If you desire a classic city car – small, maneuverable and easy on gas but you aren’t looking for Mini Coopers or VW Beetles, MotoeXotica Classic Cars may be able to help. We are happy to offer this 1959 Nash Metropolitan Convertible. These cars are super cute and gather tons of attention and smiles wherever they stop or park and this one is finished in ones of the Metro's most desirable colors, pink!
Its pink over Frost White exterior is in overall good condition but there is a blemish on the right front fender. The windshield is in similar good shape, clear and crack-free. This small car’s lights are in similar good stead. According to its VIN, this particular car was made in February 1959.
January 1959 saw the start of Metropolitan Series IV (NK4) production. This major redesign saw the addition of an external decklid (previous models only allowed access to the trunk through the rear seat back) and vent windows. By this time, the 1.5L engine had been upgraded by increasing the compression ratio from 7.2:1 to 8.3:1, giving an output of 55 horsepower. The additional features added 15 pounds to the weight. Exterior color options were the same as for Series III. The interior now used a diamond pattern for the seats, with white vinyl trim. The MSRP for Series IV models was $1,672.60 (Hardtop) and $1,696.80 (Convertible).
It rolls on tires with factory wheel covers with pink beauty rings. All of the car’s body panels are straight and solid, its engine bay is very tidy and the bumpers are in very good order. Note: that the speedometer and odometer are inoperable. Its white folding top is in overall good shape but shows some minor blemishes.
Inside, the white bench seat is in very good shape, the black floor mats are in good condition, as is the black metal instrument panel. The original, two-spoke steering wheel faces the driver.
The Metropolitan marked the first time an American-designed car was exclusively marketed in North America yet built entirely in Europe by the Austin Motor Company in England. The Metropolitan was also one of the first cars intentionally marketed toward American women.
Micro cars have etched out their own niche in the classic car community and the Metropolitan is the American original. Excellent examples like this '59 Metropolitan have become highly collectible and values keep rising due to their staying power and never-ending cuteness with all generations!
Competition to this Nash in 1959 included Volkswagen’s Beetle.
This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 23,604 miles since the gauges were tested and reset. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, exempt mileage title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
