Approximately 95,000 Metropolitans were sold in the United States and Canada, making it one of the top-selling cars to be imported into those countries at the time, and its sales in 1959 helped to spur the introduction of the Big Threes (General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler) new compact models. a 55hp 1500cc engine and backed by a 3 speed manual transmission you could say, she’s somewhat spry.
