Welcome!

In 1998 I bought a Triumph Herald 13/60, here you can read about it's restoration and share in a few photo's from it's travels. Please feel free to leave comments to any of the posts, of even email me if you want to.

Chassis

The chassis was found on Ebay (where else?), it was a bargain price and appeared solid. It came with all the suspension and a diff, so seemed liked an opportunity not to be missed.

In December 2006 it was stripped and sent off to JY Classics who had it shot-blasted and powder coated, but only after repairing one of the main rails. But all in all a solid unit that was now looking beautiful with its new black sheen.

It wasn't until November 2007 that the chassis arrived with me down in Devon, but it's arrival did herald (sorry!) the start of the next phase.

In between the old chassis going and this one arriving the time was spent on a minor engine rebuild and the stripping, cleaning and painting of the steering & suspension parts (more on these 2 items later).
