1500 Series IV
The Metropolitan has a very interesting history in its 8year cycle of being produced and sold thru multiple businesses and dealers in North America and Europe. The car was designed to appeal to the family as a 2nd car that allowed quick trips to the store or train station when the whole family wasn't being part of the trip. Room for two very comfortably and in a pinch the back seat could accommodate a couple of small children or additional luggage or cargo.
Offered here is a nicely restored Metropolitan 1500 series IV that represents the best year of the vehicle not only in sales (20k+) but also in performance and standard features. Fully restored in 2017 by well-known Metropolitan Restoration Service out of Hartleton PA. Car comes with over $10k in receipts and some extra hardware. Vehicle represents itself very nicely with new paint, rebuilt carburetor, new fuel pump, sealed gas tank, new wiring harness, new shocks, brakes, hydraulic lines, fuel lines, turn signal housings, and all new hardware and fixtures. The drivetrain was completely reconditioned along with rebuilt engine and fully detailed to perfection. All new interior was restored to mimic the car when it was new with all new seat covers, new door panels, new rubber mat with insulation, headliner, sun visors, and dash.
This car starts up with ease and the car hustles thru the 3 on the tree with simplicity along with all lights working, including turn signals and brake lights as well as low and hi beam features. Horn sounds great along with the looks of the rear mounted spare tire and fit and finish that would impress many. The car has won three different shows this past summer according to previous owner in the category of; Best in Show – Most Unique – Best Engine Bay…this is the car to have to get noticed and stand out from the other cars at any car show or event. The white wall tires and heater were the only option from the factory and this has both.
Get in and drive something fun and unforgettable, life goes by too quick to bore yourself with an average vehicle. Time to step up your game for little bit of money and be part of the car show circuit in style.
