Auction House
Chassis no. 2109. Black with black top over red leather. 1496/68hp Meadows inline four, dual SU carburetors, 4-speed chain drive, wire wheels, folding windshield, dual aeroscreens, fishtail exhaust, outside exhaust head pipes, single sidemount spare.

Evaluation: Meadows 4ED engine replacing the original Blackburne. First delivered to Hugh Hunter with five subsequent owners, most recently the late Ian Trainer who bought it in the early 1960s. Trainer raced and toured it extensively with accompanying photo and other documentation. Sound old paint, worn, creased old upholstery, grubby carpets, dirty engine. Dormant since the early naughts but highly original, recently recommissioned but stated to need a clutch, electrical wiring, attention to correct low oil pressure, wheels and tires.

Bottom Line: It may need a lot, but a nut-and-bolt restoration would obscure the plain history of the car apparent in its dirt, grime, and wear. This ‘Nash is a great example of a category that collectors these days line up for: old and scruffy but still amenable to being driven and largely complete. In this case a clear history and excellent provenance add further value. Both the buyer and the seller did well in this case.
