Triumph Herald Convertible APA477A

Triumph Herald Convertible

Great photo – just a shame about the numberplate!

Taken direct from the advert for sale.
“This early Herald Convertible was first registered in 1960. Presenting nicely in its glossy coat of red there are some imperfections to speak of, but nothing untoward. What’s more the car remains entirely corrosion-free, and has an MOT until April 2016.

The interior has been recently re-upholstered in piped black leatherette and retains a nice period finish. The carpets are in good order, and the original wood dash is free from any major wear. Problem areas such as the boot floor remain solid.

Present in the history file is V5C and the current MOT until April. There are several old MOT certificates along with a handful of parts invoices from recent years. The car is an early Herald 948 but is fitted with a 1300cc engine. The hood will also require repair work.”

Additional info.
This car has paperwork with the Commission number of Y19658CV it was first registered July 1st 1960 (DVLA) making it an older registered car than VDL634 however a much later build. Our records have an October 1960 build date for the car (Y19568CV). The original registration number has, of course been lost, and a replacement added – probably quite a while ago hence the A plate – the DVLA now do issue more age-related plates so the new owner could get a new 6 digit number that would suit the car better – and a silver and black numberplate too!

Update 2
Originally from the seller back in February 2013 the vendor stated the commission number as Y19558CV however this may have been a typo on the email reply. (?)

Additional paperwork with the car has a Commission number of G46887 – a saloon, with a build date of June 1960, remember with the registration date of July 1st 1960. The original engine has been replaced and there is no paperwork to indicate a Y or, indeed G original engine number.
