Triumph Herald Convertible

“Triumph herald convertible 948 very rare car indeed according to practical classics june 2002. Historic vehicle tax exempt. I bought this car in 2005 has my wife has always liked them with the intention to get it mintThis was on the road when bought in 2005. But it has sat in my workshop ever since so we have now decided to get rid of it Now about the car when i bought it it had rolled a few feet down a drive in to another car and hit the tow bar. No claim was made on the car as the owner owned both cars. It damaged the front panel slightly bent the grill frame bent the bar behind the front panel and knocked bonnet bars out of line The damage is very little and so easy to put right All shown in photos This damage is very minor. There is another front panel with the car so a good one can be made out of the two Not sure if been restored at some time but car is solid with just bits of surface rust underneath. The underneath is same colour as body work and not black under seal trying to hide stuff The car starts and drives and stops The hood needs replacing it is there but has bits of black tape on a few tears Same as the interior seats would need re trimming. Bit of wiring needs sorting etc etc this is a restoration project to get mint or just get it on road and use as is with very little work There is no tax or mot so will need to be trailed away. I can deliver ask for price This would be a very nice project to do has it is not a rot box i just dont have time and to be honest im more a mini man 🙂 Back to the bit from practical classics in 2002 there is one in there and part of the right up says pauls car is a serius rarity – the experts reckon theres only one other 948 convertible on the road in the uk but there are still a fair few coupes and saloons about. pauls car in the magazine is in mint condition and i have the magazine to go with the car. Please ask any questions or even better come and take a look Thanks for looking good luck”

Copied straight from the advert (some bad spelling) – the reference to ‘Paul’s Car’ is of, course for VDL634 when it was owned by Paul Feast and featured on the front cover of Practical Classics.
