Jay Leno drives his mostly original and unrestored 1950 Nash Ambassador
While the two-tone combination of dark green and black doesn't grab much attention, this Nash is a design-lovers dream with partially hidden wheels on the outside and a fastback that gives the sedan a really attractive look from the rear. The single integrated instrument dial inside is a nice touch, too. With a claimed 115 horsepower from its inline-six engine and automatic transmission, the Ambassador isn't going to win any races, but Jay clearly loves the car. He gives viewers a full walkaround of the old gal, including a trip up the lift to check out its largely original mechanical bits. If you're hankering for a look at a much earlier era of motoring, this video isn't one to miss.
