In the early 1950's the US Nash motor company made a deal with the British Motor Corporation, to produce an American-designed car, the Metropolitan, in England. Variations of the car were produced at Longbridge, England, beginning in 1954. The last new Metropolitans went on sale in 1962.
Vintage Austin 7 crank handle sports. I beleive this is a Nippy dating to mid 1930's. The Austin 7 was a vintage car produced from 1922 through to 1939 in the United Kingdom by the Austin Motor Company. Nicknamed the "Baby Austin", it was one of the most popular cars ever produced there. It wiped out most other British small cars and cyclecars of the early 1920s; its effect on the British market was similar to that of the Model T Ford in the USA. It was also licensed and copied by companies all over the world. The first BMW models (BMW Dixi) were licensed Austin 7s, as were the original American Austins. In France they were made and sold as Rosengarts. In Japan Nissan also used the 7 design as the basis for their original cars, though not under licence. After World War II, many Austin 7s were rebuilt as "specials", including the first Lotus, the Lotus Mk1, which was based on an Austin 7. Such was the power of the Austin 7 name that the company re-used it for early versions of both the A30 in 1951 and Mini in 1959. See "Wiki":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austin_7
