Like many automobile manufacturers, the 1946 Nash was basically a continuation of the 1942 models, whose production was short-lived due to America's involvement in World War II. For 1946, the more expensive Ambassador series was the more luxurious Nash model and offered such accessories as radio and antenna, directional signals, oil bath air cleaner, oil filter, conditioned air system and foam rubber cushions - and an overdrive.
Unique features of this car include a convertible double bed, rear window screens and a rear window wiper. Power comes from a 234.6 cubic-inch inline six that develops 112 horsepower. It features a unitized body attached to the frame. Standard wheelbase was 121 inches. Base factory price of the Slipstream sedan was approximately $1,500.
This Nash was purchased new in Erie, Pennsylvania and driven across Canada several times. The owner acquired the car in 2004 and completed the restoration in 2007.
