Triumph Herald 2000

Welcome to my blog! Originally produced as a way of keeping track of the various car shows I’d attended  with my Triumph Herald, and the two chassis up rebuilds she has gone through. It has now grown to encompass a collection of other stuff too.

Amongst this ‘stuff’ is a selection of 1960s Triumph sales brochures, and a page of ‘interestingly’ modified Herald pics gleaned from around the web over the years (Other Bits).  

The blog has also been expanded to encompass our matching Viking Fibreline caravan and Triumph 2500S estate.

Triumph Herald and Viking Fibreline
Our Triumph Herald and Viking Fibreline. We were somewhere in the middle of France, on our way to the ECCR in Luxembourg in 2018.

Purchased in 1979 as my first car, my Herald has undergone two body off restorations over the years and has grown from a 1200 to a 2000. It’s been a great journey, and I’ve had lots of fun out of it. Adventures include doing the strip at Santa Pod, several charity race days at Snetterton and the Prescott Hillclimb. More recently we have had three trips to Europe, including one to Luxembourg, towing our matching caravan.


Viking Fibreline Caravan

In July 2016 we purchased a Viking Fibreline caravan, while it was in good condition overall, it had been badly painted by the previous owner, so was stripped down and repainted in matching blue and white.

Our latest addition to the fleet is a Triumph 2500S estate. Part one saw the underside rebuilt, part two saw the top side rebuilt. We now use this as an everyday car. It also tows a Sprite Musketeer caravan, this is currently undergoing restoration and will soon feature on the blog.
