About

1958 Sunburst Yellow/White Metropolitan. All stock 1500 cc, Austin engine, 3 on the tree transmission – daily driver (when Michigan weather permits!) We’ve driven this to many states and have a blast with it.

This picture was taken at the Tin Can Tourists Annual Gathering in May 2007. The Met pulls a 2007 Dew Drop Cargo Trailer.

Specs

A scorching 1500 cc engine powers this baby! 3 on the tree transmission. Due to small size, it’s surprisingly fun to drive – and very easy to maintain. Austin engine makes it easy to find parts. Designed by Nash, built in Longbridge England for the US market.

This is a “mid” version. Features the 2 tone paint scheme but does not have vent windows or an exterior trunk lid.

Factory Options

Weather-eye heating system, AM Radio, under-dash map light came standard. Dealer options were the rear view mirrors and Flying Lady hood ornament.
