Hmmm, interesting number plate!  :) Not seen one with a 6 & 3 looking exacly like that before. I can't quite see from here but is it the actual period-from-1965 original plate or a fairly modern repro plate? Is there a makers name on it?
I found this picture somewhere on the net a year or two ago. I don't know anything about the car, whether the boot comes from it or a number plate has been swapped somewhere sometime, but some of the later Mark G saloons did have boots as well as the tourer.

another small step forward, yes i know it's the next project , in order to tidy up the garage  and garden i cut the old inner wings to the tourer profile so that i could position the rear boot panel in situ and see whats to do later on .

I was sort of expecting bob, if no-one else, to comment on what else was in the garage . Perhaps its not recognisable to anyone

Richard - won't Stan throw you out of the Bond Owners Club for cutting a Bond in half?

i didnt cut one in half ! but i cut a little weeny piece off - ok off each side  :)


strangely Stan also modified an F saloon into an F Tourer . Stan can be misunderstood he is a great Bond enthusiast , i don't think he objects per se about modifying , but scrapping yes ! i am with him there, and he likes them to be used and you can't knock that either .

How could Stan disapprove of bonding a Bond back together. Its the ultimate in Bonding, yet the owners are not stuck up! I think your only prob might be he might have a proof as to why the Bonds were superior to the Gordon. He is always ready with his facts and experience.
