1960 Vespa 400
Convertible
Designed by Piaggio Company in Italy, best known for their Vespa scooters, the 400 was manufactured in Fauchambault, France by Ateliers DeConstruction De Motorcycles Et Automobiles. Approximately 1600 cars were imported to the US. This Vespa was imported through the Port of Houston and sold by a Colorado scooter dealer. The price was $1,080. Speeding rating: 55 mph.

The engine is a 2-cylinder 2-cycle Air-cooled 25 cubic-inch 393 cc, with 18 horsepower.
