Proof by Test (9 Things NOT to do with your Nash)
Ever thought about entering your vintage tub Nash in a dirt track
competition? Does it take serious impulse control to keep from racing your
Rambler Landau up Pikes Peak? Going slack jawed at the thought of going
airborne with your Airflyte?
Well, snap out of it! Do you really want to make that call to Hagerty's
afterward? (Would they even believe your lame excuses?) NO!
Instead, check out this ridiculously rare 1951 Nash film, and watch some
famous vintage maniacs destroy their Nashes all in the name of safety and
Look for previously unknown footage of Bill France, Sr., and Curtis Turner
racing their 1950 Ambassador in the Carrera Panamericana. You'll also see
actual Nash Airflytes driven by Herschel Buchanan in dirt track races.
But the rarest/coolest footage of all is at the end of the film: it's Lucky
Lee Lott and his Hell Drivers jumping Nashes, skidding Nashes, and wrecking
Nashes. (Hard to believe that this was a real Nash-sponsored film!)
It's the perfect Nash film for getting those destructive impulses out of
1959 Nash Metropolitan, Coupe, Ca Car, Restored, SOLD!
1959 Nash Metropolitan, Coupe, Ca Car, Restored, For Sale!
This is a local Southern California "Blue-Plate" car that is completely
rust-free and has been fully restored. This is the rare and desirable
Series IV model with the upgraded engine, rear decklid and vent window
model that was introduced in 1959. This motorcar has been well restored by
a local southern California vintage sports car engineer and racer. The car
is restored to original specifications and is in car show and touring
condition as opposed to concours condition.
The drivetrain was thoroughly rebuilt and the car disassembled for repaint
in its original livery colors of tangerine and white exterior with black
and white interior. In the process of the restoration, the previous owner
decided to change the rear end ratio from an inefficient 4.22: 1 to 3.9: 1.
He also acquired new axles to ensure durability.
He bought the car 11 years ago from a neighbor who had owned it for many
years and had bought it in Los Angeles. The car has been in California
since new. In 1999 the car had amassed a total of 97,779 miles. A
detailed maintenance log from the previous owner is included, which covers
ministerial details such as tire pressure readings and oil changes as well
as restoration activities. By 2000 he had broke 100,000 miles and today
the car has a total odometer reading since new of 103,950 miles. Since the
rebuild it has accumulated approximately 3,000 miles.
The car was repainted and reupholstered over the past year, including most
of the stainless trim replaced, new window rubbers, seals, tires, etc.

Nash Metropolitan dragster
A little Nash Metropolitan was turned into a dragster. It was all motor and
tires. This video was taken at Cruisin' Grand in Escondido on it's first
Friday of the summer.
The car was lurching forward because that's just the way it was idlng.
Nobody wanted to be standing in front of it.
1956 Nash Metropolitan Black and White
Just a real quick look at a 1956 Nash Metropolitan, a real unusual little
car. Then we glance at a Ford Pinto Wagon with woodgrain trim, not one of
our favorites, but to each his own. Thanks for watching.
