In 1996 a complete frame off restoration of the body and interior was done. The work was done by Horseless Carriage Restorations. Mileage was 48,000 at that time. Current mileage is 49,294. That is less than 1300 miles in 22 years. This Metro has been garage kept for the last 22 years.
In 2013 at 48,975 miles a new Master Brake Cylinder was installed and all four brake cylinders rebuilt. A new Clutch Master Cylinder was installed and the slave cylinder rebuilt. New wheel lug nuts were also installed.

The wide white wall tires look like new and have 100% tread depth. They still have the little rubber tits on them like a new tire. The paint job is very good but probably not Concourse grade. A new $400 car cover will be included for FREE.
