The Triumph Herald was a small two-door car introduced in 1959 by the Standard-Triumph Company of Coventry. Body design was by the Italian stylist Giovanni Michelotti, and the car was offered in saloon, convertible, coupe, van and estate variants.

While its handling has been described as "tank like", as an affordable, sporty soft top it holds a soft spot in many peoples' hearts. Its appearance as the car of choice for ladies of a certain age in the TV series Last of the Summer Wine only adds to its cult status.


Enid had a Triumph Herald soft top. It was red like the one in Last of the Summer Wine.
