Hello there could some one tell me why some surrounds are longer then others. Are they for different models??

And is anyone selling some of the smaller ones

Many thanks

I've half an idea that the longer peaks were from early Heralds, and the shorter are later, or maybe the other way round?

Yes, longer earlier and shorter later. The change may have been around 1964-1965; it's hard to tell for certain. I can look in my various Lucas catalogues, but that's no guarantee of absolute accuracy, either (I've found errors in those catalogues before -- shocking, I know)!

There is a chap in New Zealand selling new old stock short ones at the moment for a good price- $300 NZD / £168-  His name is Steve Douglas and he's contactable on the Triumph Herald International page on Facebook- I could probably come up with an email address if you dont do FB-
Reckons he's got about 10 sets according to the ad

Ive never bought repro ones but Id be wary of the chrome on anything modern- it all seems crap


1960 Herald Coupe Replica - mazda, datsun, and all over the garage floor
1964 Herald 1200 coupe - standard.

There's a guy who's having them reproduced out of brass I think too. Not 100% sure on the quality of them, but I assume like Lloyd with his panels, he's going for the best quality possible.

Any more details on this? Brass seems to me a much better idea than "monkey metal" - as a neighbour of mine with an engineering background calls it

I believe those are the ones of which the Cambridge TSSC AO has recently purchased a pair for his 1200-bonnetted Vitesse (or is that Vitesse-engined 1200?)
They do appear to be good quality.

Not enough time or space
Recently sold:

1973 Toledo 2-door "Spike" (gone to a club official)

1980 Dolomite 1500

It was Bob Rowland who was getting them made. At least it was him selling those anyway. Can be looked up by name on Facebook.

I remember being wrong once before Laurence Cochrane Newtownards Northern Ireland. 1972 Gt6 2600EFI The Mutt. Some original parts fitted, Not many ! Early PI motor overbored to 2.6. Lightened & balanced, ported chambered, cam'd 6-3-1 manifold. Running on DTA engine management system incorperating the PI throttle bodies fitted with electronic injectors and throttle position sensor. 0-60 4.7s & 7000rpm. Seriously annoys owners of modern stuff ! (particularly coz its a heap) 2500 S box with competition 28% od. 3.63 diff with a quaife in it, innit ! Rotoflex based rear but with a swing spring fitted & sliding shafts.(swing spring rotoflex without rotoflex's). Koni's front Spax rear. Hydraulic handbrake. Citroen xantia discs 11,1/4 in dia under Morris Garages 15 in Maestro alloys.

He still hasn't come through for me.  I sent him three hundred quid back in June, and as soon as he got the money he went quiet.  I found a phone number somewhere and left him a voicemail, then he got back to me saying he'd been unwell and he'd get it done soon.  Silence.  That was a month ago.

Total silence with me too, I bought two, they took over a year to arrive, then one was damaged. No answer to my e-mail queries. I tried to support it as it was a worthy venture, but I've been poorly repaid.


If it was made by man, it can be dismantled and rebuilt by man. Usually just not as easily.
