For Sale: 1957 Nash Metropolitan in Cadillac, Michigan

Vehicle Description

This is a beautifully restored 1957 Nash Metropolitan 2-door hardtop featuring the 1.5L (1,500cc) 4 cylinder motor and 3-speed manual transmission on the column; also referred to as 'Three on the Tree'. The vehicle has been both cosmetically and mechanically restored and it shows. The car drives amazing, shifts smooth (for what it is). It does not have any concerning noises and does not excessively smoke on startup, on idle, or while driving. Visually, this car is the star of the streets! Although small, its eye-catching two-tone Sunburst Yellow and Snowberry White and unique bodystyling catches the attention of everyone, young and old, car junkies and otherwise. The car has been professionally repainted after countless hours of bodywork to get the car's lines as straight as a show quality vehicle. This is not saying the vehicle is of concourse quality, however, it is an excellent driver! Moving inside, the interior seats, headliner and door panels have been fully reupholstered in black and white vinyl (same style as from the factory without the Houndstooth fabric). The carpets are close to being complete however, require some minor finishing work. The floors would benefit from some undercoating to prohibit rust from causing issues later on in the vehicle's life. In the engine compartment, the motor has been completely rebuilt professionally by a reputable shop. The transmission and all other major mechanical components have been replaced, rebuilt, or repaired as needed making this a very solid driver you could drive anywhere without hesitation. The only non-functioning components of the vehicle are the odometer and fuel gauge. The odometer stopped working not long ago and all mileage since has been recorded on paper. The fuel gauge should work with a simple reset of the float. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a one of a kind vehicle in one of the rarest colors produced!
