Initially called Sharps Commercials Ltd, it changed its name to Bond Cars Ltd in 1965.

The company was taken over by the Reliant Motor Co Ltd of Tamworth, Staffs in 1970 who closed the Preston factory but continued to use the Bond name until 1974 on cars made at their Tamworth plant.

The Bond Minicar Mark D brochure. Influenced by his years in the aircraft industry, Bond used sheet aluminium for the Minicar's body shell and its 122ccVilliers motorcycle engine produced a top speed of around 40 miles per hour.

With its claimed fuel consumption of 104 miles per gallon and priced at £150 plus purchase tax, it would herald cheap motoring for post-war Britain.
