Mark F - November 1958 to January 1963

November 1958

Identical to the Mark E with a 2/3 seater Tourer and Saloon Coupe, but the Villiers 31A, 250cc engine with a 4 speed positive stop gearbox and a Siba Dynastart was now used.

A 4 seater Family Saloonwith two small,forward-facing, hammock seats fitted in the rear also became available. There were no changes to the dimensions and the weight remained at 672 lb.

 

March 1960

Introduction of the Mark F Ranger. This was a commercial version of the Family Saloon. It had no rear side windows or rear seats but was fitted with an opening rear window for loading purposes. The carrying capacity was 3 cwt. or 31 cu. ft. All bodies were in primer but could be painted for an extra £4.50p!

June 1960

The Mark F Ranger Van was briefly introduced. A small batch of only 39 vehicles were made with the passenger seat omitted. This was intended to increase the carrying capacity by freeing up the passenger area. On the drivers side, a triangular aluminium panel was fitted to the floor at the left hand side of the seat to provide some sort of protection against any of the goods being carried!
As most self-employed tradesmen would probably have used their vehicle socially during the evenings and at weekends, not having a passengers seat to take their girlfriend / wife out in the Bond was an unpopular option!
