This 1955 Nash Rambler is one of the most affordable and distinctive ways to enjoy classic motoring. With it unique style, great two-tone, and plenty of room for everyone, you know this is a great way to enjoy the world of vintage cars.
The first-generation Rambler is one of the most unique stories of the '50s. Nash wanted a more compact design than what was coming out of Detroit's Big Three. And while this wasn't the largest sedan by size, the Rambler owned the road with its style. In fact, famed Italian automotive designer Pinin Farina had a hand in this car. And while no one will mistake a Rambler for a Ferrari, it still is one of the sleekest American classics around. And this example represents this history so well. It shows the European influence with sheetmetal that still shows its gentle curves over 60 years later. And it also is a true showcase for American style. The two-tone Caribbean Blue and Snowberry White is expertly intertwined, often using the car's trim as a dividing line. And speaking of the trim, these cars were a wonderful brightwork showcase with lines that would run the full length of the car (also highlighting the stylish covered rear wheels.) And you'll love the detail work from the seductive hood ornament leading the way, to the whitewall tires that coordinate with the car's two-tone. There' even a color-matched continental kit on the rear to make sure this sedan even ends in style.
While this was considered to be a smaller car by 1950s standards, today that still leaves a ton of room for family and friends. Two rows of wide benches are quite accommodating, especially with the comfy cloth inserts for where you sit. Even the door panels and carpeting coordinates in this nicely refreshed package. This is built to be a nostalgic classic, so you get the factory dual-spoke steering wheel that gives you a clear view of the original gauge package. Even the factory AM radio is still on display. In fact, the only real update on the dash you'll find is a cleanly installed temperature readout, which is part of the knowledge you really want when driving your classic.
You see more of this highly correct presentation under the hood. The 196 cubic-inch inline six has the feeling of correctness from the matte gray paint to the air topper. But looking nostalgic doesn't mean missing out on service. In fact, this example has had plenty of recent investments, including new engine mounts, rebuilt classic McCord radiator, new radiator fan, battery, and more. The result is a classic that fires up eagerly. Plus, the correct Hydramatic automatic transmission shifts with the kind of confidence that really lets you enjoy this Rambler.
This is the cool classic 1950s machine that knows how to get to the show and arrive in style. That's a terrific package for this price, and so we know you want to hurry up and call today!
