Classic Nash Metropolitan: $10,000, O.B.O.
My college classmate Bill Quayle drove one of these out from his home in Ohio freshman year. Wonder what ever became of the car? Bet it sold for a lot less than one of my neighbors in West Hennepin is asking for his '57 Metropolitan: $10,000.
On my way home from a bike ride through Baker Park last week I spied this sweet classic. Had to stop, check it out, and snap a foto. The two-tone color combo appears authentic, though I could tell the body had been repainted. Couldn't see miles on the odo, and the interior was so-so. Nonetheless .....
If you want a classic rag-top, with three-on-the-tree, and a fabled history in American auto-mo-bilia, then you could do a lot worse than driving off with this cutie.
