Good day , Just joined the forum having found a Triumph Sports Six Club calling card in the glove box of the 13/60 convertible I’m currently trying to restore. Already found a useful picture of fuel pipe routing! Hopefully I have attached pictures of car I have which was left in a paddock since 1995.BEC0863D-66A7-4FC5-9C3A-E2FD2BBF9E8C.jpeg.5ce3de7e16a3f49e8df8abefb88e3224.jpeg

Hello! That looks some project, but from the photos the wings and wheelarches look OK in the places that’d be more difficult to repair. Keep us posted with how you’re getting on!

Welcome along. Looks like you have found something to keep you busy for at least the next year . Its amazing how they keep turning up. They must be waiting for the right owner. Good luck with your restoration. Look forward to your progress in pictures. There are plenty of herald enthusiasts who can help here and the rest of us with encouraging words.

Hi.

Looks like some project?. The big issue is How the chassis is. Mine turned out to have more chassis issues. Hence the full body off "restoration" (ongoing).

Looking at the pic`s. This was`nt at a Farm in the Stamford area was it?. I looked at one similar, back in 2015, The seller wanting far more then than I would put up.

Onward and upward👍

I found her near Hassocks just north of Brighton at the beginning of the first lockdowns.In the time since I have removed all the body,stripped down the engine replaced both front out riggers and one rear out rigger and one side rail as they were like Lace! I have both front floor pans and gearbox tunnel next to do, and the Aposts on the base of the bulkhead are the next challenge.Currently I’m fitting fuel pipes and brake pipes back onto the chassis.

That looks like my Vitesse 1600/6 when I found it in a barn up on a Totnes Mountain in 1997!!  If you go onto the "Canley Classics" website you can click on the 13/60 website and it will have all the Diagrams and Part Number for your vehicle!  And they are a good bunch on the TSSC site even a bit "Out There"!!  Some of the Jokes!!
