1959 Nash (AMC) Metropolitan Convertible
This is the most desirable "Series IV" car with the high-compression 1500cc engine. trunk lid and vent windows.  
It is a mildly customized older restoration from the early '90s with only one owner since then. This car started life as a hardtop and was treated to a professional conversion. using parts from a donor convertible car and strengthening the structure of the body. Clean. rust-free convertible Metropolitans are getting harder to find. and this is a nice example. The car has been lovingly cared for. regularly started and driven. and serviced annually.  
The paint color is a burnt orange which is close to the "Mardi-Gras Red" originally offered on these cars. The paint still shines very well with some minor imperfections. There are a few scratches and small chips which are to be expected from a car of its age. The body and underside are solid with no major rust issues. There is a small amount of bubbling (rust under the paint) at the lower rear corner of each door and a small spot on the rear deck. These aren't very visible and don't appear to be more than surface rust.  
The interior was done in white vinyl with black carpet. and is all still intact with no rips or tears. The vinyl is a bit weathered. but could be enjoyed as is. The electrical system including the wipers. heater. all the lights. etc is all functional. The dash was modified for a modern stereo when the restoration was done. but currently the stereo does not work.
The engine was just tuned up with a new distributor cap. rotor. condenser. points. plugs & wires. The carburetor was rebuilt and adjusted. and the car runs great. Mileage reads 11. 60 but exact mileage is unknown. Anyone who says a car of this age has "original" miles on it doesn't know or is lying.
Registration is current and clean title is in hand.

The car is located at Metropolitan Pit Stop at 5324 Laurel Canyon Blvd in North Hollywood. If you have any questions or would like to see the car please call Justin at 818-421-5744 or come by between 9am and 5pm weekdays. If you would like to see more pictures please email with any specific areas you would like to see. I have tried to describe the car to the best of my abilities. but please look at the pictures and ask any questions for clarification before bidding. There is no warranty expressed or implied on this car.  $500 deposit required through Paypal within 24 hours of close of auction. Remainder is due within 7 days of close of auction. either by cashier's check. money order. or cash in-person. Overseas buyers are welcome. The Buyer is responsible for securing and paying for shipping. but I will do my best to coordinate with a shipper if necessary.
