eBay watch: 1970s Reliant Scimitar GTE Auto


For a car said to be 32 years old, there's not a lot of mileage on this Reliant Scimitar GTE Auto – and it's not a bad looker either.

The car has done just 68,000 miles if the details are accurate and comes with 10 months MOT and a couple of months tax. It's also said to be in 'sound mechanical order' and has a new paint job from two to three years back, plus plenty of extras. In other words, it's good to go for driving away, even if the petrol for that three-litre engine is costly.

The interior doesn't match the exterior sadly, so you'll have to spend some money getting that up to scratch if you're in for the long haul. Aside from that, this is a tasty motor. It's currently at £511.01.

eBay watch: 1970s Bond Bug three-wheel car


It's a cult car from the space age end of the 1970s – and a Bond Bug is on eBay right now.

Designed by Tom Karen for Ogle Design (which also designed the Raleigh Chopper), this compact three-wheeler, the car was first seen in 1968 and went into production via Reliant in 1970, aimed at the hip young motorist of the day.

The model here is described as an 850ES, registered in 1974 and packing an 850cc engine, two seats and some upgrade work by the current owner. It's also had a new paint job via the owner before that. Right now it's up for £3,000, which isn't cheap, but it's not exactly a car you'll see everyday. Saying that, we suspect it's a lot of fun to drive.
