This car is an affordable classic that truly impresses. After all,
the 1951 Nash Ambassador sedan is already a rare and historic
sight. So to find one this complete and nice is a treasure that
looks far more expensive than its value price.
A Nash is a rare sight today, especially the full-size flagship
like the Ambassador. But this one wants to impress for more than
just likely being the only one to be at a car show. So the blue
paint has a good gloss from a more recent application. And there
are terrific classic details, like the Nash-Healey inspired front
end, classic wheel covers, seductive hood ornament, and wraparound
front trim. But the most attractive part of all is the thoroughly
streamlined design with a distinctive fastback rear. You not only
have rear fender skirts but also the front wheel wells are skirted,
too. So you have an ultra-smooth look to the well-fitting body
panels. This design also lets the lower full-length trim connect to
the bumpers uninterrupted. So it looks like you have a bright
chrome ring encircling the whole car.
The interior is absolutely an awesome place to share with vintage
car lovers, and since this is a full-size sedan, there's plenty of
room for everyone. It has a classic style, this has been redone to
stay comfortable for more modern times. So you have a tasteful blue
and gray two-tone cloth on the seats that's also repeated on the
doors. The dash was upgraded to the exterior blue as part of the
thorough restoration, but you have all the right classic pieces in
place, right down to the Nash badge in the center of the steering
wheel. And you'll appreciate details, like how both the dome light
and AM radio still light up. Plus, these Ambassadors could fold the
front seat flat to create a bed, and so this one comes with the
window screen and sleeping bags to show off the camping
The highly correct and classic presentation continues under the
hood. The 235 cubic-inch inline-six has a model year correct
stamping. It fires up and runs with the feeling of good care. The
three-speed transmission is a column-shifted unit to give you a
vintage feel while also delivering proper control. As you look at
the undercarriage photos, the clean color-matched presentation
really tells you how comprehensive the restoration was. And as you
check that out, you can also see how Nash was building a terrific
soft ride suspension in the early 1950s.
This is the cool classic sedan that knows how to get to the show
and arrive in style. That's a terrific package for this price, and
so we know you want to hurry up and call today!
