Built: October, 957,

Longbridge,Birmingham,West Midlands, ngland

Colors: Frost White and Berkshire Green

The Metropolitan was designed in the U.S. and it was patterned from a concept carthat was built byDetroit-based independent designer William J. Flajole forNash-Kelvinator. It was designed as thesecond car in a two car family, or Mom taking the kids to school or shopping or for Dad to drive to the railroad station to ride to work: the "commuter/shopping car" with resemblance to the big Nash, ut the scale was tiny as the Met's wheelbase was shorter than theVolkswagen Beetle's.

The Nash Company calculated that it would not be viable to build the Metropolitan from scratch in the U.S. and with this in mind, n October 1952, ash announced that they had selected theAustin Motor Companyand Fisher, oth English companies based inBirmingham, ngland to manufacture the Met. Fisher & Ludlow would produce the bodywork, hile the mechanicals would be provided, s well as final assembly undertaken, y the Austin Motor Company. This was the first time an American-designed car, o be exclusively marketed in North America, ad been entirely built inEurope.
