1952 Nash-Healey roadster
Made by the Nash-Kelvinator Corporation with a drivetrain from their Ambassador line and a European body and chassis. It was America’s first sports car of the post-war era. The Nash-Healey was the product of a partnership between Nash-Kelvinator Corporation and British automaker Donald Healey. In 1952 it was styled by Pinin Farina and the subassembly made in Italy. There were only 62 built.
It had a 252 cu in (4.1 L) engine with American-made twin Carter carburetors producing 140 hp.
Nash engines and drive train were shipped from Kenosha, Wisconsin to England for installation in the Healey-fabricated frames. Healey then shipped the rolling stock to Italy where Pininfarina constructed the body and assembled the finished product. Finally Farina exported the cars to America. The result was a $5,908 car in 1953, while the new Chevrolet Corvette was $3,513.
According to wikipedia a roadster owned by Dick Powell was driven by George Reeves, as Clark Kent, in four TV episodes of the Adventures of Superman.
