Bond (UK)

Bond produced their first 3-wheeler in 1948/1949. The first models were fitted with Villiers 2-stroke motorcycle engines. In 1965 the two-strokes were replaced by Hillman Imp units, mounted in the rear. In 1970 Bond introduced the Bond Bug, an entirely new design by Tm Karen,featuring a hinged roof instead of doors. The engine was a 4-cylinder 701 cc unit that delivered 29 hp at 5000 rpm.
Bond also produced some nice-looking sports cars between 1963 and 1971 called the Bond Equipe.

Its all a matter of taste, of course, but lets say the front is the least pleasing part of this remarkable car.
