Description

Lot #337.1 - From the Dave's Garage Car Collection. Noted as America's first fuel economy car in a time when Americans thought that bigger is better, this little car really stood tall. Its good looks, beautiful colors and bright abundance of chrome really set this car off as one of the nicest little cars in American History. The Metropolitan was never noted of winning any races, but has been known to stop traffic with people looking, wondering and wanting their own Metro. Restoration completed and professional repaint in original two tone colors of Frost White and Berkshire Green. Look close at this body and you'll find a very clean straight body, new convertible top, correct interior kit, including carpet and door panels. Rebuilt 1500cc 4 cylinder engine and new wire harness that runs like a dream. Period correct wide white wall tires and all new chrome and stainless trim polished. This vehicle has more chrome than a '50's jukebox. New correct Firestone white wall tires. Highly detailed engine compartment. Under chassis, front end and rear end detailed. Accessories include factory radio, left and right outside rearview mirrors, wire wheel hubcaps, optional hood ornament, spare tire cover and driving fog lamps.
