***SOLD*** 1960 Metropolitan Convertible – $8500 OBO

This is a TRUE BARN FIND very original California black plate Metropolitan. It was pulled out of a storage shed where it had sat for decades, having last been on the road in 1988. The body is laser straight with absolutely NO rust and NO previous repairs. Much of the original paint appears to be still on the car, with some evidence of a partial respray at some point. The single stage paint was been cleaned and buffed, but there are several chips and nicks all over from time. The only damage is a small dent on the driver side door. The gaps and body seams are all original and perfect. The doors shut and latch smoothly under their own weight which is near impossible to find on a convertible. The interior still has all the original upholstery, although at nearly 60 years old it will need to be redone. The convertible top frame is complete and also included, but not installed. It will need a new top.

We ran a compression test on the engine that showed all four cylinder between 145 and 155 psi. After changing the oil and filter, rebuilding the carburetor and fuel pump and flushing out all the old gas, we easily got it started and running smoothly. The cooling system was flushed and the thermostat and all radiator hoses changed. A new generator and battery were installed. The brakes were completely gone through with new master cylinder, wheel cylinders, hoses, shoes and drums. The clutch master and slave cylinders and hose were also replaced.

This is one of the cleanest, most original Metropolitans we have ever seen, and these are all we work on. It is also the most desirable model, being a convertible Series IV (high compression engine, wing windows and trunk lid). With a small amount of additional TLC this car can be a great little driver quality cruiser for ice cream runs, car shows, cruise nights, cars & coffee or whenever you want to get a lot of smiles and thumbs-ups. It could also make a great candidate for a restoration as there is no rust repair or bodywork needed.

***SOLD*** 1959 Metropolitan Convertible – $13,500 OBO

This 1959 Metropolitan convertible is a mildly customized older restoration from the early ’90s with only one owner since then. The car has been lovingly cared for, regularly started and driven, and serviced annually. The “burnt orange” paint still shines very well with some minor imperfections. The body and underside are solid with no major rust issues. The car started life as a hardtop and was was treated to a professional conversion with strengthening done to the structure of the car. The interior was done in white vinyl with black carpet, and is all still intact with no rips or tears. The vinyl is a bit weathered, but could be enjoyed as is. The electrical system including the wipers, heater, all the lights, etc is all functional. The engine was just tuned up and runs great. Registration is current and clean title is in hand.
