1915 METZ Model 25 #30419

Same owner 30 years. Mild restoration, complete, original and starts and runs well.I  bought the car many years ago in the Central Valley of California and being a california car there was no rust and it was in great shape. I drive it in the local parades and car club ralleys.  I did have the car gone through a few years ago with a new top made and the body and frame completely disassembled and repainted and put back together.
