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.

Attractive Model

The Triumph Herald Coupe is well detailed, paintwork excellent, the lifting bonnet is a brilliant fit to the body and was in its day a much more attractive proposition to the Dinky model(which wasn't bad) and compares favourably with modern diecast detailed models. I passed my driving test in a Herald in the '70's.

Nice little model with opening bonnet. Good finish, pity the doors and boot don't open as well but well made and presented.
