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.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this thoughtfully restored, strong running 1957 Nash Metropolitan for your consideration. The times have changed and although we like to think bigger is better at times, this car is a love at first sight and it only gets better when behind the wheel of this cool little ride! The current owner has been able to do a lot to ensure this vehicle was in great shape including new shocks all around, new clutch slave cylinder, new bushings for the rear springs, pinion seal, spark plugs, oil change and right rear wheel cylinder fixed. The exterior is in excellent shape and with the added trunk to this model there is a lot of convenience even for a small car. With a great deal of mechanical work documented, a fresh interior and a great looking color scheme on the outside it's hard to imagine anyone who wouldn't love to own this ride. We also have the pleasure to provide a boot cover, a spare oil pump (era correct), extra gaskets, a set of manuals and parts books. Call or email us today for more information on this great looking, great running example!
