I never knew Nashes of this era used an OHV engine. I always assumed that they were flatheads. When did they switch to OHV?

They had both an OHV and a flathead version of what I believe is the same size engine depending on model of vehicle. It was that way until the early 60's. I believe the size was 196 cu in.

Yes and no. The Nash Statesman engine, formerly the Nash 600 engine, was a tiny flathead engine. It remained in production for many years, eventually growing to 196ci. During it's last years, there was an overhead valve version produced concurrently with the flathead.

 

This car has neither. It is an Ambassador and has the overhead valve Ambassador Six, a much larger engine. The nose of this car is about 8 or 9 inches longer than a Statesman just to accommodate the larger engine.

I noticed that this car is also advertised on the

internet site of Hemmings Motor News:

 

https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/nash/ambassador/2608360.html

 

At $18,500, it is not yet realistically priced, I feel. 

A year and a half ago, a fully restored example--

significantly better than this--sold for $13,000.

That car had begun at $18,000 in the AACA's

national magazine and took at least 6 months

to sell.  Here's a picture of the $13,000 restored car:

I agree to a point - however, the current one is blue, not two 'funky' shades of green :)

I like both car colors.  The green is right out of the 1950s desirable in the day two tone treatment and the light blue is too. Lots of Chrysler cars had that light blue in the early 1950s.  I could see $15k for the blue one being in the ballpark.
