While Pinin Farina’s designs for the rest of the Nash lineup in the early 1950s might have missed the mark just a little bit (though they certainly were distinctive…), it seems very few people feel the same way about the design house’s work on the Nash-Healey, Kenosha’s toe-dip into the burgeoning post-war sports car trend. This particular 1953 Nash-Healey for sale on Hemmings.com appears rather well preserved, though also well worn. So would you keep it in its current Driveable Dream state, or would you treat it to a thorough restoration? From the seller’s description:
This 1953 Nash-Healey has remained in near original condition. This vehicle is believed to be a two-owner car. Other than two repaints in the first year of ownership the remainder of work performed has been maintenance of general wear items. This Nash-Healey has only traveled 56,990 in its 57 years of ownership.
This Nash-Healey is in very original condition with only two previous owners. This car was originally painted Robins Egg Blue but with the renowned paint problems the Nash-Healeys had, this car was repainted shortly after leaving the lot due to cracking of the original finish. In addition to the noted condition, this 57-year-old Nash-Healey has a very desirable option package that includes convertible top, side curtains, 3-speed manual with overdrive and Dual Jetfire Ambassador Six motor.
