1929 NASH Series 430 Special Six Coupe
Here's a real vintage car ... a solid 1929 Nash Series 430 Special Six rumble seat coupe that has came to us for the attention needed to get back on the road after a number of years parked. A much bigger car than most that come to our shop, it has a 116-inch wheelbase, wooden spoke wheels, and a length of almost 16.5 feet. It has a 3-speed manual transmission. This wasn't a restoration project, but a "get 'er running" job. We checked the ignition, cleaned and flushed the fuel system, and had a metal part custom cast for a part of the steering wheel assembly that had disintegrated with age. It was a fun car to work on.
This car features a two-coil, six-cylinder engine ... with TWO spark plugs per cylinder
(One set is in the head, the other set is in the block.)
Like all really early cars, the interior of the Nash Coupe is a study in simplicity. With real wood dash and mohair seats, natch.
