55 rambler wagon and 58 suburban in England

Hi everyone, I'm Wayne and i've got a 55 Hudson Rambler wagon that used to be my daily intil the front suspension wore out which started a rebuild as a mild custom (on the outside anyway!) it's now got a narrowed jaguar front suspension (70's XJ6) and a Ford 9" rear, wide whites and painted smoothie wheels with trim rings , i'm building a 383 stroker chevy which will either end up in the rambler or my suburban , which is a 1958 and will become a gasser over the winter and both my wagons will be doing duty as tow cars for my dragster,
I look forward to being part of your forum
Cheers
Wayne

Welcome to the forum. Do you have any pictures of your Nash? I found this picture on line, does your car look like this?

That's a sweet Hudson/Rambler wag, and the Burb, priceless! All windows too. Must be rare.
