Description

Nash Motors Company was an American automobile manufacturer based in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in the United States. The Company was lunched in 1916 by Charles Nash, resigning the presidency of General Motors.

By 1919 Nash was selling 27.000 cars a year and in 1920 Nash expanded into the luxury class. The most fabulous Nash of all debuted in 1930. It was the model Eight, company's top of the line, dual-ignition overhead-valve inline-eight that developed 100 bhp.

The quality of this model proofed also the fact, that GM and Nash were the only companies to make a profit during the Great Depression in 1932.
