Following are the claims made regarding performance, from the same interesting brochure. While we cannot stand behind the claims made by the manufacturer, we still thought you would enjoying seeing this information.
"EXCLUSIVE NASH AIRFLEX FRONT SUSPENSION, plus low center of gravity and scientific distribution of weight, combine to give the Metropolitan unusual "cornering" stability and ride control.
HEART OF THE SMART METROPOLITAN is a world-famous, Austin A-40overhead valve engine, delivering 42 horsepower at 4500 RPM. Compression ratio 7.2:1. Proved economy of up to 40 miles to the gallon. The 3-speed syncromesh transmission fully utilizes engine power for top all-around performance.
PARKS IN THE SMALLEST SPACE required by any American car. Turning radius is far less than the average for American automobiles. Drivers especially like the ease with which the Metropolitan can be slipped into a tight parking space with the touch of a fingertip... and appreciate it's extraordinary nimbleness in heavy traffic."
There are many more details about the Metropolitan that you will enjoy reading from the brochure, from which we have quoted above.
Note: the original 42 horsepower engine was converted to 45 horsepower as a result of rebuilding/reboaring of engine. There is also no radio antenna and we do not know if there ever was an antenna.
