This adorable car’s restoration was just completed. Spending its first 43 years in the northwest, the current Florida owner purchased the car in 2002 in Washington State. The car was in original condition and showed lifetime care by its owners.
Over the last eight years, this car was restored cosmetically and all mechanicals refreshed. With only 63K original miles, the engine needed only to be resealed, not rebuilt. These cars get 35+ miles per gallon; a car created in the 1950s to compete with the VW Bug.
The Metropolitan was introduced in 1953. At only about 12.5 feet in length and weighing about 1,800 pounds, this car was dubbed the “Baby Nash.”
In 1959 the Series IV version was introduced, the first of the Metropolitan’s with a rear trunk lid. Prior series could only access the trunk through the fold down rear seat.
This lovely car received a brand new base coat / clear coat repaint in its original Autumn Yellow over Frost White. Beautiful new black with yellow pinstripe cloth seats combined with white vinyl.
The car is equipped with the original 1489cc 4 cylinder engine and original three speed manual transmission. This car does not smoke. It runs, shifts, accelerates and drives like new.
