Truly Incredible 1947 Nash Ambassador 60 Coupe
The next amazing classic up for grabs in our Fairfield showroom is this gorgeous, highly customized 1947 Nash Ambassador 60 2 Door Coupe with Summit White exterior paint with metal flake added, stunning multi-color blue flames, and a brown cloth interior with Dolphin gauges. The engine has been bored to 488 cubic inches and has an Eagle 4.25-inch stroke crank, Keith Black pistons, Childs & Albert rods, roller cam with .580 lift and .342 duration, 3/8-inch push rods, LS6 454 open chamber rectangular port cylinder heads, Manley valves (225 intake, 188 exhaust), double valve springs with dampeners, titanium retainers, Mildon gear drive, plus an O-Ringed block and heads. The Weiand 671 supercharger has Teflon rotors, and is topped by a pair of Holley 750 double pumper carbs, an MSD ignition lights the candles, and 2-1/4 inch Speedway fenderwell headers route the spent gasses through a DynoMax exhaust system. Mated to the muscular motor is a Hughes built Turbo 400 automatic with an SFI bell housing shield and flex plate, plus a Continental 4,000 stall converter. By the time it was done, the engine was putting out 1,007 horsepower on the dyno, running on pure racing fuel. It has been de-tuned to be driven on the street, and it has remained that way ever since. However it still makes approximately 700hp, and you can't help but put the gas pedal to the floor for some grins. Power hits the ground through a Ford Mosher 9" rear end on a Competition Engineering 4-link chassis. This pro street example is also loaded with Koni front Coilovers with a Mustang II suspension, a full roll cage, a custom interior and so much more.
Extensively Upgraded for Pro Street Performance
The current owner of this 1947 Nash Ambassador 60 Coupe acquired it from the original builder in 2020, and he informs us that this outstanding example started its life in Florida. As you can see from the photographs, this classic has been extensively updated during a nut and bolt restoration that saw every inch of this desirable classic updated for blistering performance and reliability, including the drivetrain, suspension, frame, and all accessories. While there is some insignificant wear present since the restoration, this outstanding classic still shows in like-new condition throughout and really turns heads wherever it goes.
Additionally, this 1947 Nash Ambassador 60 2 Door Coupe delivers incredible performance on the open road with fantastic acceleration and stopping power. The high-end custom interior also makes this an excellent driver that can be enjoyed on weekends or simply for trips to regional car shows. This classic absolutely has "best in class" potential as well since the build ran well into the six-figure range. It must be seen in person to fully appreciate since this is easily one of the most outstanding Nash examples in the country.
One of the Coolest Examples Nationwide
Overall, this 1947 Nash Ambassador 60 2 Door Coupe is a show-stopping, Pro Street classic that's been built correctly for enjoyment around town, at your local drag strip, or on center stage. Examples of this caliber rarely become available on the open market, so we do not foresee this classic remaining available for long.
