Triumph Herald 13/60 Convertible
Overview
The 13/60 was the last version of the Herald, intended to update the original concept for a final fling. Production started at the end of August 1967 and the model was launched in the October. It was fitted with the 1296cc engine which it shared with the Triumph 1300 FWD car. This gave it 25% more power than the 1200 model. The same engine was also used in a higher-tuned form in the Mk III Spitfire and 1300TC.

It was available in the usual Saloon, Estate and Convertible versions but with revised front end styling based on the Vitesse bonnet fitted with single 7 inch headlamps. It had redesigned and more comfortable seats plus a revised dashboard.

Later cars had larger fuel tanks (9 gallon, from the Vitesse, as opposed to 6.5 gallon) and were fitted with Mk IV Spitfire steering locks

As with the rest of the range, parts availability is very good with most mechanical parts easy to come by. Original and reproduction body panels plus repair sections for the most vulnerable areas are also obtainable from a large number of suppliers.

Even in standard form it is the most driveable of the range. Heralds in general regularly figure in articles about good starter classics in terms of ease of maintenance, value for money and just plain fun.

Convertible production ended in May 1971. Good examples are highly sought after and can fetch good prices, well above saloons.
