1950 Nash Sales Brochure, "The Smartest, Safest Convertible in the World"

Summary

Nash trumpeted the virtues of its Rambler Convertible Landau in this 1950 sales brochure. Nash tried to make the Rambler appeal to everyone by giving it a little bit of everything -- even seemingly contradictory things: economy and luxury, convertible and hardtop, small enough to park and big enough to seat five, as safe as a sedan and as sexy as a sports car.
