Triumph Herald S

The Triumph Herald range appeared in 1959 and offered affordable motoring with a sporting feel and some Sixties glamour. Triumph built the Herald on a separate chassis upon which separate sub-assembled panels were fitted. This unusual method of construction saved Standard-Triumph the expense of costly tooling and allowed a diverse range of body styles to be offered.

In 1961 a basic version of the Herald saloon was added to the range. The new Herald S used the same body as the normal saloon but had less trim and exterior bright-work. The Herald had been well received by the public when it first appeared and the Herald S appealed to fleet users (such as driving schools and local councils) and private buyers looking for even more economy.
