Ok, if the soaking is not "freeing" it, you should pull the motor and dismantle. There are engine builders experienced in these Vespa engines and perhaps one will answer. Finding a "new" one is not that easy. Finding a door is doable. Have you checked eBay? T
here are a number of vintage Vespa sites with specs for these smallies. My guess it is in the 60s.
This is a good site for info: http://www.scooterhelp.com/restorations/resto.start.html
Contact this is a guy in Indy who rebuilt my 150. He may be able to help. He may have parts too.

Ok did you check the "Scooterhelp" link? Within the link is a S/N search link, wherein, you add your chassis # V9A1T and the S/N "8443". It will reveal your year and model.
Based on the condition, I can see, it is worth putting your time and money into it. However, if you are "not" the "handy type", then, you may not have the budget as labor, parts and materials will exceed any value you have tied up.

looks like a 90cc smallframe and scooterhelp.com will tell you the specifics when you run the frame and engine number. I think you need to drop the motor and split the cases. I just did that on my 100 sport and it is pretty easy. take pics as you dismantle, label and bag the pieces in some sort of order so you know what the piece is and where it goes.

The door is made of semi-unobtainium and usually fetches around $300-400 U.S. if original. I see ripples on the floorboard and otherwise I think that thing can be resurrected....

whole bike as-is...depends on what your market will bear. that looks like a euro model. in the US you might get $500-$750 in that condition.

Hello,
This could also be a small frame 50N, have one of these myself. I have been told that diesel is good but if it's seized solid you will need to dismantle and possibly us an angle grinder on the cylinder head to get it off, you will need to replace that anyway and not really worth repairing (unless you plan to restore this to a standard level). You can buy some really good cylinder kits these days made from quality alloyed steels which work really well and better than OEM (and cheaper) parts.
