Cadillac V8 Power: 1951 Nash Statesman

The Statesman was a full sized Nash positioned between the top-of-the-line Ambassador, but above the simple Rambler. The post-war styled Nash used advanced (for the time) unibody construction and crazy Airflyte body styling. Front skits, rear skirts, and a wrap around windshield meant this thing looked like an automotive version of those crazy mid-century Streamliner trains.
