  This is definitely a distinctive car.

John_S:  I think you are being kind...the words "frog-eyed" and "awkward" come to mind...the Nash Engineering Department was doing their styling...with mixed results.

There's always been something about the front end on these that bugs me. Maybe the grille projects too far forward, beyond the headlights, or the fenders sweep backwards too much. It reminds me of some WWII military vehicle that I've seen in movies.

Seems to take off from Chrysler air flows

I think part of the styling problem is the short windshield with the tall header,  so it looks like a big forehead.  That alone if it was proportioned better would help.   Funny where an inch here or there can make all the difference.

Wow, I don't think that I have ever seen this version of a "flat-back". Those are striking body molding lines on the rear! All of the ones that I recall seeing have had the somewhat cheesy looking after thought trunk lid.

Nash kind of went nuts with stamped-in 'speed-lines' on their 1934-1936 models.  They contracted with the free-lance auto designer Count Alexis de Sakhnoffsky for design input into their future models.  The liberal use of 'speed-lines' was a hallmark of his design themes af the times.  Overall proportions and details were dominated by the Engineering Department which shows in the rather amateurish, graceless looks that resulted.

The thing that I've always disliked about these was the way the "prow" stands so tall above the too small headlights and front fenders. On the other hand, that's a great art deco design on the hood side moldings. I like the rear design, but I wouldn't own one of these because of the front end.

Geez, I'm getting old. I essentially repeated what I said earlier in this thread.

Definitely agree with you the 36 doesn’t do anything for me, 37 is totally different story

So I wanted to look this car up on craigslist and typed in "1936 Nash" into the search bar.  The car came up but so did the "Weeniesaurus."  I don't know how the artifical intelligence works on these search engines but they really do not appear to be related.  But hey, they were at least trying to appeal to the patriots out there with the hot dog that has an American flag.
