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

1949 Nash Ambassador underside inspection
25k orignal mile 1949 Nash Ambassador "Barn Find" initial inspection. We put the Nash up on the lift to check the underside. To our suprise, only 1 quart of oil came out of the engine, and 19 gallons of NOT so stinky fuel drained from the tank.... this car was last registered in Walla Walla Wa. in 1967 and is under going a roadworthy mechanical restoration. The car is in fantastic shape for it's age. We cannot find even a spot of rust yet.

AMERICAN ECONOMY CAR IMPORT, THE NASH METROPOLITAN
AFTER YEARS OF DELAY, NASH MOTORS LAUNCHED THEIR FOREIGN MADE ECONOMY CAR IN 1954, THE NASH METROPOLITAN. IT WAS DESIGNED BY NASH BUT PRODUCED IN GREAT BRITAIN BY AUSTIN MOTORS FOR ENGINES, AND FISHER & LUDLOW MADE THE BODIES. THE BODIES WERE HARDTOPS AND CONVERTIBLES. EXPORTED TO THE U.S. AND CANADA ONLY THE FIRST TEN THOUSAND CARS HAD A 1200-CC ENGINE, AND A 1500-CC STARTING IN AUGUST '54. BOTH ENGINES WERE OHV 4 CYLINDERS. THE TWO PASSENGER CARS HAD AN 85 INCH WHEELBASE AND WEIGHED ABOUT 1,800 LBS. THE HARDTOP COST $1,469 AND THE CONVERTIBLES COST $ 1,445. GAS MILEAGE WAS FIGURED AT 40 MILES PER GALLON. FROM '53 TO '54, ALMOST 14,000 METROS WERE MANUFACTURED. WHEN YOU VIEW THIS VIDEO, NOTICE THE RAISED VENT PORTS IN FRONT OF THE WINDSHIELD, AND ALSO NOTE THE BEADED METAL THAT OUTLINES A TRUNK LID THAT DOES NOT EXIST. NOT UNTIL 1959 ANYWAY. IF YOU WANTED TO STOWE SOMETHING IN THE TRUNK AREA, PULL THE BACK SEAT FORWARD AND STUFF WHATEVER BEHIND THE SEAT. DON'T KNOW WHY THEY NEVER HAD AN OPENING TRUNK LID FOR SIX YEARS, BUT IT MUST HAVE BEEN INCONVENIENT. ALSO NOTICE THE FAMOUS NASH HOOD ORNAMENT. SCULPTED FROM A REAL NUDE FEMALE MODEL, THESE HOOD ORNAMENTS ALWAYS GRACED METROS. METROS ALWAYS HAD A SPARE TIRE MOUNTED ON THE REAR. METROS USUSALLY CAME IN TWO-TONE COLOR COMINATIONS THE MOST COMMON COLORS BEING BLACK, RED, TURQUOISE, YELLOW, AND GREEN WHICH WAS COMPLIMENTED BY WHITE PAINT. YOU SEE METROS ON OCCASION AND THEY ARE ALWAYS A CROWD PLEASER. ENJOY THIS RARE AMERICAN IMPORT FROM NASH.
1961 Nash Metropolitan hardtop
Nice little car..part of American Motor's offering. There was also a Hudson version, with just a different name plastered on the car. This was truly an import, from England, with an Austin engine, sold at Nash and Hudson dealers here. It was a nice counterpoint to Rambler American compacts and Rambler Rebel and Ambassador full sized cars.
Late 50's Nash Metropolitan convertible
These cars represent an early cooperative effort between Austin of the U.K. and the conglomerate Nash-Hudson-Kelvinator. The cars were built abroad, then imported to the U.S. At first they were sold at Nash dealers, then when Hudson joined, the same car was sold at Hudson dealers, albeit with an "H" displayed instead of an "N". I think it was pretty successful..and had nice styling flair. A hardtop model was also offered.
