Car description

1958 Nash Metropolitian that was restored 16 years ago by a avid Nash collector.This 1958 Nash Metropolitan was fully restored and documented in 2003. Since the restoration it has been sparingly driven. The previous owner who performed the restoration was a Nash fanatic having attended many car shows to display his personal example.

This 1958 Nash is a beautiful example that has been well preserved. During the restoration the engine went through a full rebuilt and still runs beautifully today. Vehicle has always been well cared for and serviced. Most recently it had an oil, filter change and the carburetor adjusted.

"The Metro, as they were lovingly called, sported an Austin A-40 4 cylinder overhead valve 1.5 liter engine with a Zenith downdraft carburetor and aluminum pistons.Pretty advanced for the time.Exotic two-tone colors were the hot ticket in the mid 50's, and the Metro's really looked adorable with their bright two color paint treatments!After World War II, as car production started to get back to normal, the British auto makers started back building sports cars, many of which found themselves in the USA.Here in America, Nash Kelvinator Corporation was grinding out "plain vanilla" Nash and Rambler cars, as fast as they could build them, but they wanted to add something interesting into their showrooms, to increase sales traffic.(Nash eventually became American Motors Corp {including Jeep} which eventually got bought by Chrysler Corporation).So, around 1950, Nash hooked up with Austin in England, and with Italian designer, Pinin Farina, who drafted a new car which had the Nash "look" but was actually a British sports car underneath.They named it the Metropolitan and started selling them in 1951. Metros were a huge hit in post-war America.In 1955, they increased the size of the engine to 1500 CC's and did a minor styling update, and the car continued its popularity all the way to 1961. "
The car runs and drives excellent, and the restoration shows well with minor chipping on the body. I have plenty of pictures if buyers would like to see more. If you have any questions please let me know.
