Three 'as new' Triumphs for auction next weekend

Published 20 September 2013

Three super-low mileage Triumphs with less than 100 miles on the clock are up for auction on 28 September at East Anglian Motor Auctions. The trio, which are made up of a 1961 Herald with 20 miles on the clock, a 1977 Dolomite 1500HL with 69 miles, and a 1979 Dolomite 1500SE that’s done 80 miles, represent an unprecedented opportunity to pick up an as new classic Triumph.

The star of the sale is undoubtedly the 1961 Herald. It was delivered to its new lady owner was never used once. It was eventually bought back by the dealer, and was taxed for the last time a year later. The car, which has been in storage ever since. 

The big question for their new owners would undoubtedly be to use or to preserve?

The Herald 1200 has some patina from storage, but is effectively a new and unused car. The RF60 logbook shows only one taxation stamp and the details of its first lady owner. The V5C states one owner being the owner of the garage, which has owned since. It is a timewarp item, that has been in heated storage and looked after, covered in sheets. It comes without tax or MoT, and will need full recommissioning, as will all three. The estimate for the Herald is £12,000-15,000.

The two Dolomites are also also a significant opportunity to bag yourself a practical classic car, which you’re effectively going to the first driver of. The big question for their new owners would undoubtedly be to use or to preserve?

Viewing opens at 9.30am on 28 September – more information at
