231 - Triumph Herald Coupé


£32.99

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.

Great

Another stunning model from Corgi model club, fine casting and superb paint finish, looks great alongside my Bentley Continental. The shut lines on the opening bonnet are much tighter than they look in the publicity photographs. I’m looking forward to more British manufacturers models from this period.
