eBay watch: 1966 Triumph Herald 1200 Convertible


It's always a risk buying a classic car, especially if you're not too great under the bonnet. But this Triumph Herald 1200 Convertible looks a cool and practical buy if you are a novice.

Dating back to 1966 and still cutting a hip profile, this Herald has just over 80,000 on the clock of that 1,147c engine. It's also described as being in 'excellent condition', as well as 'trouble free' and in 'great working order'. That's perhaps down to the amount of money spent on it – overt £2,000 in the last year alone. See the website for a breakdown of just what has been replaced and upgraded.

Another shot over the page, with many more on the listing. The price right now is £2,200 with no reserve.

eBay watch: 1972 Triumph GT6 sports car


A real gem from Triumph's past, with this Triumph GT6 sports car available on eBay right now.

It's a fine example too. Dating from 1972, it's really been looked after, tax and MOT in place and with plenty of servicing and upgrades over the years, right down to fresh oil and some anti-freeze recently added. See the selling page for a full breakdown.

There's 94,000 on the clock, interior is described as 'good'  and it's a real head-turner, that's for sure. Only thing worth mentioning on the downside is that the care has been off the road for over 15 years, but is 'ready to use' now, according to the seller. If you want it, you'll need to beat the current top bid of £2,350.
