1959 Nash Metropolitan, Coupe, Ca Car, Restored, SOLD!
1959 Nash Metropolitan, Coupe, Ca Car, Restored, For Sale!
This is a local Southern California "Blue-Plate" car that is completely
rust-free and has been fully restored. This is the rare and desirable
Series IV model with the upgraded engine, rear decklid and vent window
model that was introduced in 1959. This motorcar has been well restored by
a local southern California vintage sports car engineer and racer. The car
is restored to original specifications and is in car show and touring
condition as opposed to concours condition.
The drivetrain was thoroughly rebuilt and the car disassembled for repaint
in its original livery colors of tangerine and white exterior with black
and white interior. In the process of the restoration, the previous owner
decided to change the rear end ratio from an inefficient 4.22: 1 to 3.9: 1.
He also acquired new axles to ensure durability.
He bought the car 11 years ago from a neighbor who had owned it for many
years and had bought it in Los Angeles. The car has been in California
since new. In 1999 the car had amassed a total of 97,779 miles. A
detailed maintenance log from the previous owner is included, which covers
ministerial details such as tire pressure readings and oil changes as well
as restoration activities. By 2000 he had broke 100,000 miles and today
the car has a total odometer reading since new of 103,950 miles. Since the
rebuild it has accumulated approximately 3,000 miles.
The car was repainted and reupholstered over the past year, including most
of the stainless trim replaced, new window rubbers, seals, tires, etc.

The Unfortunate History of the AMC Pacer
Behind all the jokes and insults, the AMC Pacer is actually a car with a
great deal of history. It began as radical new design from an underdog
company. In an attempt to combat the big, bland, boxy cars from Detroit's
"Big Three," little American Motors Corporation decided to build something
a little different. Their one-eyed car stylist Dick Teague proposed a
small, wide car with big windows and smooth areodynamics. Americans had
never seen anything like it.
This in-depth documentary tells the true story of the Pacer. Unbeknownst
to many, the car persevered through manufacturing setbacks, government
regulations, and many other troubles. Featuring a ton of old car
advertisements and rare footage of AMC's factory, the film helps paint a
picture of the Pacer's world. Director Joe Ligo sits down with AMC stylist
Vincent Geraci, author Patrick Foster, and television personalities John
Davis and Pat Goss from PBS's MotorWeek.
1956 Nash Metropolitan Black and White
Just a real quick look at a 1956 Nash Metropolitan, a real unusual little
car. Then we glance at a Ford Pinto Wagon with woodgrain trim, not one of
our favorites, but to each his own. Thanks for watching.
1949 Nash Ambassador Airflyte barnfind 1st time driven in over 44 years
Come along for a ride in this arcane behemoth !!! It feels so satisfying to
drive a car that has sat for so long and required so much work to bring
back to life and restore to driver status. This kind of job satisfaction
keeps me going. It's my life reward and passion. All brakes, fuel system,
engine and chassis repairs now complete. This old Airflyte now purrs like a
kitten and stops on a dime. Update: this car is a "Special Super", of
course, we all know it it super special....Haha, it has special handwritten
in pencil on the fire wall, but, I never thought much about it. Turns out
it has been positively identified as a very rare 1949 "Special Super", no
other 1949 special supers are known to exist....yet
