This is perhaps the most desired Nash in the world. It began with the end of Wold War II. Sensing an opportunity in the booming post-war marketplace, Nash Motors introduced a stylish wood-paneled version of their popular Ambassador called the Suburban. Featuring high-quality ash framing, with mahogany paneling supplied by Mitchell-Bentley of Owosso, Michigan, the Suburban coachwork was based on the handsome “slipstream” sedan, a classic 1940s streamlined design. Intended as an image-building model, the Suburban came loaded with options, such as “Cruising Gear” overdrive, a trend-setting “Weather-Eye” heater, and a remote control Zenith radio, which enabled the driver to change stations at the touch of his toe. Production of the Suburban was extremely limited. Between 1946 and 1948, Nash sold exactly 1,000examples of the exclusive Suburban; in 1947, 595 Suburbans were built, accounting for a mere 1.5% of Kenosha production. Extremely rare when new, the survival rate of these fascinating wood-trimmed Nash automobiles is incredibly low. Today, fewer than 20 examples are known to remain. This may be the most fully optioned Nash Surburban survivor in the world, with fender skirts, roof rack, visor, fog lamps and more. And of course, this is a Nash so the rear seat folds down to be a full sleeping bed.
