Up for auction is one very nice little 1953 Nash Rambler, (Nashty). This is one of the best built, Nash Street Rods I have seen. Built by a dedicated Rod builder, that dose it right. This car drives as nice as it looks and is a show stopper at all events. The car runs down the road with ease and is a blast to drive. (No raddles and very tight.) The 302 Ford engine has good power and is fun with it's 5 speed trans. All windows roll up and down as they should and front and rear glass is clear with no chips. The car had no rust and the body was very straight when the build was started. The paint is 13 years old and is showing some age from over polishing, but look very nice. (Please look at pictures closely.) Interior is beautiful and looks new. All chrome has been redone and stainless polished, even the original naked lady hood ornament was re plated. This little Nash comes with special built tools for changing the wheels & tires, as they are tucked up inside the body. The car has been channeled over the frame to give it that low Cool look. Many many hours were spent on the build and the quality of the workmanship shows. I'm listing the beautiful little Nash Rambler for a friend and can't express how nice a little car this is. He is only selling the car to make room for a new build.
