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.

10CR'09 Entry

Well I managed to get my entry in for the 10CR next year. Right now I'm the only Herald Coupé on the list (#29). As 2009 is the 50th anniversary of the Triumph Herald, it seems only fitting to do it in the Coupé rather than the comfy armchair of the 2000 saloon.

Here's the chassis with the front suspension going on. The wishbones have been powder coated and I'm using Polybush throughout. I'm using Canley's trunnionless vertical links.

Lack of maintenance is no excuse, but witnessing first hand the joys of a broken vertical link at about 45 mph on a narrow country lane with traffic coming towards us, is an experience I don't wish to repeat!
