This is a low budget fun car


Needed paint job and also needed new top, tires and most important TLC.

General Comments:

This is by far the slowest car I have ever owned, but the most fun. I can put 4 people (not big people) and go for a ride with the top down. It might take me a lot longer to get there, but we always have fun.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The review is great, except I'd like to know what a Herald 1200 (in the described condition) would cost? I have one in storage that I'm going to sell, and need to know what the market value is. Thanks. I'll appreciated emailed response (s) to

Where can I get a convertible roof conversion kit for a Triumph Herald 1250 with hard top roof.
