If you remember the 1950's black & white Superman TV show then you may remember a car just like this & picture Lois Lane & Jimmy Olsen & even Clark Kent pouring out of it to get the latest news story. This car is in excellent condition, runs and drives beautifully. I purchased car from the son of a friend. His grandfather had given him the car and he lost interest. The car has had a tremendous amount of maintenance work done, and some years ago over $6,000. worth of paint work. Some parts that were originally chrome have been painted a soft, metallic silver. It appears to be very solid and everything working as it should. The engine runs smoothly. The car has overdrive and a heater and I think that's about it. I know little about the brand, and consequently, somewhat handicapped in a detailed description. The original owners manual would lead one to believe the car was originally sold in Bedford, PA. I just drove the car a couple of miles and all is good. Today (Sat. 1/21/17) is the first time the car has been driven since last summer. For the first time, today 2/11/17, I dug thru the glove compartment and found the original "This Nash Airflyte is equipped with automatic overdrive" manual/brochure. Also, it was June of 2009 when $6,674. was spent on paint, chrome, etc. It will be terrific when a "Nash person" comes along and buys this car!
One of his final wishes was to take a ride in his 1956 Nash Ambassador. With the help of his family and ClassicCars.com, Patrick McKay got his wish.
‘Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Superman!” But if you looked at the ground during the days of the 1950s, you likely saw a car much like our Pick of the Day.
Italian design house Pininfarina is known mainly for amazing Ferrari and Alfa Romeo designs, but the company also did extensive work with British and American auto manufacturers.
When most people think of the late, lamented Nash brand, they conjure up bulbous family cars of the 1950s or perhaps the tiny Nash Metropolitan.
Just how do you suppose the historically famous Italian company, Pininfarina, ever became involved in the styling designs of the 1950’s Nash automobiles?
Be the envy of your JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) buddies or drift crowd with the Pick of the Day, a right-hand-drive 1991 Nissan 300ZX. Showing just over 37,000 miles and in what looks like clean original condition, the sport coupe was apparently imported directly from an owner in Japan, where it was “well-maintained,” according to […]
In 2016, Ford, with its redesigned GT supercar, returned to Le Mans to attempt a repeat of a storied feat 50 years prior. The company and team succeeded, winning its class in the prestigious endurance classic. This is the story of the return. Historians, including Preston Lerner and Ford executives tell the story of the […]
It’s 2020 and I have been invited to judge yet another car show. It is something I love doing as it exposes me to cherry cars and commensuration with like-minded friends. However as mentioned, this is 2020. The global pandemic of COVID-19 has given cancel culture the upper hand on just about every aspect of […]
By 1951, when Jaguar introduced the art-deco teardrop lines of the XK120 Fixed Head Coupe, they already had impacted the motoring world with the XK120 roadster that proved to be the fastest production car in the world. The 120 in the name referred to its top speed of 120 mph. Clark Gable famously took delivery […]
Mika Hakkinen, with his two Formula One Driver’s World Championships is undoubtedly a key personality in the long storied legacy at McLaren. His Championships were now 20 years ago, but he is still an ambassador for the legendary Milton Keynes race and road car builder. At the Rolex Reunion at Laguna Seca in 2019, during […]
