One other thought. Try asking on the Yahoo Herald group - over 400 members with all kinds of club affiliations. The URL is http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/triumph_herald/
Cheers,

For some reason this story has really "grabbed me" - I hope there's a happy ending  (tho I fear the worst )

I've checked through my records and unfortunately it doesn't show up. The car in question is a Herald 1200 Coupe. Registration records show that the number 596DXX "was made available" in 1962, though that alone wouldn't confirm the year of registration, some numbers were not issued to vehicles until a couple of years after they were first made available. There is a further clue in that the front valance looks like an early pattern which was deleted in June 1962, so it's a safe bet that the car was registered sometime during 1962.
Good luck in tracking it down. Coupes are arguably the most desireable of all Heralds,
Cheers,
Bill.



Thanks for looking, Bill - I really appreciate it.

Thanks Raider.  My natural tendency is toward pessimism, but I'm trying to remain upbeat.  The kindness and enthusiasm of people here has helped, for sure.

I'll keep you all posted...

Bill, if I wasn't a heterosexual, I'd give you a blooming great big kiss!  You're a hero - what a great idea!  The car has been located, via the Yahoo! group.

Only trouble is, it's in New Zealand.

On the good side, it's owned by John Kipping - so I reckon he's taken good care of it.  He bought it from my Godmother (indirectly, as she asked a friend to sell it for her).

I've had contact from John, and <fingers crossed> there's a happy ending - if not now, then at some point in the future.

There arent many more men that can take better care of a Triumph than Mr Kipping Im sure!

Hope this works out for you! What an amazing tale!

Found out how much shipping costs from NZ yet?

At least you know it's still alive - that's the main thing.

Crikey!

That's a marvellous story, Mr Kipping will look after her.

By the way John appeared on the front page of the Daily Telegraph motoring section back in about 1997 filling up a light blue Herald Coupe- this must have been your car. This was about the time that Lead Free fuel was introduced and John was stated as saying that Lead Substitute was not necessary.

Also have a word with Dave Pearson at Canley Classics- as John used to be in business with Dave. 01676 541 360



Club Triumph Round Britain Reliability Run (Part of the organising team, what a team)!
RBRR is the best car event in the UK, not probably, it is!

1970 GT6 Mk.2: Royal Blue 6 RBRRs (98, 00,02,04,06 & 10), 2 10CRs (03 & 07). 2 HCRs 1 LCC, lots of Autosolos and numerous track days. Bought in 1983, crikey where did the time go! Now running the Roy Lacey cooling system!

1969 2.5Pi Mk.1: Slate Grey 3 10CRs (05,09 & 15), 3 RBRRs (08, 12 & 16), 3 HCRs, 2 LCCs. A few alloy panels, does need the pi kit fitting. Bought April '04. Needs paint! Just fitted some new 7J Minilites-not copies!

1967 Spitfire mk2: Wedgewood Blue. Bought November 2010. Almost seems civilised. Car has done a RBRR (Dave Picton 2010). Blimey, could be on the road soon!

I'm amazed myself, at how quicklt the car has been traced since I started looking (rather than thinking about looking) last weekend.

I'll get in touch with the Telegraph to see if their pictures department can come up with anything.  Wow - what a memory you have!

I've emailed Canley Classics - about another car.  One they have on ebay at the moment.  I think I've had a rush of adrenalin - I've got all Triumph crazy!

Triumph Crazy- It's a disease, you'll end up with at least two Triumphs sitting on your driveway!

What an excellent thread this is!!!! Can't believe i've only just seen it.

Methinks it needs to be written up for the Club Mag it's quite inspiring.

Ben - let us know what Dr Dave reckons about the car - he probably knows the car.

I'd be happy to write up everything I know as an article - could be quite therapetic.  I suppose I'd better download the membership form and complete.  Can I join even if I'm not a Triumph owner?  I haven't heard from JK that I can buy it - but I haven't heard that I can't...


Er... "Dr. Dave"?  You've lost me there
