1961 King Midget Metro: Micro Roadster

1961 King Midget Metro

If like me you appreciate oddballs and micro cars, then this is the car for you. Few cars are as odd or small as the King Midget! It really is the King of tiny oddball cars. This example is looking a little tattered and worn, but is so small it shouldn’t be difficult to restore. I am a little concerned about the floors and the rust issues, but if you’re handy with a grinder and a welder you shouldn’t have any problems tackling this project. And I’m sure all the attention it will get everywhere you take it will make it worth all the hard work! Plus it has to be the few cars you could drive to the golf course and then use as your golf cart. Would you fight the rust to save this King Midget? Find it here on eBay for $2k in Mansfield, Ohio. Thanks to Jim S for the tip!

    Fred Flintstone would be proud to have this. I had a friend that had a few of these. I believe they had a top speed of 45-50 mph (you’d be a braver person than me) I think this was the top of the line, although, I’d surely repower it with a modern motorcycle engine, of some sort. Sadly, Time magazine called this one of the top worst 50 cars of all time. Be great for a “gated” community.
