EXCLUSIVE: Explosive 1936 Nash

This 1936 Nash has had an interesting life, especially after it was used for an explosive scene in a movie. It was disassembled prior to filming for safety to ensure the car could be rebuilt afterward. It’s going to need to be put back together, but it’s already had the engine rebuilt and it could be a great project. So be sure to message Reader Red C with any questions or offers!

What Makes It Special? This Nash was bought for a movie project. It was totally disassembled and then spectacularly exploded!

Body Condition: The body is actually in great shape except for grill and left front fender. Although the fender is repairable.

Mechanical Condition: The car was totally rebuilt with approximately 800 miles on it. Interior was partially redone. The complete engine rebuild was done at great expense.

That was a pretty spectacular explosion, but given that it was for a movie, it’s more for looks than for destruction. While there might be some fire damage, it doesn’t appear to have had any significant impact on the car. And since the car was taken apart, the important bits weren’t damaged and could be reused. For $3,500, this seems like a great buy either to restore or as a parts car. So, be sure to take a closer look and make Red an offer!

  • Asking Price: $3,500
  • Location: Northridge, California

    My only question would be if it was a decent restorable car to begin with why let it be half destroyed for a movie

    I know nothing about how the movie industry works. I just question why the producers or whoever made the movie didn’t just buy a lousy car and really torch it and use this one for the non-explosive scenes? They would have paid a pretty penny I would think to have had someone disassemble the car the way it was left. This one leaves me shaking my head.

    Looks like it was stashed away in a bone yard with other old cars, just left to die. Someone will surely purchase this relic and restore it to former glory.
    God bless America
