1957 Nash Metropolitan -- Additional Info:

With its intricate two-tone, international history, and overall vintage style, this 1957 Nash Metropolitan is a nicely restored classic that's memorable wherever it goes. The Caribbean Blue and Snowberry White is factory-correct, and this is truly a great classic presentation. After all, the full-length trim line and roof line provide distinct barriers for the two-tone. And you can tell they invested nicely in both a high-gloss respray of the paint and the shining brightwork - right down to...the Nash wheel covers. The total effect is this little Met invokes the same level of nostalgia as Nash's bigger cars. And this mighty appeal has been part of this car since day one. American Motors had them built in England by BMC. These small car specialists were able to create a far more substantial package - right down to the continental kit - than American companies could do for compacts at the time. And so the result was a cool import with American flair and a domestic name. Inside are more great investment in keep this looking like a proper '50s classic. The houndstooth seats give this a great look and comfy cloth setup. And these are correct all the way down to the button-top presentation. And the two-tone side panels, white headliner, black carpeting, and black dash give this a fully color-coordinated presentation you'll love to show off. It even has the right period-correct features like the heater and an AM radio still on display. The split bench seat offers a surprising amount of room for two in this small classic. These coupes do also have a back seat. It's not exactly roomy for passengers, but its coordinating houndstooth makes for a well-presented storage shelf and access to the trunk. The driver gets one large main gauge pod dominated by a speedometer, but since the car was sourced from Britain, it happens to be a Smiths readout. So just imagine the looks on people's faces as you compare this Metropolitan to Jaguars and Aston Martins. The 1.5-liter came from Austin in England, so you know there's some fun in this car. This is the correct motor for the Met, and since the B-Series was quite popular in England, parts availability is good and inexpensive. It's not built for all out speed, but these are the people who really know about how to get the most out of a small powerplant. That's especially true with the control you get from the three-speed manual transmission. So you get the classic American feeling of column-shifted action. But now it comes with unmistakably feeling of a nippy and nimble European on the road. No wonder these Metropolitans have a devoted following. The sale comes with a history file, service manuals, and receipts documenting years of recent investments all over this car. This is a distinctive classic with a bright personality, call today! *Titled as a 1957 Rambler
