1.2L Datsun A12 Inline 4 - 2BBL - 76 HP - 4 Speed Manual - 1 of 412 Produced

The 1962 Nash Metropolitan was the final year of production for Nash's microcar, the Metropolitan. This 1962 Metro was also among the smallest batch of Metropolitans produced by Nash, 1 of just 412 produced. Nash Metropolitans were, and continue to be, known as budget friendly cars and were initially marketed to women after the war. Today, Nash collectors love Metropolitans because they are cute, reliable, easy to work on, and eye-catching. This particular Metropolitan comes to us out of California and is an absolutely stunning example. Powering this Metropolitan is an upgraded 1.2 Liter Datsun A12 motor that is paired with Single 2 barrel carburetor, giving this cute little Nash more power and improved reliability. The standard 3-on-the-tree transmission was also upgraded to a floor mounted 4 Speed Manual, which makes for a much better drive going down the road. The ignition system has also been upgraded to an electronic PerTronix ignition system, providing for a more reliable startup. This cute Metropolitan sits on 4 P155/80R13 Whitewall Radial Tires with Factory Metropolitan Hubcaps that appear to be fairly new. The rear mounted Continental Kit also features the signature Metropolitan Script logo and gives this car a great classic look. The exterior of this Metropolitan has an excellent look having been refinished with a Gold Metallic wrap and White Paint scheme. The chrome and brightwork on this classic Metropolitan are in excellent shape, including the "Flying Lady" hood ornament. The interior on this 1962 Metropolitan was re-done in late 2018. The Espresso Houndstooth Cloth and Velour bench seats look to be in excellent condition. The dash and steering wheel also appear to be in fantastic shape as well. The gauges have been upgraded to provide improved engine information while cruising down the road in this '62 Metropolitan. The radio has been upgraded to a 4 speaker JVC entertainment system to ensure that you can listen to all of your tunes. If you're looking for the cutest car on the road, we've got the perfect car for you in this 1962 Nash Metropolitan right here at Ellingson Motorcars. Give us a call today!
