What is The Value of The (your) Metropolitan

About The Value of the Metropolitan:

The Metropolitan Convertible is worth almost twice as much as a hard top in similar condition. The earlier Metropolitans with the standard 1200 cc engine, hood scoop, and single color are rare, but still worth the same as the later Metropolitan, if not a little less in value. Your best bet in value would be a late model hard top, of preferably the convertible with a trunk lid, and the 1500 cc engine or the 1500 cc HC engine. (It is hard to find parts for the 1200 cc engine and tranny. They are more expensive and some parts are not in production anymore) Most people will drop a late model 1500 cc engine in their early Met.


Most of the Metropolitans that you will find for sale today, would be of average value. This is due to the fact that they will have an average restoration rather then a ground up restoration. There have been some Metropolitan Convertibles sold after a ground up restoration, for between $15,000 to $18,500.
