Description of 1950 Nash Statesman

Vehicle Details

A very nice unmolested 1950 Nash Statesman Custom. It seems to have spent its life prior to my purchase in the Boise, Idaho area and must have been kept very dry. It has very little rust, light surface rust at most. I removed the passenger side door upholstery and found nothing but a trace of dust inside the door. The paint has light wear, patina, some scratches and very small amount of long-ago retouching. The upholstery is original with a wear area at the driver's seat. The rear portion of the carpet is original and in poor condition and the front carpeting was replaced at some point.Engine--professionally rebuilt including new pistons, rings, timing chain, timing gears, all bearings, freeze plugs, and cylinder head studs. New intake and exhaust valves, valve guides, and of course gaskets.Transmission--all new seals. New overdrive solenoid. Overdrive governor functions correctly.Brakes--drums turned and there remains additional "meat" for these hard-to-find drums. Parking brake repaired with new components.Body--very good original paint with minor scratches, touch-ups, and I'd have to look hard to find dings. Classic post-WWII institutional color scheme. The windows are all intact. The driver's side mirror has a new mirror but it is a bit loose.Interior--original upholstery, not redone at this point. Has the Uniscope and all gauges and lights function. Has the clock option. The radio is a "radio head" which in my opinion would be best connected to a more modern AM radio, I'm not sure an original under dash unit could be located. For those unfamiliar with a "radio head" it is the tuner and volume knobs only with cables to connect to what at the time would have been a substantially larger receiver mounted under the dash in the passenger foot well area.Fuel--The dual fuel/vacuum pump is mounted but the fuel side is currently bypassed and an electric pump is installed near the tank. The tank was de-rusted and is in good condition. A new float is installed and sends a reasonably accurate signal to the gauge. New fuel line.Electrical--Generator and starter rebuilt. Most connections cleaned throughout. Front and rear turn signals de-rusted and confirmed. Misc.--Many other new or refurbished components. Example: I got tired of dealing with the mechanical fuel pumps and will include additional rebuilt ones and any other components I find. I will include a new windshield gasket as there is evidence of a leak.
