For sale by auction on Saturday 29 November 2014 with Historics at Brooklands. Brooklands Motor Racing Circuit. Weybridge. Surrey. Call 01753 639170
We are delighted to offer this rather special Triumph Herald
Convertible. The original sales invoice shows that the car was
supplied by Brook Lane Garage. Ferring-on-Sea. Sussex on the 10th
February 1967 to a W. B. Shaw Esq. . of Preston. Sussex. The
specification states quote. "One new Triumph Herald Convertible
with heater and disc brakes finished in N. White with red vynide
trim and Black Soft Top and complete with equipment as per Maker's
specification". All this including purchase tax. delivery charge ex
works. anti freeze. number plates. road fund licence. undersealing
and four gallons of petrol all for a staggering seven hundred and
sixty three pounds and twelve shillings! The Herald stayed within
the same family until 1993.


In 2000. a comprehensive restoration began with the aim of
achieving concours standards. The little Triumph was stripped to
its bare chassis with a new unused chassis found in a technical
college replacing the original. Mechanically. everything was either
replaced or overhauled. including a new differential and a rear
suspension swing arm conversion (reduces the infamous Herald wheel
tuck under). The original engine was rebuilt and balanced using new
pistons and rings. an unleaded cylinder head and fitted with
Spitfire twin SU carburettors and a stainless steel four branch
tubular exhaust manifold. An electronic revolution counter has been
added as well as a Triumph Spitfire D-Type overdrive gearbox to
aide more comfortable cruising. In fact. everything has been
overhauled or replaced. The interior is a joy with a dashboard that
may be described as perfect. The hood is put down easily and tidied
by the hood cover; importantly. it is also quick and easy to erect.
On the road the Herald performs admirably and with that extra
performance it easily keeps up with modern traffic and takes
inclines in its stride; the overdrive gearbox operates easily and
quickly making cruising comfortable at speed.


The restoration resulted in Triumph Sports Six Club International
Concours awards with Best in Show in 2001. Master Class Winner in
2002. Best Herald in 2003 and Best interior in 2004. It then won
the TSSC South of England Best Herald title in 2008.
Arriving at the sale with a UK registration document and a fresh
MoT test certificate. what is probably one of the very best Herald
Convertibles remaining is ready to enjoy immediately.
