1963-1970 BOND GT 2+2/GT4S specifications


In 1963 Bond expanded into the world of specialist sportscars – with four wheels. But the full quotient of wheels still didn’t fulfil Bond’s claims that this was ‘the most beautiful car in the world’ although this glassfibre coupé on a Triumph Herald chassis was a neat enough effort. Initially the engine was the 1147cc from the Triumph Spitfire, which rose to 1296cc in 1967 when the Spitfire expanded. The improved GT4S of 1964 had four headlamps, a boot that actually opened and greater headroom that helped to up the comfort level.
