Classic Cars: Know Where to Look for Rust Before Buying

If you're thinking about buying a classic car, you should know where to look for rust and how extensive the repair might be.


Classic Car Overview

HIGHLIGHTS: Wow! Rare, unrestored survivor car in unbelievable condition! The condition of this car is truly stunning. The underside is crazy clean for an 80-year-old Wisconsin car. Even the underside of the floorpans still have paint on them! BODY OVERVIEW: Pulled from hibernation in Wisconsin, this Nash has been part of a private NC collection for several years. The body condition is truly astounding, as this car is as clean and solid as an original 80-year-old car can be. There are some dents and dings to be found, but the fact that this car hasnt seen a restoration in the three-quarters of a century it has existed means it deserves some slack. PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: This car is believed to still be wearing its original paint, and for 80 years old it looks phenomenal. It still shines, and has minimal deterioration for its age. Youll have to see it in person to believe it! INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: When we see survivor cars like this, often the interior condition is the most telling reminder of the vehicles age. Not so for this Nash! While the interior does show some signs of aging, the soft materials are in astonishingly good condition. Even the headliner looks great! Sitting inside this Nash is truly like being in a time machine. MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Mechanically, this car functions as expected. There are some small items that do not work, but the flathead six engine runs smoothly, the transmission shifts well, and it has been preserved beautifully. After it was retrieved, this Nash was fitted with new tires and put into shape mechanically to be enjoyed on occasion without disturbing the originality beyond what was absolutely necessary. The engine bay is remarkably clean for an unrestored car of this vintage, and any collector should be impressed. WHAT YOULL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The originality! Restored cars are wonderful, but its only original once. WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you like fresh, restored vehicles this is probably not for you. DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? This Nash will need a few tweaks, for small items such as the speedometer, temp gauge, heater, and the wipers. WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Any Nash/AMC collector, or anyone looking to own a piece of automotive history for a fair price!
