440 Duster drag racing - he does a solid burnout, smokes the tires, then finishes a mid-11's run in the 1/4 mile. This car is a big block mopar, and you can tell it. This car has a huge thumpr cam, barely idles, and sounds MEAN! This car has some sick M/T slicks out back, and is a monster!
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

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

Short video tour of the 1950 Nash Statesman
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.
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.
