1940 Nash Lafayette 4DR Humpback - cars & trucks - by owner -... (craigslist.org)
Seller's Description:

1940 Nash LaFayette humpback sedan. Needs headliner and seats redone - have material. Purchased in 2012 in San Jose CA, the seller told me it was a barn find car in Napa CA. It is virtually rust free and has had a lot of repairs & upgrades done since purchase. A buddy of mine took the car for over a year and installed a new Ron Francis wire harness and converted to 12v system. He converted the generator from 6v to 12v. He dismantled & rebuilt the front suspension, made new bushings on his lathe and I found 1 new & 1 used knee action shocks. He completely rebuilt the brakes with a new master cylinder - all parts available at local auto parts store.

The engine runs but smokes after it runs for a while. I made a walk around video with the car running it is posted here:
