As you might know, the Bond Bug was designed by Tom Karen for Ogle Design (the people behind the Raleigh Chopper) in 1968, hitting the production line in 1970. A few years on and the car was no more. Well, not quite.
This hipster’s runaround from the early ‘70s has lived on thanks to a very loyal fan base, with occasional models popping up on eBay. This is one of the better ones.
The car was a previous eBay purchase before a ‘cost no object restoration’ and use in Germany over seven years. It is now back in the UK (with British plates) and looking got a new owner. If you want to know the full extent of the renovation, do check out the listing, which goes into pretty much every detail. Suffice to say that little – if anything – was missed.
More photos on the listing too. If it all works for you and you like the idea of taking a Bond Bug round the streets, the current bid price is £3,050.
