I know it isn’t the weather for it, but we still fell for this 1971 Volkswagen Beetle 1600 Karmann Convertible on eBay. Read more
The seller calls it a ‘Karmen’, but we’re presuming that they mean this is a fully restored 1971 Volkswagen Beetle Karmann convertible. Read more
One of the most eye-catching cars ever to hit the forecourt, this 1965 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia L is guaranteed to grab the attention of passers-by. Even more so in this bold shade of orange.
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.

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.
