|Gallery pick: Pinin Farina Nash Rambler Palm Beach|
The last couple of days, we've been busy adding some more cars to the gallery, and today we'd like to highlight this handsome American bloke in the proverbial Italian suit. Meet the Nash Rambler 'Palm Beach' by Pinin Farina.
During the mid-1950s, Pinin Farina had been experimenting with various "jet-age" themes. The influence of American car design, combined with new aerodynamic insights, inspired Pinin Farina to create some spectacular designs that would pay tribute to the exciting new aerospace technology. This dramatic theme first appeared in 1953 in the PF200, a series of Lancia Aurelia Coupes and Convertibles with a similar design as the Nash Rambler 'Palm Beach'.
Now, after many years of high-profile ownership, public displays around the world and a recent showing at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the 'Palm Beach' is being presented at auction by Gooding & Co. in Amelia Island and will be expected to sell between $700,000.-- and $900,000.--
