Vintage 1951 Nash Ambassador Front End. Nash used the Ambassador name on its plushest models from 1949 to 1957. N-K President George Mason was an outspoken supporter of aerodynamics in car design, and the post war Ambassador is best remembered for its enclosed front wheels. When Nash rolled out its Airflyte body style, Ambassador sales enjoyed a significant gain by selling just four door and two door sedans in the 1949-1951 market place. The Airflytes also featured fully reclining seats that could turn the car into a vehicle capable of sleeping three adults, however this would also earn the dubious distinction of being the make-out automobile of choice for teenagers coming of age in the 1950s. The 1950 Ambassador became the first non-General Motors automobiles to be equipped with GM’s Hydramatic automatic transmissions.

Cadillac first introduced the Hydra-Matic automatic transmission in 1940, the first fully-automatic passenger car transmission to see mass production.  At the time, it was such a revolution that other manufacturers would buy them from General Motors for use in their own models.  Rolls-Royce even acquired the license to build them for their own cars, and did so for 15 years across the 1950s and 1960s.  The transmissions have become far more advanced in the decades since, but the HydraMatic name remains in use even today.
