This 1951 Nash now 63 years old is totally original, as well as minimally driven which adds dramatically to the market value.. . This is reflected in my appraisal.

Oska: My personal aside. Yes, he's asking on the high side, however, the damn Nash is truly a jewel which has not been mutilated or basterdised in any way.

I'd drive it anywhere. Of the 250 + cars I value every year, this is the most original, as new example I've had the pleasure to value. in a long time. The ball is now in your court.

Believe me, this you and me talking. Rudy knows I do good work, however, we do not sleep together. I am proud of my reputation for integrity. My Web Site : www.collectorcarappraiser.com Photos to follow
