This 1961 Nash Metropolitan Series IV represented an excellent example of this American specification classic 2-Dr Convertible.
The series IV were produced from 1959 to 1962 and were built in England to American Motors specifications by Austin in England, later known as British Leyland Motor Corp or BMC.
As noted in the Vehicle Options, and as depicted on the digital photographs, this 1961 Nash Metropolitan has been professionally restored back to a near perfect, as factory condition some years ago and has been used sparingly since then. This ’61 Metropolitan has an aftermarket Supercharger developed for the Austin Healey. The Judson Supercharger is very rare and must make this Metropolitan a blast to drive.
In addition to the noted condition it should be noted that 1962 was the last year of sales for the Nash Metropolitan. The ’62 models were produced in 1961 and were basically leftovers tagged as 1962 models when production ceased. The Metropolitan “was quite a stylish little car’ that was ‘ahead of its time’ and performed well against its competition.
This vehicle is typical of the type automobile that both collectors and enthusiasts sought after when looking to either add to or expand onto their collection. The “Metropolitan’s staying power and its never-ending cuteness” have earned it “a place among the Greatest Cars of All Time” in the opinion of automotive writer Jack Nerad, a former editor of Motor Trend magazine.
We are currently in an economy in which classic car values continue to consistently improve. Record prices are being paid at each consecutive auction for similar automobiles. As long as this trend continues, a vehicle of this caliber is likely to continue to appreciate in the foreseeable future.
The fair market value of this 1961 Nash Metropolitan Series IV is based upon the average selling price of similar vehicles in the marketplace. Allowances have been made for the noted options and condition. The fair market value does not include tax, title, or registration fees.
