1951 Nash Statesman Custom 184 Inline 6 from North America


A neat old car, still in the process of being restored


Considering the age of the car, it has been very reliable. The vehicle had sat for 10 years prior to my purchase. The braking system needed complete replacement.

General Comments:

It is difficult, thought not impossible, to find parts for this vehicle. The Nash Car Club has been a big help in finding parts. It is the most comfortable automobile I have ever driven.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

An interesting rare car you have, and a one that's in my own must-have-one-day top 10. Hard to say if that model is actually ugly or pretty. Either way, once you got it back to road, it'll surely draw attention. :)

You know, my dad bought a Nash back when I was a kid, and I thought it was the ugliest looking automobile I had ever seen. When he would drop me off at school, I wanted to disappear in the back seat and put a bag over my head so I wouldn't be recognized by anyone. I thought it looked like a gigantic June bug with wheels. Fortunately it barfed up a transmission and dad unloaded it... traded it in on a '58 Thunderbird, which made mom very happy... and ultimately saved me from psychotherapy. I don't mean to be critical of a car's styling, but that thing was the homeliest beast to ever come off the assembly line.
