From my investigation, this is a ‘47 or ’48 Nash. I could not find this emblem among those seen of Nash’s of those years, but the grill and lights are alike to the ones of which I could locate pictures. If I am in error, I invite any corrections.

Now, from a Facebook friend of mine, I was led to this site and by looking through the photos of the various models of Nash’s shown there, I am now convinced this is a pre-WWII model as all the models made post war had park lights just inside the headlights. The photos of the ones I thought most resembled this vehicle were small and could not be enlarged, so the emblem is still a mystery.

    Beautiful capture!!! Looking at the grill, I would say it is a 1946 or 1947. 1948’s grill was a little different ~ Lynn

  • I defer to anyone with greater expertise! Thanks, Lynn. Where were you 3 weeks ago? ;)

    I must have been a sleep! My Dad had a 1939 and a 1941 and I had a 1949 Anbassador and a 1950 Statesman. Both great cars ~ Lynn

  • I’m guessing the Rambler had not come out then! ;) I saw your pic of your Customized 1949 Packard with admiration, both for the photo and the subject material. Great job on both!

    Thanks for looking up my old Packard and me. It really didn’t seem that long ago. Rambler came out in 1951. I really enjoy these classics ~ Lynn

  • I came along a bit after that! LOL

    Actually the Rambler made it’s first appearance in 1950 ~ Lynn
