1971 Bond Bug 700 SOLD

1971 Bond Bug 700. Very rare Bond Bug that is now becoming very collectable. The Bond Bug is a small British two-seat, three-wheeled automobile which was built from 1970 to 1974, initially by Bond Cars Ltd, but subsequently by the Reliant Motor Company. It is a wedge-shaped microcar, with a lift-up canopy and side screens instead of conventional doors .Following the purchase of Bond Cars Ltd., Reliant commissioned Tom Karen of Ogle Design to design a fun car. The Bond Bug was based on chief engineer John Crosthwaite's newly designed chassis and some Reliant Regal running gear. The original concept was explored by chopping down a production Regal vehicle, the rear of the car being shortened to end over the rear axle. The engine is the front-mounted 700 cc Reliant light-alloy four-cylinder unit, developed from the Austin 7, and which protruded into the passenger cabin. At launch 29 bhp was claimed for the less expensive 700 and 700E models. The Bug comes complete with a history folder containing various older photographs, parts and service invoices. The Bond Bug was available in a bright orange tangerine colour, although six white Bugs were produced for a Rothmans cigarette promotion – one of which was also used in an advertisement for Cape Fruit. Only three Rothmans bugs are known to exist. The Bond Bug was sold as being fun to drive, with the low seating position giving a similar exaggerated impression of speed. However the Bug was no cheaper than more practical cars, costing £629, while a basic 850 cc Mini cost just £620. Tom Karen oversaw the design and production of Luke Skywalker's landspeeder from Star Wars, one of the models was built upon the chassis of a Bond Bug – the wheels hidden by mirrors angled at 45° to the ground. This Bug starts on the button and is a real headturner, on a short test drive it didn't disappoint performing very well and making lots of people smile. We see this car as a sound investment as they very seldom come to market. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.
