Join in celebrating the life of the Nash Metropolitan in this Hot Rod
Reunion Documentary Short. Richard Sexton brought out his 1955 Pro Street
Metropolitan that he along with his son and a close friend restored/built

when I do, it usually doesn't sound like this one!
1956 Nash Ambassador Special V8 Custom Sedan Test Drive
This is the 56 Nash Ambassador Special V8 four door Custom Sedan owned
Peter and Mary. This complete restoration of excellent quality and high
standards was recently completed by Peter. He purchased the car from the
original owner and drove it home to begin the extensive restoration. The
car was completely disassembled and every detail recorded, inspected and
This Nash is has the Nash V8 that was introduced mid-year. This engine of
190 H.P. and 250 C.I. design was changed in 1957 to 327 C.I. and used in
the Rambler Jeep and all other AMC cars up into the 60's.
This was the most luxurious Nash model produced in the 50's. YES, it has
the fold-down seats that make into a bed. Nash offered camping accessories
such as removable bug screens for the windows and a mattress to place over
the top of the seats for additional comfort.
Peter painstakingly restored the car true to the correct original offering
including the 3-tone paint colors in Ballerina Red, Boulevard Gray and
Frost White. This is a striking color combination that represents some of
the bold colors offered by some manufactures of the time. The interior is
also absolutely correct and restored using the Silver Leaf pattern cloth
that Peter was able to source from SMS Interior fabrics in Oregon.
The car is a pleasure to drive and has already been shown and won "Best of
Show" and "First in Class" in well noted Concour d'Elegance events
including the Grand National Nash Club 2012 meeting in Idaho.
The car is not a "trailer queen" at all, Peter and Mary drive the car to
shows and enjoy the drive and getting together with other car buffs
wherever they go.
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
1947 Nash 600, inside and out
My grandfather purchased this car in 1949, and used it until 1963. You can
still see remnants of the last inspection sticker on the windshield from
that year. We sold it in 1995, but we purchased it again in 2009. The
engine has been rebuilt, the bumpers were rechromed, and the body was
repainted by a previous owner. This car is one of the very first cars with
unitized body construction, which means there is no separate frame under
it. Believe it or not, this car weighs less than 3000 pounds!
