Additional Information: Is this your car? Tell us about it!
The condition is amazing, it's never been welded and only a couple a small bits of paintwork. It now has 48000 miles on it and it attends a few car shows each year providing there is no chance of it getting rained on !!
The colour is powder blue with pale grey-blue seats, dark grey carpets all of which are as new, it has the black flecked dash with white instrument dials. I've recently had to replace all the tyres - the MOT man told me that the cross-ply tyres on the car were approx 35 years old and the rubber had gone hard and started to crack - he couldn't remember when he last saw Dunlop Groundhog tyres !!

Info: I've owned a 948cc herald for about 6 years and the car has quite an interesting history. It was purchased new by a lady in Eastbourne, Sussex in October 1960 from the Standard Triumph dealer in the town - Burnups Ltd., Meads Road, Eastbourne. In 1961 she also had the rubber bumper covers fitted. I have every invoice, tax disc and MOT certificate for the car.
It was in regular use until about 1967 when for health reasons she gave up driving and the car was put in a heated (and carpeted !!) garage under her house and it was taken out once a year for a service, MOT and a new battery - driven to and from the Triumph dealer by her gardener. This routine carried on for 30 years until in 1997 the owner died and the car then passed in to the hands of a friend of mine with mere 39000 miles on the clock. During it's 30 year hibernation it had only done 83 miles !!
