Description

The Vespa 400 is a rear-engined microcar, produced by ACMA (Ateliers de construction de motocycles et d’automobiles) in Fourchambault, France, from 1957 to 1961 to the designs of the Italian Piaggio company. Two different versions were sold, “Lusso” and “Turismo”.

The 400 was a two seater with room behind the seats to accommodate luggage or two small children on an optional cushion. The front seats were simple tubular metal frames with cloth upholstery on elastic “springs” and between the seats were the handbrake, starter and choke. The gear change was centrally floor mounted.

Finished in Powder Blue with a Beige and Blue interior, this original French-owned example is presented in good condition in all respects. The owner, an enthusiast, has been sympathetic with the car, and has retained as much of the original paint as possible. Supplied with French registration papers, and benefitting from a recent interior retrim, what a great little car to keep at your holiday home for trips to the beach with the roof down!

Gefertigt in Taubenblau mit Beige/Blauem Interieur, ist dieses schöne Auto noch in gutem Gesamtzustand. Der Eigentümer ist sehr sorgsam mit dem Auto umgegangen, und hat so viel wie möglich der ursprünglichen Farbe erhalten.

Übergeben wird es mit französischen Registrierungspapieren, und durch eine kürzliche Interieuranpassung profitiert, ist dieses großartige kleine Auto ideal, um z.B. bei offenem Dach und Sonne zum Strand zu fahren!
