  5. It's been done, well it's Big Block Chevy powered. Google Vespa car and scroll down a little ways and you'll see it. Lots of pictures.

  10. 34 Chev (L) and a 35 Ford (R) 40 years ago in a fairly large yard, now houses. JW
  11. 29 Essex (also not a Dodge). I cut the front and back off it in 78 and made a pick up cab that became my 1st Hot Rod. The car behind is a Ford Popular. JW
  12. Remains of a 30 Essex Sedan (front) and an Austin (behind) on a mates farm back in 79, all gone now. JW

    A few of the cars I saw at yard in upstate New York the impala was gone but it had the ac dash it had loads of options but was ordered with a inline six the 61 olds was surprisingly solid and had a funky 70s interior, the 55 plymouth was also pretty solid but the floors were gone 20180804_151200.jpeg 20180712_161553.jpeg 20180712_161418.jpeg 20180804_154718.jpeg 20180804_154517.jpeg

    What I saw online..."Vespa 400s are exceedingly rare. Prices for restored cars hover between $12,000 and $15,000, with restorable cars generally priced in the $5,000 range."
    Check it over. If it's mostly complete, and you can get it cheap, I'd do it!

    Yes and hopefully someone would restore it. Such a pretty design...such a shame just sitting there.
