1949 Nash Ambassador Airflyte barnfind 1st time driven in over 44 years
Come along for a ride in this arcane behemoth !!! It feels so satisfying to
drive a car that has sat for so long and required so much work to bring
back to life and restore to driver status. This kind of job satisfaction
keeps me going. It's my life reward and passion. All brakes, fuel system,
engine and chassis repairs now complete. This old Airflyte now purrs like a
kitten and stops on a dime. Update: this car is a "Special Super", of
course, we all know it it super special....Haha, it has special handwritten
in pencil on the fire wall, but, I never thought much about it. Turns out
it has been positively identified as a very rare 1949 "Special Super", no
other 1949 special supers are known to exist....yet
1941 Indian Chief Alive After 30 Years in Pieces - 1941 Barn Find Chief Build
for the complete build on this bike and the resurrection after being in
pieces for 30 years.
This Chief was taken apart around 1984 and sat in pieces for the last 30
years. The motor was built in 1986 and never run. Over 5 months, Indian
John and I took everything else apart and put it back together. She
started in 2 kicks! The adrenaline rush was amazing after working for all
these months. It could not have been done with out the knowledge and
patience of John teaching me the finer points of Indian restoration - Thank
you, the knowledge and memories are priceless.
It looks like it was originally a Sammy Pierce bike with an AIMCO stamp on
the motor and it was bought in California around that timeframe.
Duane Sheridan rode the heck out of this bike. I'm trying to keep the
history alive. If you have any pictures of Duane or the bike, please email
them to me so his memory can live on.

At first glance, this car looks like an armored limousine, with inch-thick
glass and carefully-drilled gun ports. On closer examination, however, it
gets more and more curious.
The Cadillac build records call it "Fltwd Limo," body style 6275, number
356, and indicate it was ordered by the Chicago branch on February 21,
1935. Painted Thessalon Green, it had black leather in the front
compartment and Wiese brown vogue weave broadcloth in the rear. Fitted with
six wire wheels, two of them in fender wells, it had a radio in the rear
compartment and a flexible steering wheel. There is a further notation
about "Special Fleetwood Body Order 310," the details of which are lost to
The online Cadillac Data Base, a meticulous compilation by historian Yann
Saunders, gives production figures for Style 6275 as nine in 1934 and just
seven in 1935, exclusive of those given suffixes as sedans, formal
limousines or limousines with increased headroom. The bodies were the same
as the flat-windshield limousine Style 6075, whose Fisher body tags they

Today's story is about a true barn find. The car in question is a 1966
