1960 AMC Other Metropolitan

This 1960 AMC Metropolitan coupe is possibly the nicest, est equipped, nd easiest to drive Met you will ever see. It takes the classic car looks, nd upgrades everything underneath so that this little British/American coupe is really a genuine little sports car.You might not notice anything is much different from your first look at the exterior. You still get that that iconic Metropolitan appearance that packed American design flair into a European size. This little car has plenty of great chrome throughout the grille, nd running down the sides of the body, o separate the two-tone shiny black and red paintwork. There's even a cool small continental kit on the rear. But, hen you start to see a few aggressive touches. It's in the details like the traditionally bright bumpers are now a sleek black, nd why would a little Met need dual exhaust tips?The moment you step inside the upgrades become much more obvious. Sure, his one continues the exterior color scheme like other Metropolitans with its black dash, ed vinyl seat, nd door panels that combine both colors, ut there's something much more premium about this one. After all, ou don't see features like power windows, n AM/FM/CD stereo, r ice-cold air conditioning in other versions of this car. And the upgrades are not just about adding luxury. The Grant sports steering wheel and B&M shifter tell you there's probably something more going on in the engine bay too.When you lift the hood on any other Met, ou see a tiny British four-cylinder motor, ut this one can no longer hide its surprise. The 2.5-liter filling the engine bay is borrowed from a Chevy S10 pickup. Not only does this give you 67% more displacement than the original motor, ut it also makes parts much easier to source. But, hat you'll really like is the more authoritative exhaust note and performance that comes out of this little guy. The whole package is more than just a better motor. This also gets a GM 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission, ith overdrive, nd a Ford rear end to better cope with the added power. There's even a new coilover front suspension with disc brakes, nd the frame has been beefed up to handle the new additions. So if you're looking at this and thinking it's the best Metropolitan to utilize the backroads, e'd have to agree.It's an interesting classic on the outside, nd an upgraded American machine beneath. Best of all, his attention-grabbing custom Metropolitan is at an unbelievably affordable price, hich means it's already gathering interest quickly. Call today!!!
