Triumph Herald Advert

Don't you just want to take it home? It's sad that we don't see more of these in the wild, but like most cars of the era, the Herald was biodegradable - especially in convertible form.  

Spitfire drivers would probably recognize the mechanicals in the Herald - they were closely related and it's not too much of a leap to consider it a four seat Spitfire. The chrome headlight peaks and "flinlets" at the rear capture the time in which it was designed. The Herald was built from 1959 through 1971. 

With its wood dash and sharp Italian styling by Michelotti, the Herald was a small car with a bit of flair.

  1. Had a chance to work on many of these square Spitfires during my days in the early 70s at Freeman's Sports Cars in Mobile..
