great Economic Depression. This Nash Standard lived up to that slogan when it was new. At 90 years old, it remains in solid and great overall original shape. The car?s black paint is in overall great shape, considering the car?s age; the windows are clear and crack-free while the car?s lights (including its dual cowl lights) are in good shape, including the Brown Bi-Lite driver?s side taillight. The engine bay is very tidy (note the wood firewall) and out back is full-size Firestone spare tire but no wheel. The car?s bi-level chrome bumpers look great. Seaman Body Corporation of Milwaukee, Wisconsin handled car bodies for Nash, which had its assembly plants in nearby Kenosha. This Nash rolls on Firestone gum-dipped tires, size 4.75/5.00-20 at all four corners. Each tire is mounted to a yellow wood-spoke artillery wheel. The wheels and tires are all in very good order. The car has a 112.25-inch wheelbase. Under the vee-shaped hood is a 184 CID L-head inline six-cylinder engine bolted to a three-speed sliding gear manual transmission and backed by a 4.7:1 rear end. Inside, the car?s brown mohair upholstery is in overall great shape; the front and rear bench seats look great. In back are a blanket rail and a foot bar. There?s no carpet to cushion anyone?s feet but the headliner above is in great condition. A four-spoke steering wheel faces the driver while the inner door panels and dashboard are all in good, original order. A floor-mounted shift lever completes the interior. During the late 1920s, the Standard Six was Nash?s entry-level series. It resembled the Special and Advanced Sixes but the Standard had a shorter wheelbase and a smaller engine. It also had the five-passenger Style 428 landau sedan with its formal rear quarters. Competition to this Nash in 1929 included Dodge?s Six Series DA and Oldsmobile?s F-29 Landau, among many others.
