1959 AMC Metropolitan Promo Review
The 1959 AMC Metropolitan convertible promo model manufactured by Hubley is the subject of this ARA Promo Model Review.
Hubley of Lancaster, Pennsylvania produced promo model kits and assembled models in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Included in their production were models of five “foreign” cars and ARA will be presenting reviews of each of them.
This promo is a 1959 AMC Metropolitan convertible in yellow over white with a white interior featuring yellow seat accents. The model has a detailed plastic undercarriage and an enclosed friction flywheel. An especially notable feature is the bumper mounted spare tire. The build quality on the model is very good except for the less than satisfactory fit of the windshield within the frame. The model is 6.25 inches in length, 2.5 inches wide, and two inches tall.
