Bond Minicar Mk. F Family (1959-61) Engine 248 cc Villiers 31A Single Cylinder Two Stroke Production 6493
Registration Number 706 JEH
Launched at the 1948 Motorcycle Show the Mark F was an evolution of the Mark E Three versions of the new model were shown, the Mark F Tourer, the Mark F Saloon Coupe and the Mark F 4-Seater Family Saloon. The Tourer and Coupe were identical to the Mark E versions but the 197 cc (12 cu in) Villiers 9E engine was replaced by a 247 cc (15 cu in) Villiers 31A of 12bhp (an increase of 3.6bhp) the fuel consumption, dimensions and weight of the unit were almost identical to the 9E.
U.K. law at the time also meant that this type of lightweight, single-seat three-wheeler could be driven unaccompanied on learner L-plates without the need to pass a driving test
