1950 NASH AMBASSADOR SER.50 4DR.SED. TOTAL RESTORATION IN THE EARLY 90'S AND WELL OVER $15,000 SPENT BACK THEN! CAR WAS ON DISPLAY AT A MUESUM IN SOUTH DAKOTA FOR SOME TIME AFTER. RESTORATION WAS DONE IN THE LONG BEACH CA. AREA AND CAR SHOWS TO BE A DRY CALIF CAR. I DO NOT SEE ANY COLLISION REPAIRS OR RUST REPAIRS IN ANY AREA. FROM WHAT I HAVE INSPECTED THIS WAS ONE EXCELLENT SUVIVOR FROM THE DRY CLIMATE OF CALIF. THE ENGINE, TRANSMISSION, BRAKES, FRONT SUSPENSION ALONG WITH ALL ATTACHING COMPONENTS WERE PROFESSIONALY WORKED ON AND APPEAR TO BE CORRECT FOR THIS CAR. THIS 50 NASH HAS THE CORRECT ENGINE OF 234.8 CU.IN. 115HP & 7.3 COMPRESSION. THE TRANSMISSION IS THE G.M.4SP HYDRAMATIC WITH 1:1 RATIO IN 4TH. ( as a footnote: all GM 4spd hydramatics are 1:1 in 4th and not an overdrive as is often incorrectly stated ) THE REAR AXEL IS 3.54:1 RATIO, THE CORRECT ONE FOR THE AUTOMATIC. 4.10 WAS STD FOR THE 3SPD. NASH STATED THAT THE HWY MILAGE ON THESE CARS WAS AROUND 25! TOTAL PRODUCTION FOR THIS MODEL WAS 27,523 UNITS MAKING IT THE 3RD MOST POPULAR OF A TOTAL PRODUCTION OF 160,354 NASHES IN 1950. PAINT IS BLACK ON TOP AND GRAY ON LOWER BODY, AND IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THIS NASH NEEDS NOTHING MORE TO BE DONE AND PROBABLY WON'T FOR MANY YEARS TO COME. ATOTAL OF 4600 MILES HAVE BEEN PUT ON IT SO YOU KNOW IT RUNS WELL AND HAS HAD A GOOD RUN-IN.
