AutoHunter Spotlight: 1958 Nash Metropolitan


In the 1950s, when big cars with even bigger tailfins took over the roads, Nash Motors took a smaller direction in vehicle design. 

The Wisconsin-based automaker created the Nash Metropolitan by combining the small-car expertise of the British with notable American car stylings. The Metropolitan was produced by Austin in England and importuned to the United States during its eight-year run from 1954 to 1962.

AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, has one of these quirky economy cars up for auction – a 1958 Nash Metropolitan.

For a walkaround tour of this Metropolitan, see the video below:

This two-door hardtop is finished in two-tone white and black with chrome bumpers, an egg-crate-style grille and a trunk-mounted spare tire.

The interior is trimmed in black and white and the seller notes there is a small amount of rust in the interior and the AC currently does not work.

Power comes from a 1500cc inline-4 engine linked to a column-shifted 3-speed manual transmission.
