Charlie Nash was one of the most successful managers in the early U.S. auto industry, rising from cushion-stuffing at Billy Durant's carriage company in Flint to the presidency of General Motors before setting out on his own forming Nash Motors in 1916 and building that company into one of the leaders in the medium-priced field. His prudent management style didn't hinder Nash from innovative products, however, including a series of overhead valve inline eight-cylinder engines that complemented modern styling and design. This 1932 Nash 980 Convertible Victoria a wonderful example of the quality, design and value that Nash provided, qualities that along with Charlie Nash's good management resulted in Nash being the only automaker other than General Motors to post a profit in 1932. It received a complete restoration several years ago in its very attractive livery of Dark Green body, Black fenders, pale green accent, green coachline and light green wheels with wide whitewall tires set off by an inviting brown leather interior and tan cloth top. The convertible victoria coachwork (four seats with long doors and blind quarters) is especially attractive, fits tightly on the 121" wheelbase and accommodates a body color luggage trunk between the rear fenders. The dual side-mounts have tan cloth covers with Nash emblem matching the hubcaps' emblems. It shows little use and good care since the restoration and still can be shown in local shows and events where its unusually attractive coachwork and subtle colors will bring admiration and appreciation.
