eBay watch: 1970s Bond Bug car

Nothing looks quite like a Bond Bug – and as such, this is a car that will turn heads every day of the week.

The car was designed by Tom Karen for Ogle Design (the people behind the Raleigh Chopper) back in 1968, but not put into production until 1970, when it was pitched as a run-around for the hipsters of the day. A few years later and it was all over.

But the car retains a loyal following and this 700 ES model in the classic orange will get you into an exclusive club. The one here has apparently been 'dry stored' for years, with the main problem being a 'small' crack on the hood. It does, however, start first time and 'drives great'. It will also be sold with 12 months MOT (and is tax-free).

Fancy it? The car is on a 'Buy It Now' for £3,900, or you can put in a lower offer.
