Well, turns out the wife wasn't that keen after all....she wants me to sell the herald this year
Nothing against the car, it's just she likes her modern comforts.
I'm going to advertise it on here first, for any takers.
So here goes.
Tootles the Herald - it's a 1968 13/60
It's got a genuine 68k on the clock and it has been very well looked after in its lifetime. It's wedgewood blue and the paint work is in excellent condition. Don't get me wrong, it's had paint corrected in various places, but it shines up beautifully.
The underneath is extremely solid, it's recently had an outrigger replaced that had a small hole. But it's all waxoyled underneath now with no problems.
Everything you could want to be overhauled, has been. The brakes are new, master cylinder is new, tyres are new, mounded carpet set inside is new. The engine has been completely rebuilt and runs beautifully. It's had a new rear valance as it had started to rust through and a new boot seal. The headlights have also just had a set of brand new halogen conversion headlights fitted.
There are a Few niggly bits as per most classic cars, the rear overrider chrome bits are shot, I can't justify replacing them before I sell it. And there is a spring missing from the locking mechanism on the door, so the door does shut, just not every time.
If anyone is interested and would like a test drive please give me a shout. It truly is a lovely car.
