Classic Car Overview

This 1959 Nash Metropolitan convertible is a cool little car with an international pedigree. Despite its small size, it has a huge enthusiast following for its wonderful 50s style. So you get a drop-top cruiser with an overall appeal thats far larger than the small size and small price. The Metropolitan had American design flair with its full chrome front end, whitewall tires, and continental kit on the rear, but its packed into a European size. Thats what makes these cars so cool today. A Series IV model like this is the final evolution and arguably the best of the breed. These were the ones that have the chrome down the side, which also provided for a dividing line for the two-tone finish. This one carries its correct Mardi Gras Red and Frost White colors. It has been resprayed later in life to make sure this one has a bright style. And you can tell there have been the right investments in thoughtful quality. Its in everything from the like-new white convertible top, to the way the doors close with confidence. One of the best tricks a small car can ever do is feel like a big car on the inside. The wide bench seat up front with split seatbacks does just that. Its large, comfortable, and on any sunny day, the headroom is unlimited. The interior is also an overall handsome setup with a two-tone seat w/contrast stitching, matching two-tone door panels, a thin/grippy steering wheel, and a big Smiths gauge in front of you. This does have a rear seat, but most will agree its best for storage. And speaking of storage, the Series IV are the only ones to get a proper trunk (its even currently filled with memorabilia and spare components.) While the whole setup feels quite vintage, they did add a modern AM/DM/CD stereo w/aux input. After all, top-down mooting deserves the best in driving music. The engine bay continues the cars authentic and well-presented style. These were built by Austin in England, and their 1489 cc inline-four has a reputation for a rugged engine that delivers spirited performance. It fires up and runs with the feeling of proper care today, and since this was a popular motor in Europe, its inexpensive and easy to keep running strong well into the future. The three-speed manual transmission has light action, and it helps make the little Met feel nippy. The sale comes complete with the owners manual, service manuals, and maintenance records. This is the interesting, small, and striking classic drop-top that is also quite affordable. Call today!!!
