Description

Nash built their cars with classic upright styling through 1934 even though other makes were shifting to a rounder, more stream-lined look. Body styles in 1932 included closed sedans, touring cars, victorias, rumble-seat coupes, roadsters, and convertible cabriolets. The 960 series had an ordinary side-valve six, this was a 201.3-cubic-inch engine with 65 horsepower. Prices started at around $1000 in 1930 but were later lowered to the $800-$900 range to spur sales in the Depression-crushed market.. The Nash Six Sedan 960 sold for $845. In spite of sales of only 17,696 for 1932, Nash was the only auto manufacturer except GM to make money in 1932. Nash made six times the profit ($1.3 million) of GM.
