The car remained in her ownership up until April 2016 by which time it had covered a warranted 82,000 miles. The history file includes the original owner's hand book and a thick pile of service invoices. The file also contains copies of correspondence between the owner and the company that refurbished the car in the 1980s, which make very interesting reading. The car has old MOTs going back to 1986 and a period radio. The present MOT certificate expires on June 24th 2016.
Lovely car with only 4 previous owners and has been well looked after all its life!! In Valencia blue with black upholstery, detailed engine bay and long MOT the 13/60 is a joy to drive. Legendary turning circle means it can turn around in the smallest of spaces. Comes with sports steering wheel, alternator for reliable charging, strong headlights etc. She comes fully serviced and ready to go. This car deserves to go to a good home where she will continue to be cherished. Very difficult to find a Herald in this condition and whilst not perfect, represents great value for money. Put a smile on your face.
This lovely Herald 13/60 was owned by one family in Derby from 1971 until 2005.In the late 1990s the car was subject to a full body off restoration, numerous photographs of which are present in the history file with a few examples being shown here. The result was a show standard car which was described by its owner at the time as concours and valued accordingly for insurance purposes.In 2005 the car was purchased by a gentleman in East Sussex who was obviously intent on keeping the car in first class condition and proceeded to recondition the engine and upgrade it for modern unleaded fuel. Again there are photographs in the history file relating to this work. Between 2005 and 2008 the car travelled over 6000 miles and was obviously being used and enjoyed.The car passed to its last owner in 2008 and appears to have remained largely unused, though with a number of services, for the next few years, travelling only around 500 miles in total.The current MOT expires on 15th December 2016 and has no advisory comments. I have, however, just fitted four new tyres as I felt that the existing tyres were unsuitable on grounds of their age. The history file contains 15 MOTs running from 1997 at 61027 miles to the current one issued in December 2015 at 74713 miles. The car remains in totally solid structural and body work condition, its mechanics are excellent and the interior is outstanding. The paintwork and engine ancillaries have a few superficial cosmetic blemishes which would appear
