1941 Nash Ambassador Six sedan

The 1939-1942 Nash Ambassador Six was the six-cylinder counterpart to the Ambassador Eight, though mounted on a four-inch shorter 121-inch wheelbase in 1939-1940, which the Eight also adopted for 1941-1942.

Like the Eight, the Six was powered by a smooth overhead-valve engine (and also of long-stroke design) and was offered in a similar lineup of body styles.
