Triumph Herald Convertible 1968 - Genuine CV convertible, 13/60.
Please note the colour isn't bright red but a nicer dark red almost maroon (photos make it look brighter!)
MOT exempt next month, road tax exempt and insurance around £80 a year.
Cheap motoring and it a 4 seater convertible!
Currently needs a little tinkering before going back on the road- no MOT.
It starts easily, first time and the engine sounds good on its 1300cc single carb.
The gearbox selects nicely but the clutch needs double de-clutching, probably the
slave cylinder needs replacing- master cylinder is holding fluid.
Accelerator pedal is mounted a bit strangely to the floor, it works but is a bit floppy!
Presentable, the drivers door skin needs replacing/ repairing (panels readily available),
the rest of the bodywork isn't rusty. Front valance needs a little work with those white rubber inserts.
The paint is quite nice from a foot away but close inspection shows micro bubbling here and there,
it's fine really but needs mentioning. Flatting with 2000 grade paper may sort it.
Chassis is all good and solid, floorpan is solid, where it meets the heel board it's all good.
Looks good, needs a carpet set, dash is nice, rear seat nice condition, front seats look OK from above
but stitching has come away underneath. wood veneer in nice condition.
I see this Triumph as a light renovation project- a bit of tinkering over a few weekends would see
it ready for the road- breeze around in it for the summer and enjoy then maybe take it off the road
in the winter to restore.
I am in Finchampstead, 15 minutes from Reading, Berkshire.
Delivery can be arranged.
I have the V5 reg doc.
