Two Hudson's, two Nash's. Ask another question.

I'm sure you know this but the next time you lift a picture off the internet, click on it. Select " save as". When that box opens up decide where you want to save the image and before you place it in a folder for further use go down to the image description and change it's name. I use z or x plus a number. Then save it in your folder . When you need it for a trivia question it will be described as x whatever on the trivia site. At that point it't untraceable back to it's original location on the web.

If you knew all this stuff already-------Never mind.

Oh yeah, Brian would have got that question in about 15 seconds.

Thanks for the pat but no I wouldn't have! I didn't even know they were ever distributed under the Nash name! I'm a geek with a Rambler American but I am not that big of a geek.

Brian:

My wife had one and was a former member of the Metropolitan Owners Club of North America (MOCNA).

The Met was basically a rebodied Austin A40, mechanically identical except for the transmission. The Austin was actually a very heavy car that had a very deep first gear in a 4-speed box . The Met was light, so it did not need the super-low Austin first gear, so that was removed from the box, resulting in a 3 speed box.

The first 2 years of production (54 & 55) had the bar - type grill as shown in the `Hudson`pix with the ones from `56 onwards having the mesh grille.

54 & 55 had the fake ``ram air scoop` while later ones did not. 1959 and onwards had a trunk that could be opened from the outside - until then you had go through the back seat to get at the tiny trunk. 1959 was the last year of actual production, but they sold so slowly that many were sold as 1960, 1961 and even 1962 models!

They were sold as both Hudson and Nash-Kelvinator (honest!) so long as the Hudson name existed.

My wife`s car was a very early `54 Nash Kelvinator version

Well all this talk about Austin, Hudson's and Nash's got me to try to figure it all out. Here's what I found out. The Metropolitan was developed by Nash- Kelvinator ( American company) in 1950 It started as a concept car, the NXI. Nash wanted to get back into the European market. Nash found it was cheaper to have it built in the UK than the U.S. and get it into both Europe and North America. They signed the deal with Austin Motor Company in Great Britain. 1953 was the first year it was available in the US and Canada. It wasn't available in Europe for sales until 1956. In Europe it was sold as a Austin Metropolitan with right hand drive.
Nash-Kelvinator merged with Hudson in 1954 to form AMC and marketed it as the Hudson Metropolitan in 1955.
Last year of production was 1961.
In 1956 AMC sold some right hand drive Metro's to police departments as Meter Maid cars.
It was always manufactured in England with Austin (UK) engines.

There you have it.

BB

Oh yeah. They never made a station wagon other than two prototypes. Any wagons and pick ups were modified from either convertibles or hard tops.

Honestly, I didn't notice the names either. I never even clicked on your pictures. There's a guy that comes by our shop occasionally who has a Hudson Metropolitan...first time I saw it I thought it was a custom.

Here's my question:

What is this emblem from? (year, make and model)
