This Nash Standard lived up to that slogan when it was new. At 90 years old, it remains in solid and great overall original shape. The carâ€™s black paint is in overall great shape, considering the carâ€™s age; the windows are clear and crack-free while the carâ€™s lights (including its dual cowl lights) are in good shape, including the Brown Bi-Lite driverâ€™s side taillight.The engine bay is very tidy (note the wood firewall) and out back is full-size Firestone spare tire but no wheel. The carâ€™s bi-level chrome bumpers look great. Seaman Body Corporation of Milwaukee, Wisconsin handled car bodies for Nash, which had its assembly plants in nearby Kenosha.This Nash rolls on Firestone gum-dipped tires, size 4.75/5.00-20 at all four corners. Each tire is mounted to a yellow wood-spoke artillery wheel. The wheels and tires are all in very good order. The car has a 112.25-inch wheelbase. Under the vee-shaped hood is a 184 CID L-head inline six-cylinder engine bolted to a three-speed sliding gear manual transmission and backed by a 4.7:1 rear end.Inside, the carâ€™s brown mohair upholstery is in overall great shape; the front and rear bench seats look great. In back are a blanket rail and a foot bar. Thereâ€™s no carpet to cushion anyoneâ€™s feet but the headliner above is in great condition. A four-spoke steering wheel faces the driver while the inner door panels and dashboard are all in good, original order. A floor-mounted shift lever completes the interior. During the late 1920s, the Standard Six was Nashâ€™s entry-level series. It resembled the Special and Advanced Sixes but the Standard had a shorter wheelbase and a smaller engine. It also had the five-passenger Style 428 landau sedan with its formal rear quarters. Competition to this Nash in 1929 included Dodgeâ€™s Six Series DA and Oldsmobileâ€™s F-29 Landau, among many others.
