1950 Nash Statesman Airflyte--SOLD (Michigan) - $0

Amazing 1950 Nash Statesman Airflyte coupe. Superb running car, featuring the fold down seats for the hotel on wheels. Stunning high quality paint and chrome, with extras including visor and bumper guards. Nash's all-new postwar cars debuted in 1949 with unit-body construction, a one-piece curved windshield, an instrument cluster mounted in a large pod on top of the steering column, and reclining seats. Unit bodies were a bold step forward for Nash at the time as no other volume U.S. manufacturer had ever committed their entire output to this kind of construction before. And while the "Airflyte" Nashes, as they were called, soon earned the nickname of "bathtubs," their round, fastback styling was aerodynamically highly efficient-much more so than any other U.S. car of the time and this, of course, added to Nash's reputation for good gas mileage. For 1950, with demand for new cars still at an unprecedented high, Nash was virtually unchanged. The L-head six-cylinder engine that powered the Statesman gained in displacement with power output rising to 85 bhp. The oddball instrument cluster remained, as did the reclining seats. Production of the Super sedan nearly doubled from the previous year, with 60,090 examples hitting the streets. Nashes of the time were built for comfort, economy and reliability rather than flat-out performance. Coil-sprung suspension at all four corners coddled the passengers while legroom and seating comfort was superior to that offered by many competitors. The Nash "Weather Eye" heating and ventilating system was the best in the industry at the time. All in all, the 1949-51 Nash offered a great deal of value for the money and had a loyal corps of owners who wouldn't think of buying any other make of car. Easy financing available.
