Throughout its history, Nash remained one of the financially strongest independent auto manufacturers. Although under appreciated by collectors today, Nash was a truly innovative automobile manufacturer, introducing many advances that have been universally adopted today. Among its many innovations were: fresh air heating and ventilating systems (1938); modern unit construction bodies in a low priced mass produced car (1941); the first successful postwar compact car, the Rambler (1950); the first combined air conditioning and heating system, dash mounted (1954); reclining seats (1950); and convertible beds (1936). Sharp black & white photography and authoritative captions tell the story.
