Has it fine-car engineering throughout? 3. 7s the advertised price the price of the sedan ? T HE Nash Ambassador is not a scaled-down model. These are the largest, finest sedans in the entire Nash line for 1936! They have a 125-inch wheelbase! Compare that with other leading cars in this price class in the chart at the right. The Nash Ambassador has the famous Nash "Twin-Ignition" engine and all of the long-life engineering features usually found only in cars costing hundreds of dollars more. It gives you big, double- acting hydraulic brakes and an all-steel body with steel top! There has been no "skimping" in upholstery or in fittings. The new Ambassador is even more luxurious, even roomier, even more beautifully designed than models formerly priced around $2,000! Yet the prices of these big, luxurious sedans start at S835 and end at $995*! This is unquestionably the year to buy your Nash Ambassador! The Nash Motors Company, Kenosha, Wisconsin.
