eBay watch: Restored 1970s Volkswagen Beetle

If you like the idea of a classic Beetle but are a little put off by potential work needed on a vintage model, then this restored 1970s Volkswagen Beetle could be the car for you.

The car, which dates to 1971, was apparently bought as a non-runner by the owner with the idea of restoring. This never happened, so instead he got a 'professional' to do the job, resulting in the car you see here. The result is a car described as 'structurally, electronically and mechanically sound' and with no rust.

There is a huge list of work undertaken on the car on the listing, which is well worth looking at if you are planning to bid. Suffice to say, nothing is left out and the car starts first time. The only drawback is the interior, which wasn't finished, But that's probably a minor worry in light of the work don3 structurally and mechanically.

The car is taxed and MOT'd and right now is at £1,000.
