***SOLD*** 1959 Metropolitan Convertible – $11,500 OBO
1959 Nash (AMC) Metropolitan. This car came from Oklahoma after sitting in a garage for several years. We replaced all the brake components (master cylinder, wheel cylinders, hoses, shoes, drums), rebuilt the clutch master cylinder, replaced the front shocks and tightened up some loose steering components, cleaned out the fuel system and rebuilt the carburetor, took care of some engine and exhaust leaks and did a tune-up and oil change, replaced the radiator hoses and flushed the cooling system, resealed the rear axle and changed the gear oil in the rear axle and trans. The paint is decent but older and has some issues. The interior is in nice shape. There is some rust underneath the car and some evidence of previous repairs, but nothing major affecting any main structural areas. The car runs and drives very well and can be enjoyed as-is or driven while fixing up even more.
***SOLD*** 1958 Metropolitan – $4,900 OBO
1958 Nash (AMC) Metropolitan. Very nice interior. The paint job is not the best and it and has some issues. The car is originally from Oklahoma and it has rust issues underneath with some evidence of prior repairs. It came to us running and driving but needed some work. We replaced the main wiring harness along with some bulbs and switches. We replaced all the brake components (master cylinder, wheel cylinders, hoses, shoes), rebuilt the carburetor & fuel pump, replaced all the radiator hoses and flushed the cooling system. Lastly we changed the oil and filter. This is a complete running/driving car that can be enjoyed as-is with some TLC or driven while fixing up even more.
***SOLD*** 1954 Nash Metropolitan – $15,900 OBO
Rare early production convertible just pulled out of 20-year storage. This is a solid, rust-free California car that was restored in the early 1990s and seldom driven before being parked in a clean garage. To get it running again, we went though the fuel system, re-sealing the tank and rebuilding the carburetor & fuel pump. We completely rebuilt the brakes with a new master cylinder, rebuilt wheel cylinders & new shoes. We flushed the cooling system and replaced the water pump, thermostat and all hoses. We resealed the axles and replaced all suspension bushings, front & rear, with polyurethane. We did a full tune-up and adjusted the valves, and the original 1200A engine runs like a champ! All chrome is very nice. The single stage paint shines very well with some minor defects from age. The custom interior and convertible top are in very good shape.
***SOLD*** 1961 Metropolitan – $6,900 OBO
Very original 1961 Nash Metropolitan, runs and drives well with a lot of recent work done. Owned and cared for by the same family since 1970. The interior has been redone recently in a period-correct black & white houndstooth and white vinyl. The paint is faded and there are some small areas of rust in the typical spots, but nothing major. The engine starts right up and everything works like it should. This is a fun car to enjoy as-is, or drive while you fix it up. Recent work includes:
-Gas tank cleaned & resealed
-New sending unit installed
-Cooling system flushed
-Clutch master cylinder replaced
***SOLD*** 1954 Hudson Metropolitan Custom Convertible– $35,000
This gorgeous Metropolitan started as a rare Hudson model and spent most of its life as a stock, well-cared for California car. Four years ago it began a full rotisserie “resto-mod” rebuild. Every single nut and bolt was removed from the car and the shell was stripped to bare metal. The frame was reinforced, then the whole car was sprayed in metallic teal paint and then buffed to a showroom shine. The drivetrain was replaced with a Ford 2.3 liter 4 cylinder engine and C-4 automatic transmission which were both fully rebuilt and detailed. An aluminum 4-row radiator and electric fan keep it running cool in all conditions. The rebuilt front suspension & steering with MG Midget front disc brakes make it a pleasure to drive. The MG Midget 3.90 differential allows you to cruise comfortably on the highway. The Magnaflow exhaust is well-mannered, but has a growl when you step on it. A new Painless Wiring harness ensures all the electrical components work as they should. The interior is completely custom with color-matched vinyl complimented by tan upholstery and rich loop carpet. The original radio has been converted to AM/FM with an AUX input. Everything was rebuilt or replaced with less than 500 miles. Every inch of this car is pristine including the fully detailed undercarriage.
The car was chosen for STREET RODDER MAGAZINE’S TOP 100 CARS IN THE NATION 2017
***SOLD*** 1960 Metropolitan Convertible – $35,000 OBO
We are offering a gorgeous 1960 Nash Metropolitan Convertible that just received a complete nut and bolt restoration. It is one of the best examples you will see of the most desirable “Series IV” convertibles. This car came to us as a rock solid, straight and rust-free California car. It was completely stripped down and every component, nut and bolt was removed to prepare the car for paint. Minimal body work was needed, and the car was painted in its original Autumn Yellow over Frost White using the high quality single stage paint, as original, then wet sanded and buffed to a beautiful shine. All the chrome was stripped and triple plated, and all the stainless was straightened and polished. All other components of the car were completely disassembled, cleaned, and rebuilt or refurbished using new parts where available. Everything was painted or powder coated before reassembly. The engine and transmission were professionally rebuilt to factory specifications. The steering, suspension and brakes were all completely rebuilt. New fuel and brake lines were installed, and the whole car was re-wired with a new lacquer coated braid-over-strand harness as original. The interior was finished in a perfect reproduction of the original upholstery fabric and heat-seamed vinyl. Brand new Firestone wide whitewall bias-ply tires were installed. Every effort was made to keep the car as original as possible, with a few slight changes and upgrades. Polyurethane suspension bushings were used for better handling and longevity. Black carpet was installed in the interior as an more comfortable and luxurious option over the original rubber floor mats. We chose a convertible top, boot, and spare tire cover in white instead of the original black as a more attractive option. Everything on this car looks and works as well or better than when it rolled off the production line.
***SOLD*** 1960 Metropolitan Convertible – $25,000 OBO
This gorgeous 1960 Nash Metropolitan Convertible is a terrific example of the most desirable “Series IV” car, with the high-compression 1500cc engine, vent windows and trunk lid (believe it or not, the earlier cars did not have a trunk lid). This car was lovingly restored over the course of 8 years by a long-time Metropolitan aficionado who was very active in the Southern California-based Metropolitan Owner’s Club, Ltd. The body is laser-straight and free of rust. This car features custom paint and upholstery among other tasteful custom details, while maintaining the original body and drive train. The rear end features SUPER RARE dealer-optioned reverse lights! Upgrades such as a Weber carburetor, front disc brakes and polyurethane suspension bushings make for a better driving and handling car over stock. Everything is in working order, and it needs nothing but to be enjoyed.
