NASH SIX (1934-39)

Saloon, sports saloon, brougham, saloon de luxe, business coupé, cabriolet, 4-seater coupé.

Long overdue rationalisation of the company's range, the Six was called the Big Six in '34, the Advanced Six in '35, and the Ambassdor Six thereafter. Jointed axle ifs was listed in '34, though it's unlikely that any reached these shores, and that nasty Speedstream styling was new that year, '35s have Aeroform styling ('adding up to one of the most unpleasing cars of an unpleasing era' according to the late Michael Sedgwick), optional overdrive and 120ins wheelbase extended to 125ins in '36, then down to 121ins for remaining production. Hydraulic brakes new for '36 , and styling changes as for eights, late models available with a 4.7-litre Perkins diesel engine giving 75mph and 37mpg.
