Features include: * 948 CC overhead valve inline 4 cylinder engine with dual SU carburetors * 4-speed manual transmission * Independent suspension * White stripe radial tires * Front seat belts * Dual exterior mirrors * Jack & spare tire Here is a cute little British sports car you don't see come up for sale very often. This is a very early Herald convertible with the desirable 948cc dual carb engine. The Triumph Herald register currently lists only 63 948cc convertible cars surviving globally in their database out of the 8,258 948cc convertibles originally produced. We acquired this car from a British gentleman 80+ years young from Southern California. He owned the car from 2009 & drove it quite frequently. He reported that the engine had been overhauled by the previous owner he purchased it from. Judging by the way it runs, it most likely has. I just had the twin SU carbs overhauled professionally by National Carburetor Company in Jacksonville, FL. I have owned several Herald convertibles over the last 10 years & this one is the best driving one I ever had the pleasure to drive. It drives out quiet & smooth. Easy shifting transmission, sharp brakes, tight steering, with no engine overheating issues. It can carry 4 people in relative comfort when you consider how small the car really is. It can make a complete circle turnaround in a 25' radius. The tilt up bonnet encompasses the front fenders making for easy access to the engine bay. Please call Stuart @ 912-634-4949 for complete details. We are offering a fun to drive, inexpensive classic British sports car for entry level intro to the collector car hobby. This will be the ideal car for those on a bargain budget. So much fun for so little money. Thanks for looking. Offered @ $9,500
