I’ve owned several Kei cars & vans over the years, Subaru 360 2 strokes Honda 600s like pictured above. Recently passed on a single seater narrow cab truck, kicking myself now that I learned of pending narrow vehicle legislation here in Cali.
Just ran across this cool Vespa listed on SF Craigslist for only $30K. Look very similar to the Fiat:
1959 VESPA 400 Micro Car - remarkable survivor with great historical interest
This 1959 Vespa 400 is an all original example in perfect running order. It was discovered in France and imported to the USA.
All paperwork is in order. Original paint in a charming French Blue shade has some significant patina and surface blemishes due to weathering, but still looks very good considering the age. No rust, no dents, very straight and solid body and trim.
The interior is in good condition and everything works as expected. The roll back convertible top is new.
Mechanically A1, starts readily and runs great. Brakes, trans, clutch and suspension all in top condition and all maintenance is up to date. Odometer shows just under 8K Kilometers ( approx. 5K miles), believed to be original mileage. Very likely one of the finest overall all-original examples in existence today.
Super fun to drive, quite reliable, simple to maintain and just the coolest micro ever. Extremely rare in this all-original, low mileage, very complete condition. A unique addition to any collection or a very cute, attention getter for promotional purposes.
Comes with the original French license plates, has a current California title and registration, and is ready to enjoy or add to your collection.
