In Italian Vespa means wasp, which couldnt be more appropriate for this Light Blue (almost Sky colored) over Red & White Interior Vespa 400 Convertible. Introduced in 1957 and engineered by Piaggio, the Italian manufacturer of the ubiquitous motor scooters which inspired a generation of La Dolce Vita, the Vespa automobile was built in Piaggios French factory. A rear-mounted 393cc 2-stroke twin produced 20 brake horsepower and drove through a 3-speed transmission to the rear wheels. Only one body style was offered, a 2-door coupe with folding fabric sunroof, but it weighed only 850 pounds at the curb. It was only 112 long; two could fit comfortably perpendicular to the curb in an average American parking space. Good performance encouraged weight loss by its occupants -- a couple of generous sized Americans could increase a Vespa 400s mass by 50%. In other word, a Vespa 400 is small. Finished, as mentioned, in Light Blue with a black folding roof, Red and White upholstery and interior trim, this little "wasp" has been cosmetically redone recently with fresh paint, upholstery and a detailed engine compartment. It is much more unusual than Isettas, Jollys and Fiat 500s and will bring smiles and cheery waves from onlookers wherever it appears. In a vehicle this small (and it is small) packaging is a challenge, so if youre looking for the battery, its on a tray that slides out from between the headlights.
This 1959 Vespa 400 is nothing short of perfection. The HOTTEST things in the collector car world right now are MICROCARS. Thisparticular car will steal the show at any auction or event. The craftsmanship and skill of the restorer is evident. This car has recently underwent a COMPLETE NUT & BOLT RESTORATION and been brought back to exact factory specifications. The restoration was completed by marque specialists in Modena Italy. Due to the rarity of these vehicles and the scarcity of original parts, this restoration likely cost nearly DOUBLE the asking price. The exterior is finished perfectly in the correct vintage color of Light Blue. The paint shows flawlessly.
If you are feeling like getting some sun on your face, simply retract the accordion style top and you are ready to go. The top is perfect and features the correct vintage rubber tie backs, some yellowing of the plastic window is apparent but not effectingvisibility. The underside of the car looks like brand new. All chrome, trim, and glass is like new. The interior of the car is flawless i, with attention paid to the smallest detail. The spare tire is intact and all seats, gauges and accessories are in perfect working order.
Only 67k ORIGINAL Kilometres! Mechanically this vehicle is fresh and could drive across the country tomorrow. All drivetrain, suspension, braking, wiring, and engine components were RESTORED in the course of the restoration. Every part on this car is like new. The two cycle 398cc 18hp engine and 3 speed synchromesh transmission are in perfect tune.

The cute factor and wonderful presentation give this car excellent presence and opportunity. It has been lovingly enjoyed at the beach and always garage kept. This car is a "MUST HAVE" for any collector. Not only does this car serve as a unique conversation piece, but it could be driven across the country today with no trouble.
