Lawrie Bond designed his first three-wheeler in 1948. His most famous was the Bond Minicar–the longest-lived and most successful of Britain’s minimal motoring cars. The replacement for the minicar was the Bond 875. It was first publicly announced in August 1965 and production began a year later. The 875 was a complete change for Bond; the vehicle was like nothing they had produced before. Unlike other Bonds, it was fast–powered by a rear-mounted Hillman imp engine which gave the vehicle a top speed of 80 - 90 mph. The fiberglass shell of the 875 consisted of three parts: two bonded together for the main compartment and the other a bolt-on nose-section. The aluminum doors were the only non-fiberglass body parts. Bond was purchased by Reliant in 1969. Being a rival to the Reliant Company’s 3-wheelers, the 875 was an immediate casualty.
