eBay watch: 1978 Volkswagen Beetle Jubilee Edition – the last-ever Beetle made for the UK market


It's not cheap, but this 1978 Volkswagen Beetle Jubilee Edition is a one of a kind. According to the seller, it's the last-ever original VW Beetle built for the UK market.

Here's the story. In 1978, the last 300 Beetles were built for the UK market, each one labelled and numbered to that effect. Number one was kept in a museum on Germany. This is number 300, the very last one.

eBay watch: Fully-restored 1971 Fiat 500 Lux


To be fair to Fiat, the company has done a superb job with the modern-day reissue of the Fiat 500. But the vintage ones just offer that little but more character, as this fully-restored 1971 Fiat 500 Lux demonstrates well.

This is an impressive, low-mileage model – just 25,000 on the clock over those 40 years, would you believe. It's also a 'fully and thoroughly restored' Fiat 500 with 'all works carried out by a UK Fiat authorised dealership'. That means all mechanics, electrics and bodywork, with the car ready to go as a regular ride or for shows.

Sold with the original handbook and Italian logbook (yes, it's a left-hand drive), the current price is £1,020. Many more images on the website.

eBay watch: 1972 Triumph GT6 sports car


A real gem from Triumph's past, with this Triumph GT6 sports car available on eBay right now.

It's a fine example too. Dating from 1972, it's really been looked after, tax and MOT in place and with plenty of servicing and upgrades over the years, right down to fresh oil and some anti-freeze recently added. See the selling page for a full breakdown.

There's 94,000 on the clock, interior is described as 'good'  and it's a real head-turner, that's for sure. Only thing worth mentioning on the downside is that the care has been off the road for over 15 years, but is 'ready to use' now, according to the seller. If you want it, you'll need to beat the current top bid of £2,350.
