Bond three-wheelers grew up in 1965 with the advent of the 875. Fabricated from glassfibre the designation came from the 875cc Hillman Imp engine installed in the rear. Despite it being detuned to 34bhp the Bond was still disconcertingly fast and also rather precarious on corners. A MkII version in 1967 saw the front end remodelled with rectangular headlamps. Like the Minicar, the 875 would probably have enjoyed a long life had not Reliant taken over Bond in 1969 and brought production of this Regal rival to an end.
