Roadster
Chassis #: 009575
Sold for $41,250 at 2011 RM Auctions - Automobiles of Amelia Island.
This vehicle is a Vespa 400 Jolly and was produced by ACMA (Ateliers de Constructions de Motos et Accessoires) in Fourchambault, France from 1957 to 1961 to the designs of the Italian Piaggio company. There were two versions available, including the 'Lusso' and 'Turismo.' This example is unique - in the spring of 2010, it was converted by Microcarlot into a one-of-a-kind Vespa Jolly. It has wicker seats and a picnic blanket top. These types of cars were catered to the rich and famous, often used as yacht tenders to cruise along the beaches.

Between the wicker seats is the handbrake, starter and choke. The instrumentation is basic and minimalistic. There is a speedometer and warning lights for low fuel, main beam, dynamo charging and turn-indicators. This car was restored in 2010.

The engine is an air-cooled, two-cylinder, 393cc engine that produces 18 horsepower. There are four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes and an independent suspension.

In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the Amelia Island auction presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $50,000 - $70,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $41,250, including buyer's premium.
