1957 Nash Metropolitan Convertible. True Barn Find! Has been in inside storage in Florida since 1969.  Appears to be a complete and original car. Will need total restoration. . There is some rust underneath. I could tell that part of the crossmember had rust and some other areas but hard to see as I don't have a lift. (see pictures)

Comes with a hardtop parts car. The windshield has a crack but there is one with the parts car. Windows are good.

There is a new convertible top in a box that came with it. Not sure about the engine or rest of mechanicals but there is a engine and tranny in the parts car as well. Actual mileage is unknown.

The value of these Metro's are exploding rising almost 35% in the last year. especially the rare convertibles.

I wanted to restore this for my wife but need cash for my business now. My reserve is much lower than the estimated value of  $7500. in this condition. (see Haggerty Insurance Valuation below. )

*Please feel free to email with questions and to setup an inspection of the car. Inspections must take place before bidding not after. If you do not personally inspect the car or have someone inspect it on your behalf then you must agree to positive feedback. I say this because although I try to disclose everything to my knowledge concerning condition of the car my opinion may differ from yours on certain issues. If you do not perform due diligence on this or any other vehicle then it would be totally unfair for you to leave negative feedback and ruin my rating because you disagree with something you should have been aware of before your purchase by having it inspected to your satisfaction or not. If you are a serious bidder I will send you my phone number to answer any other questions you may have.

Car is advertised locally and I reserve the right to close auction down at any time.  This car will not be released until all funds are cleared. Deposits are not refundable.

On Jan-09-14 at 11:11:08 PST. seller added the following information:

A bidder asked me about the engine. I spoke with the previous owner who was by the way the original owner and he will look for the key but told me that you can turn the key switch on without the key and then pull the starter knob. I hooked up a battery box and the engine is free and cranks. He said it was running fine when he parked it but leaking a little oil. He moved to Florida and brought the car with him and put it in storage ever since.
I also checked other electricals. The headlights and taillights work. The turn signal does not. The horn works.  I did not hear any sound from radio but was told tube radio and may take awhile to warm up. I just turned it on and didn't hear anything and turned it off immediately.
