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.

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.

I did some work on my Met (carb tuning, new Pertronix replacement distributor & coil) and it's running great. The Metro uses the well known 1500cc B Series Austin engine.
