1962 Nash Metropolitan1962 Nash Metropolitan Convertible
I purchased this car from the second owner and close friend of mine in El Paso earlier this year. This car has spent its entire life in the arid city of El Paso.... The car had been sitting in covered storage for 25 years prior to my purchase. The beauty of buying from El Paso is the incredible climate that has preserved the vehicle. The car had very little rust when I purchased it which I had professionally cut out and welded as opposed to using bondo or filler. The car is extremely straight and runs like a top! This car has recently undergone a restoration to make it a fun everyday driver! This is a beautiful example of a '62 Met that turns heads and gets thumbs up everywhere I drive.
This car was such a nice example of a Nash Metropolitan that I tried my best to keep as much of the car original as possible. This is a super fun little car that looks and runs excellent! This is not a show car but looks awesome and would make anyone proud. Here is your chance to own this Rare Vehicle! 40+ Miles Per Gallon!!!!!
Below is a list of some things I have done to the Car.................
Brand New Paint Job (Original Berkshire Green and Frost White)
1500cc Engine has been Tuned Up
Original AM Tube Radio Works Great
All New Hoses
New Thermostat and Water Pump
New Hoses and Clamps
Brakes ReBuilt with New Master Cylinder
New Clutch Master Cylinder and Slave Cylinder
Electrical Completely gone through(everything works)
New Fuse BlockNew Tail Lights
New Tires (5)
New White Convertible TopBlack Tonneau Cover
Gas Tank Dropped and Cleaned w/ Inline Filter Installed
Many, any other New Parts..........
As I mentioned earlier this is a beautiful Rust Free car that is ready to drive anywhere! I personally drive the car almost daily... Its a blast! With that being said the car is not a show car.... There are a few issues that could be addressed to take the car to the next level. The paint job is about a month old and looks great! The paint is single stage and the colors are original to the car. There are some minor flaws in the paint that can be noticed if you're inspecting with a fine toothed comb. I did not paint under the hood or trunk as I wanted to leave those two areas original. The engine runs very well and idles smooth. The rubber on the vent windows is extremely dry and needs to be replaced.... I am including a new set of rubber for both ($130 rubber). The passenger door sticks from time to time (I believe it needs the latching mechanism adjusted). The windshield wiper motor works intermittently. I have not addressed with the motor as I never drive the car in bad weather. The steering wheel is original and does have some cracks.... I left it original as I liked the look. It could easily be wrapped or replaced.
This Car is Ready to Go!!!!! The car is a looker and needs nothing to enjoy right now as it is.... It could easily be taken to the next level if you desire. This car is extremely rare and will absolutely stand out among other classics.
