10k: Airflyte: 1949 Nash Ambassador Super Special

You don’t need a $175k 930 Turbo that makes an entrance like tin foil in a microwave for a weekend classic driver, all you need is cool looking ride that puts a smile on your face.  Aftermarket support for replacement parts is important if you plan on putting many miles on it and things like functioning heaters and AC might be important depending on where you live.  For the married man, capital investment price comes first because any such decisions need to be approved by the CFO, so the question is why spend the cash on makes/marques/models hopelessly inflated by greedy flipvestors when you can be cool & cheap instead?  A prime example is this 1949 Nash Ambassador Super Special currently bidding for $7,900 with less than 1 day to go.

The 1949 Nash features a crazy looking aerodynamic up-side-down bathtub shape, complete with front/rear wheel skirts.  Luckly it has the two feet of suspension travel necessary to remove those front wheels, but you’ll need a seriously boss off-road style jack to lift the steel body that high up in the air.

The Nash uses a 3.8 liter inline-6 fed by a 1bbl carburetor and rated at 112 horsepower.  Power is directed via a 3-speed manual gearbox to the rear wheels.

Notable in the interior pictures are multiple moisture absorbing damp-rid containers and a box of arm & hammer…mold problem?  Not in here!!
