While going though some boxes in the attic cubbyhole, I happened across some documentation for a 1952 Nash Statesman 2-door sedan that Dad bought new from a dealership in Detroit. I sold the owner's manual to a used book seller (it was in rough shape), but kept the Owner's Service Policy, the sales receipt, and the insurance policy. The car's total cost was $2602.61, with a base price of $1947.40, factory installed options (weather-eye, foam cushions, cruising gear, two tone paint, reclining seat and Solex glass) totaling $249.10, dealer installed options (radio and antenna) totaling $98.45, a line called “D. and H. (and Fed. Tax or E.O.H.)” costing $178.00, freight or transportation $41.00, other taxable charges $1.35, sales tax $75.46, license fee $20.85, and title transfer fee $1.00. They gave him $1180.61 for his trade-in, a 1950 Dodge 2-door sedan, and another $22.00 was knocked off for “Cash on Deposit”. His monthly payment was $65.35; given the balance due, I'm guessing he made payments for 2 years. His insurance premium was $58.20 for body injury, property damage, and comprehensive coverage. Don't know if that was every 6 months or per year. According to the policy, the dealer's cost for the car was $1624.00. This was the car that Dad had when he married. He must have liked the make, because he bought a new Nash Statesman in 1955, a new Rambler American in 1959, and a used '62 Rambler Classic in 1963.
