231 - Triumph Herald Coupé


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.

Inoubliable Triumph Herald

Je possède le modèle original que j'ai placé à coté de la " nouvelle " qui est tout aussi belle et je ne sais dire qu'une seule chose : bravo !

As good as the original

I purchased this model because I wanted to compare with the original model, which I still have from my childhood. All I can say is what an amazing reproduction.

A perfect experience

I was delighted to see that the Corgi Model Club now ships to continental Europe. What a great opportunity to bring back memories of my childhood! I live in Germany and owned many Corgi models as a child in the 60s, only a few of which survived. The Triumph Herald was my first purchase from CMC. It arrived within 6 days and the quality of the model and the box is superb. I am looking forward to more.

Just as I remember it from 1961

I am tempted to indulge in some fairly bad puns on the car’s name for this review but I will content myself with saying that the triumph Herald Coupé is one of the earliest Corgis I remember from my youth. I loved it then and I love this replica now, especially as it is in the colours of my long-gone childhood model. It goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway, that this is another fine replica from the Club and is exactly as I remember my original from way back in the early 1960s.
