The British Nash Motor Company noticed that post-WWII American
automotive producers were all under the spell of "bigger is
better". Nash sought to develop an economical and smaller
alternative that really didn't exist in North America. With help
from Detroit based independent designer, William Flajole, and some
styling help from Pinin Farina Nash created and exported the
Metropolitan. It was marketed as a simple 2nd car for the family
when needed. It's known for its size of course, but also as being
the first car that was marketed to women. In a time where this car
just may appear as tiny for being tiny, the reviews came back
overwhelmingly positive on the styling and performance leaving a
lasting legacy in the classic car market today.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this thoughtfully restored, strong running 1957 Nash Metropolitan for your consideration. The times have changed and although we like to think bigger is better at times, this car is a love at first sight and it only gets better when behind the wheel of this cool little ride! The car came from Arizona and was restored once it got to Michigan. It has fresh paint, new interior, new fuel pump and a new battery. The Nash rides on Firestone whitewall tires mounted to factory steel wheels with correct hub caps. It also has a rear mounted spare tire. The 1500cc 4 cylinder engine fires right up and shifts as it should with a 3 speed on the tree.
