Hi All Thought I would start a thread to document the build of my 948 convertible . It's my first Triumph. If any kind and I will definitely need some advice and help as I go along. So thought this would be the perfect place. A quick recap on the purchase - I found the car over two years ago - one owner for over 40yeara - ex race car driver here in Sri Lanka and the car was raced for many years in the 70s and 80s. During that time the cars body had been modified quite a bit and at some point a make shift roof was fitted along the way I have attached a few pictures of how I found the car. Long story short I checked the registration and the numbers seem to match - a quick email to the heritage trust in the U.K. Confirmed that it was a original 948 convertible. Extremely chuffed about that I picked it up immediately. Car has been in storage for the past year as I was traveling for work but we have started work for the past new months.
Hi All Greetings from Sri Lanka! I recently picked up a bit of a rough restoration project a 1960 Herald 948 Convertible. The car is currently is storage and i hope to start the restoration of it soon. This is my first triumph of any sort and looking for some advice and guidance with the restoration project - as an convertible herald is quite a rare thing in Sri Lanka - and i want to do the restoration justice. The car has had a rough life - with it being raced around a few hill climbs in the 70's and 80's and being subject to a few body modifications along the way - including a home made hard top. Will upload pictures soon. Hope to pick you brains on the bits and bobs as we go along. best, Shane
Hi Just joined TSSC and was hoping for some advice please. My herald 1200 1963 convertible driver door is out of alignment in that the top part is further away than the bottom. The car has a bit of tub spread that I have improved and this is the worst alignment issue I cannot resolve. The door needs to slammed shut hard and can be difficult to open as I guess it is catching on the striker plate. I've had the car 3 years and have regularly driven it but want to improve it now and get involved in the TSSC community. Thanks to anyone who can give me advice. Andrew
