• Very nice little Met! One misconception is that all Mets are Nash. Nope! When the Metro came out in May 1954, that was when Hudson and Nash merged to form American Motors Corporation. So, from that time through August 1957, they were either Nash OR Hudson Metropolitans. When the Hudson and Nash names went away at that point, the Metropolitan became a stand-alone nameplate at what became Rambler dealers. As such, the '57 – '62 cars are more correctly called simply "Metropolitans", without the Nash in front of it! In fact, the '61 and '62 cars are simply 1960 models that went unsold at the end of that model year. Over 104K cars were built over that time.

  • text mentions trafficator. i dont see any slots in the body or roof where trafficators might live. how do they work on these old nash cars?

    • I don't think it displayed a flag from the body as trafficators generally do. I believe this refers to the what would more accurately be called the turn signal switch. In the Met, they were built into the wheel hub and had a sliding switch at the top; for some odd reason, they called it a trafficator.
