Hello all

My 1971 herald 13/60 with steel wheels and hub caps questions

A) were the hub caps plain as standard

B) were they standard with the triumph globe badge in the middle

C) what would you advise keep the hubcaps plain with no badge or purchase four globes for the centre of my hub caps, I am trying to keep the car as original as possible

Regards Andrew

Yes you are right on the outer trims they were standard but I have also been in formed by a old guy I know that the  rims were standard with holes in but an option extra with the long slits in does anybody confirm my information

Slots were early Vitesse & GT6 MK1 & 2, but as Mk1/2/3 Spits came with no rims, slots were offered as an optional extra - a popular upgrade, as was upgrading to "globe" hubcaps.

 

I had a 1971 Herald 13/60 with round-holed rims and plain hubcaps, which was the correct combination as it left the factory.

 

There is a very good supplier on Ebay who has reproduction hubcaps with the correct dimensions. I bought my hubcaps from him - they were NOS Stanpart items, still in the box, he used them as a template for his repros. You can see them on my Avatar/Profile etc. Can't remember his Ebay ID, sorry.
