The brochure for this 1954 Nash Airflyte promised 75% easier handling and parking… with optional Nash power steering. I’d imagine the steering wheel didn’t turn all that far, what with those close-quarters front wheel openings; and nothing is mentioned here about 75% more difficult tire changing (only guessing here). Still, a handsome car for its time. And I like the dealer sticker on the trunklid (Melvin Nash of Mitchellville, Maryland), which hearkens back to an era when car dealers put more effort than a license plate frame into back-of-the-car marketing. Saw this one (and many others) a few years ago at the Grand Nashionals which were held in Batavia.
