I Purchased this Herald in September 2012 from the son of the original owner. It has been sitting, mostly unused, but garaged, for the past 25 years. It was driven about 29,000 miles.
The car has little rust on the body, but from sitting so long all the rubber bits have perished and the frame was rusty. To save it a total off-frame restoration is in progress. The cost of this project will far exceed its value even though I doing lots of the work myself. I believe the value comes in learning the process of restoration. I also like the idea of preserving a car no one else has or knows about. When done another forgotten little British car will live again. It appears that the color is original; (but repainted) the interior is mostly original; the carpet and convertible top have been replaced.
