1948 Nash Ambassador Custom Convertible
AUCTION RESULTS: Car was Not Sold at a high bid of $75,000

112bhp, 235 cu. in. solid lifter overhead valve inline six-cylinder cast iron block engine, three-speed transmission, independent front suspension, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 112"

The Ambassador was the top of the line model in the Nash Airflyte series, of which the most desirable offering was certainly the convertible, which was re-introduced for 1948. Just 1,000 examples were built, however, as production priorities rested on Nash's closed cars.

The Ambassador Convertible offered here, finished in blue with a tan interior, was purchased by the current owner in the early 1990s, having been fully and professionally restored. It previously resided in Kansas and, since entering the owner's Florida collection, has been properly stored and maintained. Well-equipped with a power top and original factory radio, the car continues to present beautifully. It remains in excellent, running and driving condition with everything functioning properly.

As relatively few of these lovely convertibles were built, and even fewer survive, the opportunity to acquire a particularly outstanding and nicely presented example is quite rare and unlikely to be repeated.
