1962 TRIUMPH HERALD 3493 MD For Sale
|3493 MD was first registered in 1962 and we acquired it in 1968 from Graham Hillís Speedwell Motors in London, who had taken it in p/x toward an exotic item.|
Originally a 1200 de Luxe Saloon, it has had two rebuilds, the first in the 1970s (by us) and the second in the 1990s by the Motor House, Hungerford, Berks. Very soon afterwards it was the cover feature in the Triumph Clubís magazine, Courier. The restoration was aimed at safety and longevity, not the strict authenticity required for concours cars.
Departures from original specification as follows:
Chassis and bodywork Waxoyled to inhibit rust.
Engine from Mk 4 Spitfire: 1300 with twin SUs.
Diaphragm clutch. Alternator.
Brakes vacuum servo.
Re-cambered rear spring.
Four-branch SAH manifold, and stainless steel exhaust.
Powder coated wheels (which are now showing some rust).
Electric screen washer.
Quartz iodine headlamps.
Interior: seats re-upholstered in original red. New carpets in black.
Exterior: Old white and grey paint replaced with our choice of British Racing Green, with white roof and wheels.
The fuel pump was replaced recently, and the one supplied by Rimmer Bros is of the later design as original type not available.
General condition very good, with a few very minor blemishes. MOT to Jan 25th, 2019
Minimum use during last ten years, mainly to/from MOT. Garaged, insured and MOTd every year. The speedometer shows about 60,000-odd miles, but this is no longer representative. We are only selling owing to our personal mobility problems. The car deserves to be used to stay in good trim.
The attached photos were taken last year for Classic Line insurers, who valued the car at £10,000. The number alone is worth over £2,000.
Sensible offers are invited for this attractive motor still with many years of life ahead.
