    HIGHLIGHTS

    - Ground-up restoration completed in 1995

    Sold Price: $25,000

    - Believed to be 10,000 original miles
    - Driven less than 100 miles since restoration - Recent fuel and brake system overhaul
    - Won numerous awards

    DESCRIPTION

    Extensive research with public focus groups convinced Nash Motors of the demand for its NXI, an experimental sub-compact car introduced in 1949. Put into production in 1954 with a last-minute

    name change, the Nash Metropolitan was manufactured until 1961. Today, the tiny Metropolitan is a sure-fire star wherever it goes. Case in point: this charming low-mileage 1960 convertible, which has been driven fewer than 100 miles since a ground-up restoration in 1995 and now shows a

    believed-actual 10,000 miles. A multiple award winner, it features recently overhauled fuel and brake systems.
