Sellers original description:
Here we have my Herald. I am the second owner, I bought it about 7 years ago with about 18000 miles on the clock!
The cars bodywork/chassis was very good but it did require 2 new outriggers, 3 wheel arches and new sills and valances. It was then resprayed in triumph white 2k.
The underside was stripped to bare metal, painted with por15 then treated with dinitrol.
The car was then fitted up with all new rubbers and chrome as well as a set of refurbished vitesse bumpers.
Despite the low mileage a lot of mechanical work was required including an engine rebuild and a recon gearbox. The brakes were rebuilt and silicone fluid used in both brake and clutch systems.
A period alexander twin carb conversion has been fitted. The choke cable needs attention but i only use the car in summer so it wasn't a problem
The front suspension, engine side panels and wheels were all powder coated.
The heater box, rad, fuel tank and rocker cover were resprayed in 2k.
A new wiring loom with fuses was fitted.
Inside is as it left the factory apart from the carpet which i replaced. There is a period radio (not wired up) and oil pressure, water temp and vacuum gauges.
Its now done 23000 miles and is still in mint condition and never goes out in the rain.
This must be one of the best examples left.
