Foreign Service – 1955 Nash Ambassador

May 30, 2014

Due to the reputation of cars like the 1970s AMC Ambassador for being ugly and frumpy, and the 1950s Nash Ambassador for being weird and frumpy, most car enthusiasts might not know that Ambassador is actually a storied name originally applied to cars of a certain level of prestige. In fact, Prince Wilhelm of Sweden and Norway purchased one in 1927, and from a style perspective, they seem to stack up with contemporary models from the three Ps (Packard, Pierce-Arrow, and Peerless) and the Cord-Auburn end of the CAD triumvirate. But we’re not here to talk about past glories, because those cars are well out of the four-figure price range. Instead, take a look at this 1955 Nash Ambassador, for sale for $3500 in Redwood City, CA.
