At the beginning of 2020, there was a 1950 Nash Ambassador

4-door sedan advertised in our AACA national magazine.

The asking price was $17,000, but I kept in touch with the

seller (in Penna.), and the car sold late that year for $13,000.

It was fully restored:

A neat car to admire today at a time when few people are aware that a manufacturer was at one time even named Nash. However, in my younger days I would not be as appreciative of the body style of this vehicle for sale.  I prefer the 1932, 1933, and 1934 models. The price offered at $12,000 appears very releasable for a vehicle that appears to be dent free and has what appears to be good bright-work. What can you buy today for $12,000 ? At the rate of inflation these days $12,000 will soon be worth $1,200 and my retirement age will have to be re-calculated to 98 years old.  The good news is that I can't afford to die before I retire.

  • condition: good
  • cylinders: 6 cylinders

1950 Nash Ambassador 4-door seems to be all original no rust except around trunk seal and one spot on rear quarter panel. needs brake work but runs and drives nicely. If you want something no one has, this is for you.

In case you didn't know, the radio is behind that fold-down "tambor" door in the center of the dash. I always thought that was a silly useless detail, but it made for a clean uncluttered look to the dash. Nash promoted a foot-operated pushbutton switch which, when pressed, would advance the radio tuner to the next station, so a person could hunt for stations without raising the little door. I recall that Hudson offered the same option in the forties, but I don't think that I have ever seen that feature on a Step Down Hudson.

My brother sure loved his Nashes, although I never was as fond of them. While this is a quirky car, it is a quality car. That six Is no Hornet, power-wise, but it has seven main bearings. I honestly think that it's a shame that they can't command better prices these days than they do. Some of you might enjoy reading the brief Wiki article about them. Especially the comparison to Hudson's unibody:

Like BofB said, at one time I thought this design was goofy looking, today I think is more unusual and not goofy anymore.  In fact, I think it would be a fun car to own and the price seems to make it quite a bargain.

I purchased this fine Nash in September 2022 and it was and is worth every penny. It is now almost January of 2023 and I am still trying to get the car registered and titled here in California. New York changed the Vin number to this car way back in the 50's or 60's and also do not title cars older than 1972 so it is turning into a problem that California can't seem to get a handle on. The Vin on the car no longer matches the Vin on the renewable registration but the DMV here tells me they will get to the bottom of it hopefully in a few more weeks. Meanwhile I can drive it with temporary registrations issued monthly. Has anyone else had this problem with cars out of other states?

When I lived in CA over 20 years ago, I had trouble over a antique VIN and Sacto said they would get it straightened out.  Filled out multiple forms to them.  Local DMV inspection, CHP inspection, everything they asked.  Then NOTHING from Sacto for a YEAR.  I demanded the paperwork all back and got it.

I went to a "dealer title service" business (specializing new and used car dealers) and explained the problem.  He asked how I wanted the title to read and it came in about 3 weeks in the mail and was LEGAL.   

Unless things have changed drastically, the CA DMV is totally grossly incompetent.

Good luck with your situation.

It seemed that some Dealers in NYS registered the car with the engine number when sold new and some with the VIN, until around 1957-58. Very inconsistent to say the least.
