About the Nash Series 890 Victoria
Nash's slogan from the late 1920s and 1930s was "Give the customer more than he has paid for" and the cars lived up to it. Innovations introduced by Nash included a straight-eight engine with overhead valves. twin spark plugs. and nine crankshaft bearings. all of which are featured on this Series 890 Victoria.
The Victoria model is one of the most desirable body styles on the 890 Series Nash. While "Victoria" has been used to described several body types. in this case it is meant to describe a two-door sedan with a front passenger seat that folds forward. These were also known as an "opera coupe" as it allowed a woman wearing a formal gown to sit in the rear passenger side seat with ample room for her dress. Needless to say. these were not a family car. but instead were used an accessory for the wealthy who wanted to drive in style. The dual sidemounts on this particular model make it even more stylish. The dual mounts were one of the optional features on the 1931 model year.
The Nash was a success among consumers. but it still suffered from many of the problem that small. independent car producers encountered during the 1930s. Nash management said "selling for a long time has been 100% a production problem. month after month all the cars that could be produced were sold before they left the factory floor. " This meant that while the buying public loved Nash. the complexity it introduced into its vehicles and their dedication to quality production meant that production never kept up with demand. In its 1931 production year. only 38. 16 vehicles rolled off the Nash assembly line. That was only 2. 06% of domestic registrations. Compare that to giants like Ford. who produced 541. 15 vehicle in the same year. That's why Nash models from this year are so rare--Ford was outproducing them by a factor of 14 to 1.
The series 890 was the top-of-the-line Nash in 1931. featuring an OHV straight-eight cast iron block. B&S 3-14" x 4-1/2" with displacement of 298. 6 cu. in.
