When people talk about 'cute' cars, I'm guessing they means something like this 1960 Ford Popular 100E, which is up for grabs on eBay right now.
Yes, 50 years old and done just 90,000 over that half century, as well as avoiding the need to be welded anywhere. Tax exempt and with an MOT until March 2011, it comes with two sets of keys, a complete record of all work done (and journeys made) and has just had five new tyres, a new exhaust, new battery, new brakes, plugs, points…you get the idea.
It's not mint, but it certainly looks like a very good example. £500 is the current price if you fancy it.
