Suburban
 
In 1947, Nash registered the 10th highest car sales total in America, selling over 113,000 cars. Of those, 595 were Ambassador Suburbans, which were essentially pre-war Ambassador fastbacks, trimmed with real wood. Between 1946 and 1948, approximately 1,000 of those cars were manufactured; today, less than 20 of them exist.

Suburbans ride on a 121-inch wheelbase, weigh 3522 pounds and are motivated by Nash's 235 cubic-inch, six-cylinder engine. They originally cost $2,227. This particular car is particularly well optioned, with both the 'Cruising Gear' overdrive and the 'Weather Eye Conditioned Air System.'

This car was restored by Woody Specialist, Lloyd Mayes. It also resided in the Nicola Bulgari collection, prior to being purchased by its current owner.
