Looking for something different? This is about as different as it gets. Absolute show -  stopper!  It's just amazing how many younger folks have never even heard of a Nash. This is a 1952 Nash Airflyte Wagon. This car was a National Goodguys winner. Goodguys magazine cover car. appeared in many national street rod magazines. and is  probably one of the very best in the country. This car was professionally built in Oklahoma/California. The body was originally purchased at the Pate Auto Swap meet in Fort Worth Texas. having been in storage for 30+ years prior.   A-1 Street Rod Shop in Broken Arrow Oklahoma built the car. including the tubular 2x3 chassis with a 100” wheelbase. A Lincoln 9” rear end (3. 23:1) was narrowed and coupled to a Chassis Engineering four link set up. complete with disc brakes. and Aldan coil over shocks. (The rear end has a slight bearing whine on deceleration. )  Mustang II front suspension was modified. and utilized in front. Weld Drag Star wheels and B. F. Goodrich tires complete the package. Power is supplied from a basically stock 350” Chevrolet. nbsp; “Mr. Goodwrench”  crate motor with Street/Performance pulleys. HPC block hugger headers. polished 100 amp alternator. an aluminum Edelbrock Performer manifold with a 750 Edelbrock carburetor. A custom built aluminum radiator. a Tom Waterman fabricated. and polished. aluminum fan shroud. and a Walker super cool fan keeps it cool. M. S. D. electronic ignition. along with Taylor plug wires. keeps the fires burning. Transmission is a 700R4 unit. with a Lokar shifter. The body is totally steel. shaved and smoothed by A1 Street Rods. The color is PPG/654 tint! Red as red can be! The interior is bone mist tweed. and it is a two-seater. It has power windows and A/C. along with a hidden remote Clarion C/D stacker. A custom built dash. Dakota digital gauges. nbsp; Ididit steering column. chopped Nissan Pulsar seats finish off the interior. The dash is very Art Deco looking. It has a fuel cell in the rear. This is a very cool car! It -DOES NOT- have air bags. It was built low. and rides pretty damn nice too. Here. in New England. most of the roads are fairly bumpy due to the heavy winter frost. I would have to think that in most other parts of this country. where the roads are better. it would ride even better. Being so low. you do have to watch where you're pulling into. or out of. so the front bumper doesn't scrape. If you angle your entrance/exit. you're all set. As you can see. this is not going cheap. but it is priced at about 30% of the build cost. so I'm told.  

 

I may be interested in partial trading for a nice low mileage luxury car. or a steel '33-34 Ford (uncut) two door sedan.   Please. no trade offers with very high mileage cars. You are welcome to ask about other trades that I might be able to sell off.   This Nash was originally built as a trailer queen. and had almost no miles on it when I purchased it several years back. so we've had fun making it usable. and actually getting it out on the road. The photos of the underside show the fantastic work. and detail. but also show the dirt. as proof of its use. I will have it professionally cleaned. top to bottom. before it leaves my ownership. in the event that it is sold. As you can imagine. I've left out a ton of details about this car. some I don't know about. many that are just plain boring. If you have specific questions that I'm able to answer. or find out for you. please feel free to ask. The car has a little less than 2500 miles on it now.   I have a Minnesota title for the car and have never registered it. I just used dealer plates on it.   Presently. the car is in Myrtle Beach South Carolina where I'll be living as soon as our new home is completed.   Obviously. I've already moved this car down there. You are responsible for shipping. but I will do all I can to assist on my end. Please understand that I expect full payment in 7 days. after a $2000 non-refundable deposit.

Do you know where this was when it was in storage for 30 years? Sounds like my grandpa’s car.
