The Nash 600 was produced by the Nash-Kelvinator Corporation in 1940-1942 and 1945-1949, after which it was renamed the Nash Statesman. The car was positioned in the low-price segment of the market, and its name comes from the car’s ability to travel 970 km (600 miles) on a single tank of gas. The Nash 600 was introduced for the 1941 model year and became the first mass-produced unibody automobile built in the United States. It was available as a 2-door coupe and sedan and 4-door sedan and fastback sedan. The car was powered by a 2.8-liter I6 engine with 82 hp (61 kW) and had a 3-speed manual transmission.
