1961 AMC Metropolitan Convertible

1961 AMC Metropolitan Convertible

At a time in automotive history when American manufacturers were consistently arguing that “bigger is better,” Nash dared to be different. After creating a well-received concept car called the NXI, Nash believed that a small, efficient car could be successful amongst the sea of large cars being offered by the Big Three: Ford, GM and Chrysler.

In 1953 Nash put the redeveloped NXI into production, and starting in 1954, the car would be marketed as the Metropolitan. It would be Read More

1954 Kaiser-Darrin 161 Roadster

1946 Chrysler Town & Country convertible

Such was the demand for vehicles in the immediate aftermath of World War II that the 1946 Chryslers — like most other American makes — reappeared looking much the same as they had in 1942. One difference in the model line-up was that the wood-embellished Town & Country model, previously available only as a station wagon, was available either as a sedan or 2-door convertible on both the New Yorker (8-cylinder) and Windsor (6-cylinder) chassis.

With their contrasting ash framing Read More

1952 Muntz Jet convertible

In 1950, Earl Muntz bought Indy car builder Frank Kurtis’s design and all the tooling for a 2-seat sports car and renamed it the Muntz Road Jet.

Muntz stretched the Kurtis “sports car” 13 inches to add room for a back seat. The styling was simple but streamlined. With an unerring eye for exposure, he made sure the Muntz Jets were visible, choosing bright paint hues and flashy Read More
