BUY­ING AN AUSTIN METRO

Classics Monthly - - Reader Resto Metro City -

The first main is­sue to con­sider is tin-worm; take a look at the outer sills, be­hind the head­lamps, the rear wheel arches, the front wings, the door bot­toms, around the rear heel board, and both the front and rear valances – in­ner and outer. Com­mon me­chan­i­cal mal­adies in­clude worn syn­chro­mesh rings re­sult­ing in a Metro jump­ing out of sec­ond gear and en­gine oil leaks. The head gas­ket should also be in­spected, as should the sus­pen­sion pipes for any fluid leaks.
