I think the one on the left is a 3 window coupe. It looks like the same car is in the background in the third photo.

Thanks all, There appears to be no doubt that they are Nash's. I had checked Nash but none of the images I saw were right, although it was one I had only taken a quick look at and hadn't checked several years of. Either I didn't hit the correct year or didn't get any pictures of the right model. Also when I checked I hadn't noticed the raised part on the front panels as a distinguishable feature.

I sent a couple of the pictures to the Nash Car Club of America, so I thought I'd share the response that I got back from them.


Hi Mark,

Thanks for the great photos. Both are business coupes, as far as I can
tell, but they could both be that or one of two other configurations
offered for the 1937 coupe. One was a rumble seat version with the
coupe, and the other was called an Opera coupe, and it had jump seats
that could be folded down, in the area behind the front seat, for small
passengers. In the business coupe, this rear area was a shelf unit behind
the front seat that extended all the way to the rear window. There were
some shelves and the spare tire was carried there also, leaving a very
large trunk area for sample cases or products.

The car with the vertical bars in its grill, has the wrong grill, that is
actually for an Ambassador. The car with the correct grill has a unique
bumper guard, which I have on one of my 1937's. I have two Ambassadors.
One is a business coupe, and the other is a 4 dr sedan.

These are great photos. Thank you for sharing them.

Its interesting to see the "header pipes" fixed to the hood.
Since those hoods sided opened up all the way from the
fender area, I wonder how those "pipes" were attached?
Interesting, very interesting.

Thanks again,

I checked out Mr. Bracewell's web site. A lot of neat Nashs on there. I always liked the Metropolitans but those Nash Suburbans are sort of neat too.

Thanks for posting his response.

Bill:

One of our members up here - but over in the Halifax area has a pair of Nash Metropolitans. I am not sure if Bruce is still planning on restoring them or if they will be going on the block.

Those "outside exaust pipes" were non-funtional, just decoration. When I was younger, one of the high school boys had a '41 Chev. coupe with the "outside pipes" as well as the eye shades on the headlights. The eye shades had a pocket on top and in the center to capture a plastic marble, ususlly blue or red. The accessories could be ordered from companies like J.C. Whitnes and others.
