Offered for sale is the Hudson Metropolitan seen below. Hudson and Nash merged in 1954 to form American Motors Corp so the Metropolitan was then offered under the Hudson brand and Nash. This example is what is considered a Series II which featured an updated 1,200 cc motor along with a new gearbox and hydraulic activation clutch
We have the original buyers order showing the car was delivered new 12/5/1955 at Keyworth Motors in Philadelphia PA. That makes this car 64 years old and this is probably the closest to original you will find. This is a 20,432 actual mile car that is well documented. The vehicle has received 1 repaint in its life finished in the original color. The door jambs and engine compartment appear to still retain the original paint. Of course there are the usual updates such as tires and some tune up parts. It appears to still have some of the original or original style hoses and clams. You will see in the pictures the car does come with a brand new tune up kit which includes some hoses, clamps, spark plugs and wires. Some dress up items were recently added such as bumper guards, new Hudson emblem in the front grille and the correct trim around the rear taillights.
The interior of this car is very original. The front seat has had the plastic on it since new but as you can see there is some deterioration simply because the material simply was not made to last over 60 years. Same goes for the headliner it is all there but has wear and tearing where it meets near the doors. The rear seat pad is still in pretty good shape. The jack is still in the trunk in the original box.
I have included many photos of the undercarriage. This car is extremely clean underneath. Every other one I have seen has had rust issues, look closely at this one I think you will be impressed.
Due to the time of year and this car having really never seen winter weather I was only able to drive briefly on a nice dry day we just had. It starts easily and go down the road straight. It shifts as it should and there is no excessive smoke coming from the exhaust.
The car comes with loads of documentation from the original buyers order to a stack of service records from the original selling dealer and also letters and personal notes from the previous owners documenting the history of the car and the fact that it has 20,432 actual miles. It also comes with a clean Ohio title showing as actual miles.
Being a very original car that has not had a complete restoration you will find a couple of paint chips around the body ( mostly in the usual locations around where doors and hood opens and closes) and the right front bumper has a minor scuff in the chrome. All the glass is in very good shape including the windshield and rear glass. The engine compartment is very original as you can see in the photos. The repaint is older but has held up very well and has a very good shine. When you look down the sides of the car is very straight.
REDUCED TO $12,500!!!
