Triumph Herald Coupé (231)


This classic British car was modelled by both Dinky and Corgi and is the perfect example of how differently each company approached their models in the early 1960s. Dinky chose the sensible two-door saloon version, whereas Corgi modelled the rather racier fastback coupé. Furthermore, Corgi added an authentic lifting bonnet and a highly detailed engine – including a removable air filter.When you factor in the Corgi’s carefully moulded red interior and ‘Glidamatic’ suspension, it was absolutely no competition as far as schoolboys of the era were concerned!

Corgi’s Herald was launched in 1961 and stayed in the range until 1965. It was available in two versions of the original car’s famous two-tone paintwork – in either gold/white or pale blue/white. Just over 800,000 were made.

My dad had a Triumph Herald cabriolet when I was a child. We moved from Lancaster Pa to Phx Az in it and my moms ‘57 VW Beetle oval window in 1961. I’ve only seen one Herald since in my life time. To me, it’s the best looking Triumph ever made. The Corgi model is excellent and brings back some memories :)

The past in my hands

Dear friends.
English is not my language, so forgive any mistake.
This model is like a travel to the past. It is exactly like the original I had when I was a young boy. I congratulate you for such a marvelous reproduction.
Kind regards Fernando
