Hi all,

Tearing into a 67 Vespa Allstate in baskets for a complete restoration.
Engine has been overhauled and most appropriate parts are sandblasted and primed and other parts are being rebuilt or replaced.
Body is in the body shop for repair and paint. Then the assembly process will begin and cables etc. replaced as well as other necessary parts.
Question is paint.
Does anyone know of an auto paint that will suffice as a close match or where to get the name or # of the original color paint for this vintage Vespa?
This scoot is being built as a nice rider, not for show, but would like to keep it mostly original.
Advice will be appreciated.
Thanks,
D Webb

The last year All states were made was 1966. I have one that I am having restored also. Well, notvrestored but completely redone.

Yes the 67 title probably has to do with the titling or registration process.
None the less it is titled as a 1967 Allstate.
Nice paint shop you have there.
