After Hutch’s latest Galaxie 500 is blown to pieces, he promptly acquires new wheels in 04-19 Targets Without A Badge, Part 2, to get around in his new, civilian existence. This little beauty is a 1955 Nash Metropolitan, and Hutch calls it “Belle” (licence plate 681 NLI). Unlike Hutch’s Galaxies, this seems to be in beautiful condition (and Hutch even polishes it a bit with his scarf).
The car remains a one-scene joke – if I’m not mistaken, it is mentioned only once after the opening scene. The reason? Starsky probably refused to be seen in this car.
