Rust in peace

Thanks to Robert at the Bond Info magazine for drawing the club members’ attention to this atmospheric photo of a Bond Equipe GT4S languishing in Corsica. “Ideal for restoration” is a phrase often used for basket-case/uneconomic to repair/unloved old cars. I can picture exactly what state this car will be in without needing a closer look. Of the 2505 originally manufactured in Preston in the 1960s I doubt if 100 examples survive in any condition. I always liked the bonnets on the GT4S. So much so that my Triumph Herald currently wears one. Does that make it a Berald or a Hequipe ?
