1960 Nash Metropolitan Convertible For Sale

The 1960 Nash Metropolitan Convertible is a charming and unique American automobile that holds a special place in automotive history. It was produced during a time when compact cars were becoming increasingly popular due to their efficiency, affordability, and practicality. The Nash Metropolitan, often affectionately referred to as the “Metropolitan,” was a collaboration between Nash Motors and the British carmaker Austin, resulting in a distinctive vehicle with a blend of American and European design elements.

Exterior Design: The 1960 Nash Metropolitan Convertible featured a compact and curvaceous body design with a playful and almost toy-like appearance. Its rounded lines, compact dimensions, and small wheels contributed to its adorable aesthetic. The front end showcased a simple yet stylish grille flanked by large round headlights. The overall design was minimalistic but exuded a certain charm that set it apart from other cars of the era.

Convertible Top: The most notable feature of the 1960 Nash Metropolitan Convertible was its retractable soft-top, which allowed passengers to enjoy open-air motoring. The convertible top could be lowered or raised, providing an enjoyable driving experience on sunny days.

Interior: Despite its small size, the Nash Metropolitan’s interior was surprisingly spacious and well-designed. It could comfortably seat four passengers, thanks to its bench-style seating. The dashboard featured a simple layout with essential controls and gauges. The materials used for the interior were functional and practical, in line with the car’s economical nature.

Engine and Performance: The 1960 Nash Metropolitan Convertible was available with a few different engine options during its production run. One of the most common engines was a 1.5-liter inline-4 engine that produced 55 horsepower. While not particularly powerful by modern standards, it was adequate for the car’s size and intended use as a city commuter and economical runabout.

Popularity and Legacy: The Nash Metropolitan gained a cult following over the years, thanks to its unique design and endearing qualities. It captured the spirit of the era when small, efficient cars were becoming increasingly important in the wake of rising fuel prices and changing consumer preferences.

The Nash Metropolitan remains a symbol of the 1950s and early 1960s automotive landscape, representing a time of innovation and creativity in car design. It continues to be appreciated by collectors and enthusiasts who value its quirky charm, historical significance, and the memories it evokes of a bygone era.

Today, the 1960 Nash Metropolitan Convertible is a sought-after classic car, often displayed at car shows and vintage car events. Its distinctive appearance, compact size, and convertible option make it a standout among other classic cars of its time, and it serves as a reminder of the diversity and ingenuity that characterized the automotive industry in the mid-20th century.

    Is it driveable? I live in Denver CO and if I bought it, would want to drive it home. Does that seem like a reasonable idea?

    • 1960 Nash Metropolitan Convertible For Sale

      John, you want to drive a sixty-three-year old car with only 55 horsepower and no A/C 900 miles in and around mountainous and desert terrain? While the car is drieveable, we do not recommend such a trip. I just looked up and shipping ranges from $875 for an open carrier. If you plan on flying to inspect the car first, then you could rent a Uhaul truck and trailer for about $900.
