Oh, how I wish I could buy this car! It brings back so many memories for me. I learned to drive in one just like it. I received my driver's license driving my Metro. I went everywhere in that little car. But I don't have enough money to even make a decent offer. If you decide to auction it off, let me know. You've kept it pristine!

Info via Wikipedia:

The Nash Metropolitan is a car that was sold. initially. only in the United States and Canada from 1954–1962. It conforms to two classes of vehicle: economy car and subcompact car.  In today's terminology the Metropolitan is a “subcompact”. but this category had not yet come into use when the car was made At that time. it was variously categorized. for example as a "small automobile" as well as an "economy car".

January 1959 saw the start of Metropolitan Series IV (NK4) production (Commencing with VIN E59048 on 12 January 1959). This major re-design saw the addition of an external deck lid (previous models only allowed access to the trunk through the rear seat back) and vent windows. By this time. the engine had been up-graded by increasing the compression ratio from 7. 2:1 to 8. 3:1 (Commenced VIN E43116 — October 15. 1957) giving an output of 55 bhp (41 kW) (as used in the Austin A55 Cambridge). The additional features added 15 lb (6. 8 kg) to the weight.  

The "Metropolitan's staying power and its never-ending cuteness" have earned it "a place among the Greatest Cars of All Time" in the opinion of automotive writer Jack Nerad. a former editor of Motor Trend magazine: "No. the Metropolitan didn't come from a top-of-the-line manufacturer. No. it doesn't have a proud racing history. And. no. it wasn't built in huge numbers. But [it] possesses an ageless. cuddly quality that has made it a perennial favorite of car lovers and car agnostics alike. "

This Nash is an amazing little car in immaculate condition. According to information online. this car was originally produced in August of 1959.  It has been almost entirely restored and almost completely with original parts. The only things off-hand that I know are aftermarket are the stereo and speakers and the hood ornament. The engine was completely rebuilt with original parts and has less than 500 miles on the new engine. This car is only driven on special occasions and remains garaged and covered when not in use. except for when it is started and driven around the block to keep things moving. This car has been in the family for awhile. but it has just come time to let it go to someone that can appreciate it. I am offering this for sale for family. so if you have questions. please contact me with a phone number so that I can have the owner contact you to answer them. It's hard enough to find these cars. and even harder to find one in this kind of condition. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Don't pass up this amazing opportunity and Bid Now!
