I am selling my wonderful 1955 Nash Rambler, he last year of this make and model. If you are shopping for a classic car in this era, ou will already know that 1956 and newer Ramblers are plentiful, he 1955 is very rare. A quick story, bought the car about a year ago from an elderly gentleman. I had full intentions of bringing it to excellent condition, ut two back surgeries brought me to a halt. That is why I am selling the car. Here is what I know:
  • The body is very nice and maybe has one flaw I can see. I show it in the photos.
  • The engine runs smooth as does any straight six, bullet proof engine.
  • I bought a NOS carburetor and put it on, efore my surgeries.
  • The interior is wonderful. The headliner is very nice and the dash looks good.
  • Tires seem fair, ut could be replaced if it becomes a daily driver, p to the new owner.
  • The exhaust was redone and it runs a good old cherry bomb muffler to give it that old school rumble sound. I took a photo of the underside to see the muffler system.
  • There is no apparent rust on the body, ut it seems there are a couple of minor patches on the floor right side.
  • I drove it for awhile and then the brakes started to tighten. So, stopped driving it and bought a whole new set of wheel cylinders and a new master cylinder. My physical state has me not being able to install these, ut they come with the car for the new owner. Once installed you have a great driver.
  • The previous owner drove the car into his garage and dented the front bumper and broke the front grill. The broken grill comes with the car, f someone wants to weld it. I also shopped the nation and found another grill, ut it does not fit right. I am giving it to the new owner, s well.
  • I have all the parts and the NASH badge in the trunk.
  • The body has been repainted and the top has the original paint.
  • There is a crack, am showing in a photo, n the driver's side window. This can stay or it is an easy replacement, f you want.
  • The underside is excellent, say it needs new shocks.
  • What it needs is the new owner to lay carpeting (I am including beige carpet I bought for the car).
  • It needs to have a loose wire or the flasher unit replaced, he turn signals do not blink.
  • And, s I wrote, he brakes done, ut again, am including all the cylinders.
  • When you finish these updates, ou will have a awesome car, he one I wanted to drive, yself!
  • There are two minor paint cracks on the right side front fender. This is NOT fender damage and there is NO body putty. I showed this by putting a magnet, hen a glove, gainst the body and the magnet sticks strong. These cracks must have come from when the previous owner hit the bumper. You can buy a can of matching spray paint at a local auto paint store and fix it nicely.
This is a wonderful car, had big plans for it in my future, efore my surgeries and I would love to see it go to an enthusiast who would enjoy the car. My reserve is low for this car and it's condition. Average retail is about $8500 and I am reducing my reserve for the little work needed to make it road worthy, gain.If you are the winner of the auction, here will be a $500 deposit due immediately and the balance we will arrange to have deposited or sent within 72 hours. If not, will contact the follow up bidders. This is a very rare 1955 Nash Rambler Custom four door. You may not see another one for quite some time, hich is the reason I bought it a year ago, love the character of this car and the beautiful lines and the beautiful Pinin Farina styling.You are welcome to contact me through Ebay about the car and offers. I am not technical at all and a once a month weekend mechanic at my best. So, f you have those "car expert" questions, he answer is "I don't know".

You can see the sun visor is missing the fabric, t is in the car. The new owner needs to glue or sew it back on. The fabric is in great shape.
