The Standard Catalog of Independents: The Struggle to Survive Among Giants ,edited by Ron Kowalke, list the Second Series 1080 as the Special Eight, 260.8 ci eight, 128" wb.   Of the Series 1090 Advanced Eight and Ambassador Eights, the Advanced Eights were 1090-1093 body styles on 133" wb, the Ambassador Eights were 1094-1099 built on the 142" wb, both powered by the 322 ci eights.


All the first and second series model year splits instituted by various carmakers during 1930-'33 to buoy up sales had little affect, but certainly make identifying which cars are what difficult now.


If someone should have a 1932 Nash convertible coupe or convertible sedan body, this might provide parts for its restoration.

That is a nice looking sedan. And looks to be in decent shape. Cleaning it and bolting on parts would help the sale.

For whatever reason people want to leave the dirt on a car when it is a “barn find”.  I don’t get it.

Nash for 1932 and 1933 where such classic styled vehicles. They had a singular elegance above most models from other manufacturers of that era.  

And yet, four years forward would the 1936 Nash 400 and Lafayette arrive, among the more ineptly-styled cars that year!

My opinion Nash's styling took a beating after 1934. 1934 was the last year that Nash attempted to compete with higher end manufacturers with the Ambassador Line and especially with the long 142 inch wheel base " Duzenberg from  Kenosha" and their "streamline" styling with  Count Alexis de Sakhnoffsky (the only Ukrainian car designer that I am aware ever existed). After 1934 it appears that Nash wanted to move away from a fancy European car designer that had a name that no one could pronounce or spell and focus more on the budget minded consumer with smaller cheaper vehicles that were designed by Americans with names that that had less than 20 letters. I opine that Nash decided not to risk swaying too far from the styling trends of the competition. Yet, the 1936 "bed-in-a-car" feature was something that I thought was nifty.  With the cost of research & development getting so expensive the independent manufacturer's days were numbered.
