Visit our Website This very nice 1974 Vespa 150 “Sprint Veloce” VLB1T model was purchased by the vendor soon after it had been restored as a surprise for his wife, she could then accompany him on her own bike rather than on the back of his “GL1800 Honda Goldwing”. Well gents we know how that can work out sometimes!! She really did not like the idea, or the Scoot and it has spent its time ever since, sat unused in a garage.

At this point we have to bring your attention to the fact that on the V5 it shows as a 125cc but it is a 150cc model. You would need to correct this when in your possession to make it correct.

As previously mentioned, it really has not been used since its restoration and still shows “5 kms” on the odometer, the vendor has bought a MPH clock for it and this will form part off the sale. Once imported from sunnier climes the restorer set about just about every part of the bike, replacing where needed and restoring elsewhere. The tyres on it are still as good as new as is the very nice shade of “coral” paintwork (just a minor mark on the l/h side of the front mudguard from storage that might polish out). The all-important chassis supports running across under the foot wells are excellent with no corrosion evident. The twin seats are perfect as is the matching spare wheel cover.

Mechanically the engine starts easily and the gears select correctly, all the electrics work. The current MOT runs out in April prior to the auction but we see no reason why, past some gentle recommissioning, this scooter would struggle passing its next one. Correctly registered as “Historic” tax class on its V5 and on the right age related price. A sought after scooter that came standard with the better 10 inch wheels. In great condition and perfect for a collector or a fan of these iconic machines.

Whether you are buying or selling a classic car at auction, the last place you want to be is in a cold, draughty barn or tent! You don’t want your cherished classic left out in the wind and rain, while potential buyers trudge through puddles as they try to gauge the condition and value. If you are bidding you want to be able to relax and not be choked by fumes as vehicles are driven through a crowded shed.

It doesn’t have to be that way – at Essex Classic Car Auctions… we are different.

In association with Crowne Plaza Hotels and Resorts, ECCA brings you the classic car auction experience you deserve, hosted at the Five Lakes Crowne Plaza Resort and Spa Colchester. This luxurious hotel is set in 320 acres of Essex countryside, boasts two golf courses, a fitness centre, swimming pool and spa plus a heated indoor auction venue for over a hundred vehicles.

Essex Classic Car Auctions run over two days, with viewing on the first day (normally from 3pm until 6pm) and on the morning of the second day, usually from 10am until the actual auction starts at 2pm.

So why not come along on the viewing day, browse the Lots in comfort, with the option to then stay the night. Enjoy dinner and breakfast at your leisure, have a swim or play a round of golf before the auction. Bring your partner and take advantage of the special rates ECCA have negotiated when you buy an Auction Catalogue.

Forget the cold and wet. Forget barns and tents. Come along and experience our classic car auctions the way they are meant to be – at Essex Classic Car Auctions… We are different.
