Congrats and very cool!
This is a great pic! But a note to the caption writer those are Microwave dishes, not Satellite dishes. The van was parked on that site probably to hop a signal over the hills surrounding LA; hence the dishes pointing in opposite directions.
Keep the pics coming ... I've got to keep tabs on the resto'd Metros out there for when I win the lottery! (Any day now, for sure.)
here is an update of my 1953 resto project
Hey Gang -
Have you heard about this Metro Page on Facebook?
Thanks Eric! So fun driving these around town.
Just picked this Metro up Christmas eve. I normally post on the thread called Scoutpro RCS
that's awesome I want it!
This is a better pic of that chopped one.
Well it looks like the guy bought it to flip so you CAN have it for $9000....
*linky long gone*
Doesn't appear to be too many "photos" on the thread? Links don't work & I don't do facebook! Guess I'll have to learn how to post photos, EH.
FOR SALE: 1965 was the last year of the round body Metro Van. This Metro has clean title, ran when parked and is complete. Needs some TLC, but the price is negotiable.

Hello everyone,here is my `48 KB3 I picked up a couple weeks back. I scored free storage from a friend,all I had to do was let him letter the side of it so he can use it as a billboard for his company.
and here is a shot of something brewing with the '46 K1M
I guess I'm a little late getting in on this thread. Here is my 1965 Metro. Yeah, she's a little rough. Was not running when I bought it for a storage unit in 2006. Engine appears to be "stuck". But I'm kinda partial to this old truck just the same. I tell people it saved my life. Before I got it unloaded I had a bad fall and ended up in the hospital. When the took pictures they found a large tumor on one of my kidney's. If not for that "accident" I'd be a dead man today.
I haven't seen this one posted anywhere on BP, and I personally think it is cool.
i love the paint , the clean look THe wheel covers are they custom ?
They may not be wheel covers, but actual polished truck wheels. The slammer crowd takes 24.5 inch truck wheels, shave 1/2" off the diameter, and slap on some 24" rubber bands. Adapters are used to mount the 10-bolt truck wheels.
I appreciate the engineering that goes into some of these rides. NEAT!
Initially, I had considered axle swaps for my 1953 RM120 but upon starting the brake job, everything is in such great original condition that I can't bring myself to do it. I'd be interested to know if anyone has any advice to employ more modern and available bolt pattern. I don't mind the drum brakes. I wondered if there was an off the shelf drum and hub that would fit the backing plates.
