I like the Nash nose this year. Would like to find one of these in a Convertible or atleast a coupe.  Much cheaper than a Ford the same year as well. 

A coupe maybe, but pre-war Nash convertibles are virtually do-do birds, not that there were every many to start with.  Nash buyers were extremely conservative, not convertible buyers in general.   The styling for these 1939-40''s onward Nashes were contracted to George Walker's Industrial Design firm.

I had seen one convertible,  once before in a collection of cars somewhere, I believe out west.  A bunch of partially restored cars ,  some projects and a few older restorations.   I think it was for sale as well.  Maybe 10 or more years ago.  I don't recall other specifics,  but think it was one of the older restoration or mostly original cars that needed work but it wasn't a disassembled hulk or a pile of rot.  I don't recall seeing one since,  but then again haven't looked hard either.

If I recall correctly, this 1940 Ambassador Eight convertible is in the Nicola Bulgari Collection in Allentown. PA.  Its identified as one of the 93 of that specific model built for 1940.
