133 inch wheel base Seaman Body. This is the first series 990 for Nash in 1932. 8 cylinder twin ignition This car is an unrestored original. Paint appears to be original with original interior. Plenty of chipping on paint (no rust through) and the interior well worn.
Work I have done is as follows: new points, new spark plug wires, new spark plugs, new battery, 6 new tires, new brakes (stops very well), new professional installed padded top. I refinished wood spokes on all 6 wheels and restored all 6 hubcaps. Car has free wheeling. I have added an electric fuel pump so when the car sets for a few weeks,months she starts right up. Car runs well with no smoke.
To the best of my knowledge this vehicle is one of only two known to exist. I have owned this vehicle for the past five years and before that it was in a private collection for many years. Car was originally from central Wisconsin or so I was told.
I was hired by Universal Studios to use this car in the movie "Public Enemies", staring Johnny Depp 3 1/2 months of filming in 2008.
This is a rare opportunity to own a very rare full classic according to HCCA which is a unrestored original. They are only original once!
Car is complete and original with the exception of the temperature and speedometer gauges. Glass is good, original chrome good with no pitting. Under carriage good for its age.
