Triumph Herald Coupe

The Triumph Herald range first appeared in 1959 and offered economical family motoring with sporty Sixties flair. Triumph took the unusual step of building the new model on a separate chassis and assembling the body from sub-assembled front, mid and rear sections. This allowed for a wide variety of body styles including a pretty 2 door Coupe.

Because the roof section of the Herald was a separate assembly it was easy for Triumph to add a low back coupe roof to an otherwise standard saloon body. Most Herald Coupes were finished in attractive two-tone paint finishes and all were equipped with the twin carb, 948cc Standard 10 derived engine. Today the Herald Coupe is a rare and sought after classic Triumph.
