Originally launching for the 1989 model year, the Geo Metro was positioned as an affordable gas-sipper designed to simply ferry passengers from point A to point B. One of the biggest attributes of the Metro was its small footprint, which allowed the Metro to remain cheap and fuel efficient. Now, for prospective buyers looking for a vehicle even smaller than the Metro, be sure to check out this minuscule 1993 Geo Metro.
Listed online by a dealership in Massachusetts for just under $7,000, this Metro is certainly unique, and has been extensively modified. For whatever reason, the already-tiny two-door hatch variant of the Geo Metro has been significantly shortened. This modification has resulted in a very disproportioned, funky looking vehicle.
As to the reasoning behind the idea to shorten the fuel-sipping hatchback, the online ad doesn’t provide much in the way of an explanation. One thing is for certain, though, this is something one doesn’t see very often.
In regard to other details surrounding this vehicle, the mini Metro is painted in a bright red paint color, while a large cowl hood provides a striking contrast. On the inside, the interior is finished in a grey colorway with cloth seats. Of course, due to the shortening, there isn’t much of in the way of cargo space behind the seats, which is actually the original rear bench seat.
In the powertrain department, motivation is derived from 1.0L I3 SOHC gasoline engine, rated at a mind-blowing 55 horsepower and 58 pound-feet of torque. Output is routed to the front wheels via an automatic transmission. Notably, the online ad states that the transmission is a manual, but the photos depict an automatic gear selector.
