Description for Nash Statesman 1951

1951 Nash Statesman with a 429 horsepower 383 stroker, built TH350, 4 wheel ventilated PDB, rack and pinion power steering, AC, Ford 9" with 3.70 posi, 12-volt system. Electric exhaust cutouts run through tailpipes and bypass the low-restriction mufflers. Four pipes under center of rear bumper. Original instruments are converted to 12-volt, original radio is now AM/FM with bluetooth for phone.
This car was built from a bone-stock, rust-free 59K-mile Nash. It was professionally-built and has a custom cross member with mustang II power rack and pinion steering set up hooked up to the stock column and shifter to preserve the character of the car. It has adjustable coil-over shocks all around and 4-link rear end setup with new 15" body-colored steel wheels and new radial tires. The interior AC unit is a reproduction '55 T-bird unit.
The car was repainted in stock colors, it has a new windshield and windshield gasket, rechromed bumpers and hood ornament, new custom interior with wool carpet and silver piped faux alligator. It's fast, very cammy, and drives great. I run 94 octane fuel in it and it doesn't ping.
It isn't perfect. Has a few minor paint chips, one door handle return spring needs to be replaced (I have the part--pain in the rear to change), and some of the chrome still has a little pitting (grille) and some of the rear side windows are bubbling (as old car glass frequently does.) It really draws attention everywhere you go and is a car you can get in and drive. The sound it makes is fantastic--with or without the exhaust cutouts open. I hate to sell it but have leased my building and some cars (this one and a half-dozen or so more) simply have to go--especially those I rarely every drive.
Be the hit of the local car show with this one. The ultimate sleeper (with the famous Nash fold-down seats, too!)

I have had people ask me how the car drives. It tracks true and straight. The steering is pretty insulated from the road. It doesn't bottom out or bang like other lowered cars I have owned. It has great brakes--particularly when they warm up a tiny bit. It handles amazingly well. At 80, it is surprisingly quiet. Aerodynamic Nash!

Here's a video showing the car and what it looked like when it was bone stock and I first bought it 5-6 yrs ago...
