1949 Nash Ambassador Airflyte ( An amazing time capsule ! )
A NASH-o-Rific huge car for me!. Garm's new 1949 Nash literally has not
been touched since 1967. I'm sure the air in the trunk and glove box was
circa 1967. It will be here while a mechanical restoration is performed,
the patina will live on with it's new owner in S. Cal. What a beauty!

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.

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
The Nash Metropolitan is a car that was sold, initially, only in the United
States and Canada, from 1954--1962.
It conforms to two classes of vehicle: economy car and subcompact car.
In today's terminology the Metropolitan is a "subcompact", but this
category had not yet come into use when the car was made. At that time, it
was variously categorized, for example as a "small automobile" as well as
an "economy car".
The Metropolitan was also sold as a Hudson when Nash and Hudson merged in
1954 to form the American Motors Corporation (AMC), and later as a
standalone marque during the Rambler years, as well as in the United
Kingdom and other markets.
