Concours 1959 Vespa 400 microcar PRICE REDUCED! For Sale

1959 Vespa 400 microcar in concourse condition. ***PRICE REDUCED+++ Was £29750 now £24950 ono! Offered for sale is my beautiful 1959 Vespa 400 in concourse condition. The car was subject to a no expense spared professional restoration to factory specifications and was completed at the end of 2018. The car was a genuine barn find in 2015 having previously spent its life in the ownership of one family in the south of France, it came fitted with a number of very desirable and rare Vespa 400 accessories, including, luggage rack, glove box door (1 of only 160), locking engine cover and handbag hooks. Prior to the restoration the car and body was in surprisingly good condition with very little corrosion. A full list of the work carried out is available via email and the car comes with a comprehensive photograph album of the restoration in stages. The little Vespa 400 is probably the most practical, fun and usable microcars available, it will seat two in comfort and sit happily at 50 to 55 mph all day long. They are nimble and handle remarkably well. It’s basically a genuine miniature car in all respects and being designed and produced by Piaggio, the famed scooter and aircraft manufacturer, it's beautifully engineered. In 2017 and 2018 a number of Vespa 400s took part in the ‘Classic’ Monte Carlo rally, all cars completed the race and even beat a few Jaguars etc! They come with a full length sunroof for sunny days and an efficient heater for the chilly ones. This Vespa 400 will make a fantastic show winning event car as well as an excellent financial investment. It took well over 1000 man hours to restore this Vespa, to have a professional restoration carried out by an experienced restorer on a Vespa 400 to this standard would normally cost in excess of £50k. I have been restoring cars both professionally and as a hobby since 1983. My previous full restoration was a 1964 Jensen CV-8 that was a multiple show winner, including Newby Hall Concourse (1500 cars plus) three years in a row. The Vespa is located in the United Kingdom (North Yorkshire) and help with overseas shipping if required, is available. £24550.00 ono Please email for further information, or to arrange viewing.
