The shell of the 875 consisted of three mouldings: two bonded together
for the main compartment and the other a bolt-on nose-section. All other areas were also fibreglass and the doors are aluminium.
Despite the ingenuity of the Bond 875 the build quality on many was poor and 875s left the factory with a number of problems
including water leaks, rattles, seat mountings tearing away and windows popping out. Bond later introduced a lockable boot that fixed to the top of the Bond to help prevent leaks but poor quality again meant that they would often fly off at speed. In April 1967 a van version of the 875, the "Ranger" was introduced. This was followed nearly a year later by the Mark 2 version of the 875 in March 1968.
The 875 came into direct competition with Reliant's Regal 3/25 and so in 1969 production slowed when the Reliant Motor company took over Bond and eventually ceased in February 1970 after some 3,400 vehicles had been manufactured.
