  2. John_S_in_Penna: The interior pattern looks to be correct though I'd have to check my SDC Turning Wheels article about the details of what was the standard Land Cruiser fabric. In terms of value, if this Land Cruiser checks out to be mechanically robust and largely rust-free, it is priced at or a bit over the top of the market for 1953-'58 Studebaker sedans. On the other hand, it has the overdrive which makes these very nice drivers and good on fuel. Parts supplies and club support and advice are first-class with the Studebaker Driver's Club. The 120.5" wb Y-Body Land Cruiser was their top-line sedan with the additional 4" of rear seat legroom and folding center armrest, rear door vent windows and their best trim level. This particular car though looks like one would encounter Studebakers then: overdrive for good fuel mileage, dog-dish hubcaps and black-wall tires in spite of it being their 'fanciest' model. But the original buyer did spring for one frivolity: two-tone paint! Steve

  4. True, 1929 would have fender mounted lights but 1927-'28 have cowl lights. Buicks had a square emblem on the headlight tie-bar too but its too indistinct to be sure.

  6. Here is a cropped view, appears as if the radiator was covered with a blanket. The headlight tie-bar has a rectangular emblem which suggest Cadillac or LaSalle. I'd opine the latter, a 1929 Fisher-bodied sedan.

  11. Hardly one in a hundred sellers takes the time to set up and take attractive and appropriate photographs of their car for an advertisement. The worst offenders are those who can't figure out to turn their smart-phone camera 90 degrees to take a landscape rather than portrait view. They stand fifty paces from the car, show us more sky and foreground than car...and still don't get the complete car in the image!
  12. The Standard Catalogue of Independents list the 44 1955 two door club coupe and 226 four door sedans as "Retitled 1954 Series'. While retitling leftover last model year cars was still legal then, Kaiser-Willys did take the time to change the one detail that denotes a 1955: the simulated hood scoop has the taller center fins and two wind-split 'bumps' flanking on each sides. That was enough styling change to meet the requirement then to identify a new model year car. Beyond the 270 retitled leftover 1954 cars, the following is noted: "Note 1: Available statistics indicate 210 units made in 1955 for U.S. sale." "Note 2: Available statistics indicate 1,021 units made in 1955 for sale in Argentina." Although few Kaiser-Frazer-Willys cars are undergoing restoration now, one hopes this one does.
  13. What a rarity! The Standard Catalogue of Independents doesn't list the price for the four speed transmission with buckets and console for 1966. It does list for 1965 the buckets and console ($119.50) and Shift Command transmission ($234.50) as an indication of how much additional was added to the $2,968 factory price. The power steering pump is present, that was $84, assuming power brakes as well, $42. I'd opine no more than a handful were four speed transmission equipped Ambassador convertibles.

  17. For Sale: 1951 Nash Ambassador Super 4dr Sedan - $14,900 - Town of Middleton, WI 1951 Nash Ambassador Super - cars & trucks - by owner - vehicle... (craigslist.org) This Nash Ambassador Super is a great traveling car. As roomy as a limo in back with a huge trunk. 3 speed column shift with overdrive, and an economical OHV 7 main bearing 6 cylinder that cruises comfortably at 60-65 mph. An Oregon car, completely rust free. No damage history. There is a small dent on the hood, otherwise completely straight. The previous owner was a Nash devotee and he spared no expense in making sure it was in top running order. Radial tires. The paint is original, though you wouldn't know it unless you looked at the roof where you can see some fading. It is still the original 6v system. The previous owner had the interior tastefully redone and it looks original.All lights work, brakes are excellent, starts right away, does not burn oil and is not a smoker. Electric backup fuel pump. Optional oil filter assembly. Clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing were replaced. New battery. Seat belts installed front and rear (2 in front, 3 in back). Much documentation comes with the car.The Ambassador was the top of the line Nash, considered a luxury car and the most aerodynamic of its time, by far. The Airflyte model has fold-down front seats, and a popular dealer option was a rollout mattress and magnetic window screens for camping (I don't have the mattress and window screens).If purchasing long-distance, I invite you to have the car professionally inspected to be assured of its condition as I've described it. I will also assist your shipper. IMPORTANT NOTE: We will be departing for our FL winter home by the end of November, so if not purchased and delivered by that time, the ad will be taken down and the Ambassador will be available again upon our return next spring.
