Launched in 1959, the small family car proved quite popular with customers. It was available in a variety of different body styles including a saloon, coupe, convertible, estate and a van.
The fact that so many different options were available definitely had something to do with the Herald’s success. It was an affordable car that offered something for everybody. Whether you were after a smaller coupe or a slightly larger van, the Triumph Herald had you covered.
Styling-wise, the Herald wasn’t necessarily the most innovative or interesting, however it wasn’t ugly either. Looking back at the vehicle now, nearly 60 years after it was introduced, it definitely had a certain quality to it that made it look quite charming.
Although the vehicle was rather small, it was the perfect size for a family. It was comfortable and reliable, which is all you can really ask for from a family car.
Powered by a 948cc OHV l4 engine, the original Herald was capable of producing 34.5 bhp (26 kW). It had a top speed of around 70.9 mph (114.1 km/h).
The Triumph Herald is a great example of a classic car that looked good and offered a comfortable and smooth driving experience.
It is believed that over 500,000 Heralds were produced between 1959 and 1971. The car remains popular toady and you can get your hands on one for as little as £5000.
