A spectacular 1930 Nash 494 Straight Eight sedan seven seater limosine with Sedanca DeVille bodywork. The car was originally owned by Frederic S Bennett, the Englishman famed for reversing the fortunes of Cadillac 100 years ago by winning the Dewar Trophy in 1908 and for completing the Bennett Run in 1903 and 1953.
