eBay watch: Vintage Trabant 1.1 car

It's actually not as 'vintage' as you might think, but this Trabant 1.1 car certainly looks the part.

The car, an icon of the former East Germany, dates back to 1991 and has been upgraded – the old engine has been replaced with a 1.1-litre VW engine, with additional improvements to the bodywork, brakes, suspension and interior. But the overall look is still reassuringly mid-20th century.

Just 36,000 miles on the clock (not bad for 23 years) and the price right now is a very reasonable £430. See the listing for the full technical breakdown, more images and of course, if you want to put in a bid.
