Vintage PR Photo: 1955 Bond Minicar Model C – The British Family Truckster

This shot rather grabbed me. I was about the same age as the younger kid in the back of this Bond in 1955, and we didn’t have any car at the time in Innsbruck, so I suppose I would have been pretty chuffed to ride in the back of one of these. Or maybe not…I never did set foot inside one of the micocars at the time, as we had friends with real cars, like VWs, Fiat 1100, Ford Taunus, Lloyd, and such. Modest, but genuine cars. This looks like an amusement park ride…here Mom; your turn to drive!

The other shot of a Bond is just as odd:

Why would they choose to shoot it along with a Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith?
