The Nash Metropolitan is a car that was sold, initially, only in the United States and Canada, from 1954–62. It conforms to two classes of vehicle: economy car and subcompact car. The Metropolitan was also sold as a Hudson when Nash and Hudson merged in 1954 to form the American Motors Corporation (AMC), and later as a standalone marque during the Rambler years, as well as in the United Kingdom and other markets.
"The Car That Set A New Vogue," the 1952 Nash Rambler. It certainly did! Introduced in 1950, the Rambler was soon joined in the new small car market by Kaiser-Frazier's Henry J in 1951, Willys' Aero in 1952, and Hudson's Jet in 1953. The tubby little Rambler would get a handsome restyle by Pinin Farina in 1953, a design which would remain in and out of production until 1960. [pr]
