This lovely Herald 13/60 was owned by one family in Derby from 1971 until 2005. In the late 1990s the car was subject to a full body off restoration. numerous photographs of which are present in the history file with a few examples being shown here. The result was a show standard car which was described by its owner at the time as concours and valued accordingly for insurance purposes.

In 2005 the car was purchased by a gentleman in East Sussex who was obviously intent on keeping the car in first class condition and proceeded to recondition the engine and upgrade it for modern unleaded fuel. Again there are photographs in the history file relating to this work. Between 2005 and 2008 the car travelled over 6000 miles and was obviously being used and enjoyed.

The car passed to its last owner in 2008 and appears to have remained largely unused. though with a number of services. for the next few years. travelling only around 500 miles in total.

The current MOT expires on 15th December 2016 and has no advisory comments. I have. however. just fitted four new tyres as I felt that the existing tyres were unsuitable on grounds of their age. The history file contains 15 MOTs running from 1997 at 61027 miles to the current one issued in December 2015 at 74713 miles.

The car remains in totally solid structural and body work condition. its mechanics are excellent and the interior is outstanding. The paintwork and under bonnet area have some superficial cosmetic blemishes which would appear to have arisen from the lack of use in recent years. However I have no hesitation in confirming that this is far and away the best Herald I have ever driven. including the many examples I owned and used back in the 1970s (I am. regrettably. not in the first flush of youth!).

In summary. this is a completely sound and extremely pretty car which needs nothing to be done before it can be used confidently and enjoyed with pride. It drives. steers and stops extremely well and is very capable of keeping up with modern traffic conditions. If the new owner wished to invest a little time and expenditure on cosmetic improvements the car could easily be returned to show condition and value.

It really does need to be seen and driven to be fully appreciated.
