1960 Rare Triumph Herald display chassis. SOLD

Not for sale - it has been sold via a Car and Classic Free Ad
Hello,
Thank you for looking at this advert for a display chassis. In short, as far as I have found out, Leyland Triumph made and distributed several chassis to technical colleges up and down the country in the 1960s. I do not know when this one was built but it strikes me that it must be early 60s due to the seat and the engine. This one has been in the local FE college since at least, the early seventies. This is both a good and a slightly less good thing.

Basically this was a running, open chassis and engine, when it was originally built, it was entirely possible(if massively dangerous) to drive it around on private land. Fully braked with a clutch etc, this is basically a Triumph Herald minus a body and an interior.

There is a serial number and presentation plate on the chassis as well as a kind of cage to mount the Battery and the minimal dashboard on.

It is rust free as far as I can tell and has been stored indoors for the vast majority of the last forty years. It has been treated to coats of red primer as well as other paints to protect it. I have had the engine running for a short time because I cannot vouch for the fluids inside, it was smooth and it started well considering how long it has been stood. I have been told it has had a new gasket set in the carburettor.

The downside of residing in an FE college for so many years is that it has had all the respect lavished on it that 17 year olds can muster.... there are dials missing, dented side rails, and nuts and bolts that are wrong. The Radiator will need refurbing, the rubber will need replacing, (the engine mounts are shot).The clutch and brake master cylinders are both missing, I don't know what is in the brake drums and I cannot vouch for the quality of the gearbox although the gears seem to be easy to select.

In brief, many small parts are missing but a Herald fan would be able to find them relatively straightforwardly and few cars are as easy to work on.

To conclude the negatives, if you are worried about the bits that are missing and the state of the fixtures that are in place, you need to come and have a look before considering buying.

You could buy this to restore to the original spec and then have a rare Herald display chassis in your personal collection, it certainly appeals to me in this way.

Probably not wise to build the Baja style sand rail out of it that I briefly considered.

You could also buy this for the parts, the suspension corners have quite possibly never seen any real weight at all. There are drum brakes all round and the original, pretty if only to look at(please don't put them on a car) crossply tyres.

The main chassis rails are in superb condition and remind me of my Bond Equipe. The rear boot outriggers have been removed for health and safety reasons as have the ends of the bonnet cross bar. The engine and its ancillaries all seem to be working although I haven't tested the dynamo.

Happy to chat outside of work hours about the chassis so feel free to call me. Thanks again for looking.
Calvin.
