1958 Austin Nash Metropolitan at the Maxey Classic Car Show - August 2021
This Austin Nash Metropolitan from 1958 was on display at the Maxey Classic Car and Bike Show in August 2021. The Metropolitan was a compact car developed by the Nash Motor Company of Kenosha, Wisconsin, United States, in 1953 although the Austin Motor Company secured permission in October 1956 to sell the model in the United Kingdom and New Zealand.
Production of British-built Metropolitans commenced at Austin's plant in Longbridge near Birmingham in December 1956 with output initially being reserved for American and Canadian service personnel stationed in the United Kingdom. A total of approximately 9,400 Metropolitans were manufactured by Austin until production was terminated in February 1961 in response to disappointing sales. In 1960, the cars retailed for around 707 for the hardtop version and 732 for the convertible; adjusted for inflation, this was equivalent to 16,651 and 17,240 respectively at 2020 prices.
