eBay watch: 1967 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia

Karmann

I know we have featured one of these in the past, but I couldn't resist highlighting this superb example of a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia currently on eBay.

It dates from 1967, but according to the seller, the car has been 'completely taken apart, sand blasted then rebuilt', with new brakes, wheels, tyres, interior and paint job, while the engine has been taken apart, rebuilt and re-chromed professionally. In addition, the engine has been tunes and the gearbox reconditioned. It's certainly an impressive restoration.

Downside? Well, left hand drive if you're not used to it and possibly the price. Right now it's at £1, but with a reserve, that means nothing. You can take a chance that the reserve is fairly low or you can simply splash out on the 'buy it now' priced of £8,500 if you happen to be feeling flush.

eBay watch: 1972 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia

Karmann

It's a classic shape – and if you like the colours yellow and black, this Volkswagen Karmann Ghia might be for you.

Dating back to 1972, it's a right hand drive model, MOT'd until June 2011, with leather upholstery, original carpet and door panels having been 'renewed'. That colour, by the way is original, albeit resprayed back to its original colour. The 1600cc engine is said to work fine too.

Right now it's at £2,500. Not perfect for the current weather, but come the spring, you might just be glad you invested in it.

eBay watch: 1976 Volkswagen Karmann Beetle convertible

Bug

Looking for a cool car for or the summer that isn't going to cost much? Check out this 1976 Volkswagen Karmann Beetle convertible, which is currently criminally cheap.

Not exactly the lowest mileage at just over 113,000 miles, but let's be honest, this is a classic car that's 34 years old, so not that bad really. According to the seller, this left-hand drive model is 'in good running order' and in 'regular use throughout the year', with regular serving at a VW specialist.

Body is described as 'sound' and the MOT takes you to June 2011, so all in all, sounds like a winner if you want to own a big. Especially at the current price – just £10.50 would you believe.
