This 1967 Triumph Herald has been owned by the current owner for several
years. This white Herald boasts a 4-speed manual transmission, a small
1147 C.C. engine and possesses the good looks to stop a clock ! Built
on a platform that served several models, including the Vitesse, the GT6
and the Spitfire, the Herald is a vehicle all unto itself.
With a white over red naughette interior, this quaint Triumph is sure to
please and is a sure head turner. Not only is it a head turner, it also
comprises one of the smallest and shortest turning radiuses of any
vehicle its size out there. While not a turnpike cruiser, this Herald’s
best setting is either by your beach resort, near a vineyard or a quick
jaunt up to your local Car Show to demonstrate and show one of the true
automotive British icons of the 1960’s.
The frame and chassis are mostly clean and rust free. Some minor surface
rust is evident, and can be easily corrected. The overall chassis is
straight, as are the body panels.
The original wooden handcrafted dashboard is in good condition, with
minor cracks as would be expected of a vehicle of this age. The nice
thing about most of the replacement parts for this Herald, including the
dashboard, is that they are readily available through aftermarket
sources, such as Moss Motors, and the like. There is enough ongoing
interest and enough examples produced as well as carry over parts from
other Triumph Models, such as running gears and control items to be
available for purchase. Not too bad for a 52+ year old vehicle.
All said, this Herald is in a Class of its own. Clean, sharp lines,
contemporary styling, ease of maintenance and upkeep, affordability and
above the board uniqueness and rarity are hard to find from a ’60’s
