Additional Information: Is this your car? Tell us about it!
When I was a boy my dad had a Triumph Herald "S". He bought it new in Salisbury, Wiltshire in 1961, a year before I was born. The car was registered XWV 777. In 1975 he sold the Herald, buying a new Mini 1000. My dad retained the number and the Herald was re-registered as 90 EWV. I have no knowledge of the car after that.

Info: I have always been interested in cars and remember the Herald fondly. My dad had paid extra to have the white bumpers fitted over the standard tin ones of the time. I also remember vividly that it had a 948cc engine. The paint colour was primrose yellow and the interior vinyl was black, piped in white. A friend of mine's dad had a 12/50 with a wooden dash. Our "S" had a grey/black painted dash and if memory serves me correctly a white speedo that went up to only 80m.p.h. There was no handle on the bonnet. An unusual feature was that the grille had no central bar.
I loved cleaning the wheels and the car in general. It had some great attributes. I can remember running out of petrol and my dad saying not to worry as there was a reserve tank. A great feature, along with a terrific two-tone horn and that amazing turning circle. I found out later that the "S" was a run-out model, using up the 948cc engines. It was such a wonderful car.
So many happy memories. I don't suppose anyone knows if any examples of the model remain?
If you are still compiling info, I have many memories I'd be happy to share and can probably remember some more technical information about the car!
