What width is your nash frame up front? There are small Nashes & bigger Nashes. I think a stock M2 front end can trim out to 26". Is your frame more?

Don't forget that ir you widen the clip then you will have to widen the rack to keep from having bump steer or a toe in/out problem as the suspension cycles up and down.

No, no. no. You can widen the clip about 4" if I remember and use Fairmont tie rod ends.

forestrytodd stated it correctly, if you widen the crossmember you WILL have to widen the steering rack the same amount (not a practical solution). If you just change the tie-rod length, the relationship between the tie-rod arc and the control arm arcs will be drastically different. Bump steer will be the result.

If the track width is close enough to what you are looking for with the Mustang II front end, narrow the frame at the crossmember area to fit the suspension. If the crossmember is only an inch or so narrower like you state, it will be no problem to fit it into the frame.

I assume you will be using original front fenders?

If so, you need to put those on, and then watch for clearance problems at the top A arms of that front end. I would think it may hit the fenders.

Cool...


Are the cowl lights missing?? There was a set just on ebay a week ago; I don't think they sold. They have "peaks" on the top, just like Nash headlights do.

Hey, I just might ask for a picture of what the door latch looks like ... mine are missing on my 32 nash

This is what I saw on ebay. They look correct for your car "IF" the outer peaked rim can be turned 90 degrees. I think the ones in that auction are put together wrong. Most cowl lights with a "shaft mount" have the shaft vertical like your car does, not horizontal like the ebay ones. That's why I think they are assembled wrong..

So which ebay lights did you buy?.... I have been watching Nash stuff and I don't think I saw any others..

Looks correct to me..


classy looking, too.

The tail light is tough to find. It also has a peaked top, but there are several sizes of Nash cars, so the lights are different sizes.
