Welcome to the Triumph Herald Archive
1959 was a key year in the motoring world, seeing the launch of the Austin Mini, the Ford Anglia and the Triumph Herald. Over 100,000 948 Triumph Heralds were made from 1959 and beyond its production life of 1961 with knock down kits being exported around the world. The 948 Triumph Herald was available as a Saloon and a Coupe, then later as a Convertible.
Not many Triumph Herald 948s now exist, with the Triumph Vitesse and later larger engined Triumph Heralds (1200 and 1360) being found in far greater numbers. This site is a tribute to the early Triumph Herald and an opportunity to find out more to what happened to all the cars - how many DO exist (DVLA have the figure around 300) and what happened to the cars that have not survived. Triumph Herald 948 owners, both current and previous, are encouraged to contribute to this site to build a comprehensive archive to the car. No accurate figures seem to exist, with official sources constantly changing with the discovery of 'new' Triumph Herald 948's found. Who knows perhaps one day we will be able to account for every car produced, but we cannot do this without your help and support. So if you do (or did) own a Triumph Herald 948, tell us about it. Good experiences, bad experiences, anything you can do to help the database grow - and as a thank you we have produced a Triumph Herald game for you to enjoy.
Since triumph-herald.com has started we have had a fantastic response from owners from around the globe, ex employees (and their families) from Standard Triumph and many NEW items of information added, to record the cars introduction. We hope with your help the website will continue to flourish and find out more information in the future; with your help and input.
The story of the Triumph Herald is fascinating, from its proving run through Africa to the Rallies of Monte Carlo, RAC and Tulip. Yet, today most of the stories and details regarding the Triumph Herald have been lost. This site is focusing on the era 1959 - 1961 and collating an archive of every 948cc car built, where they were exported to and snippets of information sent through from enthusiasts, Standard Triumph employees and their families.
