Gateway Classic Cars of Milwaukee is proud to present this 1940
Nash Lafyette. The Nash Motors Company was founded in 1916 in
Kenosha Wisconsin and continued as America's last independent auto
manufacturer until 1987 when the Chrysler Corporation bought out
American Motors. Over the years Nash innovated many key automotive
features still used on cars today like unibody construction,
heating and ventilation systems and the compact car. In 1954 Nash
merged with Detroit's Hudson Motors. This merger created the new
American Motors and was the largest corporate merger in US history
at the time. Our featured Nash resto mod has been customized with
many features making the car a dream to drive. Updated with a 400ci
Ford V-8 engine paired to a 3-speed Ford FX automatic transmission.
The car is equipped with a 2.71:1 rear end and front disc brakes.
The chassis is a '40 Nash with a modified 2" X 4" box tube front
frame. Front suspension is from a Mustang II and rear suspension is
'69 Mustang leaf spring. The Dark plum metallic paint stands on its
own as all chrome has been deleted on the car making the body lines
stand out. The car is sitting on 15" Billet Specialties 3-Spoke
aluminum rims mated to Cooper Cobra tires and a matching 2-soke
Billet steering wheel. The car features many hot-rodding tricks
like frenched dual power antennas, a 3' chopped top, louvered side
panels under the hood, Frenched headlight, taillights and front
maker lights. Other features in the body are the custom fuel door,
running boards and a third brake light Frenched in between the
split rear window. Inside the car the features and creature
comforts are endless. The interior is finished in a mauve tweed
material. All four bucket seats adjust and recline, there is a
built-in center console with cup holders and an ice chest. For
extra comfort, the car is equipped with air conditioning and heat,
tilt steering column, seat belts, a Kenwood sound system and CB
radio! Take a ride in this unique hot rod!
