GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1961 Nash Metropolitan Series IV Convertible for purchase. The British Nash Motor Company noticed that post-WWII American automotive producers were all under the spell of “bigger is better”. Nash sought to develop an economical and smaller alternative that really didn't exist in North America. With help from Detroit based independent designer, William Flajole, and some styling help from Pinin Farina Nash created and exported the Metropolitan. It was marketed as a simple 2nd car for the family when needed. It's known for its size of course, but also as being the first car that was marketed to women. In a time where this car just may appear as tiny for being tiny, the reviews came back overwhelmingly positive on the styling and performance leaving a lasting legacy in the classic car market today.
This '61 Nash Metropolitan comes out of a collection in the Chicago, Illinois area and it is in excellent condition. This car spent most of its life in Lakeland, Florida before being purchased out of an estate in 2008. The car received a mechanical make over with a new carburetor, new distributor, new brake lines, new ignition cable, and new points & plugs. This car is powered by the original 1500cc inline 4 cylinder engine paired with the 3-speed column shift manual transmission. This car runs and drives great and is an awesome collectible that not many people have. It is quite the head turner and a great show piece. Please call or email for more details!
