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.

The Inspection

There were a number of problems that were discovered over the first few weeks of ownership, to list but a few:
  • The bottoms of both doors we very rusty
  • The Bonnet front panel was being held together by the paint
  • The 2 footwells had been bodged badly
  • The rear deck had a ripple effect
  • The front wings had undergone a make-shift repair
  • The dash looked as if someone had bitten a chunk out of it
  • The header rail and side rails of the hood were no longer joined on one side

So why did I buy it.....partly because Michele (my wife) said I could only buy one if it was Wedgwood Blue, this narrowed the search quite a bit, it was local, the sun was shining and it was a concertible.....I had no option really!
