The last derivative of the successful Herald range appeared in 1967, the Herald 13/60. The 13/60, as the name suggests, used a 1300 (1296cc), 60 (61bhp) engine shared with the Spitfire. This lively little engine ensured that the Herald could still keep its sporty, economical performance that had made it so popular when it first appeared.
To distinguish the 13/60 from earlier models a new grille and bonnet were fitted in a style similar to the six cylinder Vitesse model. The interior received some minor improvements and in this form the 13/60 survived until production of all Herald models ended in 1971.
