The 1952 Nash Rambler
The 1952 Nash Rambler was offered in a variety of bodystyles, all having two doors and seating for five. The list included a utility wagon, convertible, two versions of the station wagon, and a Country Club. The Country Club was the most popular with a total of 25,785 examples produced and selling for around $2000. Power was from a six-cylinder, L-head engine that displaced 172.6 cubic-inches and produced 82 horsepower.
The Country Club is considered the first two-door compact car to be built in the United States. They were unique automobiles with styling that segregated them from the rest of the market.
This example is painted in Caribbean Blue and Champaign Ivory. The interior is grey. It has traveled a mere $29,000 miles since new and is in great condition, showing no rust, and still wearing its original interior. It has a six-cylinder engine, three-speed gearbox, Continental kit, two-tone paint, and white-wall tires.
