Looking More Like a Car Again

Here's the Coupé looking more like a car again. The chassis is now properly rolling and the bulkhead and rear tub bolted down. The dashboard is in. The roof is painted and the duo-tone on the bonnet is done. It's now back round the painters for polishing. It looks great.

Chassis Complete!

Here's a few pics from Thursday taken by Paul - annoyingly I left the memory card for my camera at home. Duoh!

All the chassis components are now on, brake lines, fuel lines, front & rear suspension, diff and steering.

Here are the doors (hanging upside down) looking good in their duo-tone cactus and sebring paint.

The bonnet is nearly finished just waiting for the cactus on the lower half of the wings. The roof is still in etch primer but should be painted cactus this week or next.

972 NHW - Where Are You Now?

I found these photographs of a Herald Coupé I owned back around the year 2000. I sold it a few years later, but I'd be interested to hear from any previous or current owners.

It was fitted with a single Weber, roll cage and a pair of Cibie Oscars. Downsides were the most uncomfortable bucket seats, lack of overdrive and the MkI chassis.

In November 2001 the Coupé was featured in Practical Classics along side Karl Dandridge's 6 cylinder Coupé.
