  • hôte : e-bay, le fameux site d'enchères aux USA qui comprend toujours entre 1 et 2 millions d'objets à enchérir. C'est celui aussi qui a acheté notre iBazar national avec ses 4 à 600 mille objets aux enchères et qui est devenu
  • voitures américaines : il y en a toujours beaucoup avec de superbes photos sur le site américain. Le site français propose en général entre 2 et 4 pages d'objets et de voitures avec une certaine modestie pour les photos. Ceci va sans doute changer
  • photos : elles sont du propriétaire-vendeur de l'email de l'Oregon (Portland)

  • Rare 61 Metropolitan-More smiles per mile
  • Vehicle Description : I am relisting this Met. The "Buy it Now" price equals the reserve, so if you want this car, "Buy it Now" will be the least expensive way. This one is a honey. Everyone smiles when you drive by in this. Must sell for medical bills. '61 Metro hardtop. Oregon car, indoors kept-found in a barn last year. Gas tank was removed and flushed, intake filter on pick-up tube removed and cleaned. All stock, except turn signal indicator lights on front fenders, and reflectors over rear wheel well. Cleaned out fuel pump. New gas, cleaned the points, changed the oil and antifreeze, and she purrrs like a kitten. New shocks on front, and wheel bearings. (5) New radial tires. Blasted and repainted 5 wheels. Polished hub caps and bought new vinyl "M" stickers for them. Also vinyl "Metropolitan" script in back window, and nice vinyl spare cover. Newer battery, but it won't stay charged. I don ''t know if it's the battery or voltage reg. or what. New brake wheel cylinder kits, and flex hoses on front. Brake and clutch master cylinders rebuilt. The entire exhaust system, from donut at exhaust manifold, through tailpipe was replaced last summer. It was done in a muffler shop that does classic cars. The heater hoses are not hooked up. The fan runs, but I know nothing about the heater core. All lights work, signals are toggle switch on dash. Horn works. Has a tach. No radio. All glass good, windows roll up and down, both doors, trunk, and hood all operate. Vinyl on seats and doors was redone sometime, still looks good. Headliner is good, but hanging loose in one spot. I was told it could be reset. Speedo doesn't work, but the tach does. 76000+ miles on odometer. The color in the pics is bad, cheap camera, sorry. It is not deep red, more like salmon- orange, as we'd say here in Oregon, and the white is white, not yellowish, like the pics. Chrome is shiny, with "some pits. Rockers and lower doors have some rust through. Floorboards are clean, very little rust. has an old bondo spot on roof, easily fixable. This is not a show car, but could be with a little work. It is a solid daily driver, if that's what you're looking for. Handles nice. A nice little car for putting around. It comes with a tow bar, welded angle iron (beefy) that could tow this car a long way. Also a light bar-- bungy cord it on and go. I towed one over 200 miles, no problem, in the rain even, behind my '93 Ranger last year with this set-up. Deposit of $200.00 due in 48 hours, paypal or wire transfer. Full payment by cashiers check mailed to me, within 8 days of auction end. Allow plenty of time, the mails run slower now, you know. Buyer pays all shipping charges, or pick up in SW Oregon, 15 miles off I-5 near Roseburg. If you bid on this car, and win, I expect you to buy it.
