More Information on this classic Metropolitan:

When the guys on the Longbridge production line clapped eyes on the Metropolitan they must have had quite a shock. Used to screwing together dull grey Somersets and similar worthy motors the lurid colour schemes of the Metro' must have brightened the place up a bit. Shame they didnt actually make or sell many.
