1968 Triumph Herald 1200 Convertible

No Reserve

From a deceased estate; recently recommissioned with many new parts; use and improve

This Triumph Herald 1200 Convertible was first registered in March 1968. Nothing is known of the subsequent history of the car but our vendor acquired it via eBay in April 2021. The listing provided by the seller stated that he had acquired the car as a lockdown project in October 2020.

Various new parts were reputedly fitted including: all four tyres; front brake calipers, pads and hoses; rear wheel cylinders and brake shoes; wiper blades; headlamp bulbs; front indicator/sidelight units; door and boot rubbers; radiator and heater hoses; thermostat and housing; voltage regulator; reconditioned dynamo; engine mount; starter solenoid; battery leads; distributor cap; rotor arm; points; plugs and leads; fuel pipe; rocker gasket; fresh oil and filter; air filter; fuel filter; bumper rubbers; floor mats; chrome wing mirrors; new viny hood cover etc.

The listing further stated that the body and chassis were ‘very solid’ with minimal signs of previous welding. The interior was described as ‘presentable but not perfect’ with a wooden dash from a 13/60 with ‘all instruments working as they should’ and a retro-styled FM radio/USB/SD/Bluetooth head unit.

The seller also stated that he had repainted the car himself on his drive, admitting that it was not done to a professional standard. This is certainly the case and the paintwork is best described as poor, the panel fit also leaving something to be desired!

While it has been starting promptly as we have moved it around on site, it seems that the brakes no longer work so they will need attention.

On offer here from a deceased estate, it is being sold at no reserve and strictly ‘as seen’ so the best bid takes it home.
