Although the ad for this 1939 Nash, posted on Vintage Ads, makes only a slight mention of it, one of the neatest features of the pictured sedan was the bed. Introduced in 1936, the rear seat back hinged up, and in doing so opened up the trunk to the passenger compartment. Two adults could sleep with their legs and feet in the trunk, and their heads and shoulders on the rear seat cushions. I saw photos of one for sale a few years ago, and it was a cool-looking car, inside and out.
