Austin Metropolitan Apparel and Accessories by Legend Lines
The Metropolitan is one of those vehicles that has a cult following. It was a smaller, less expensive compact car aimed squarely for the second-car market. This was the first mass-produced subcompact car and the first car designed by an American company and manufactured overseas for the United States by Autin . The Metropolitan sales were counted against England's war debt to the US. These vehicles were small and efficient with proportions that were distinctly un-American - It was powered by the Austin four-cylinder A-series engine. Production continued until 1961 though there were still enough product to continue sales until March of 1962. In total, 95,000 examples of the Metropolitan had been sold to US Customers, and about 9,400 examples were sold to United Kingdom customers.
