1969 Triumph Herald 13/60 convertible MTP 220G

MTP 220G is a 1969 Triumph Herald 13/60 convertible that was spotted parked on the streets of Bristol.

The Herald 13/60 was the last generation of what was a tremendously popular and long-lived model for Triumph. Available in saloon, convertible and estate body styles, the Herald was even offered produced for a limited time as a panel van.

Many were taken by the sharp looks of the Herald, which was styled by none other than legendary Italian designer Giovanni Michelotti.

These later 13/60 cars had a redesigned front end that was similar to Triumph’s Vitesse albeit without the twin headlamps. The 1,300cc engine that powered the 13/60 Heralds produced a claimed 61hp and offered a serious performance improvement over the smaller displacement engines used previously.

MTP 220G is now 42 years old and she’s showing her age in places but the gleaming brightwork and recent soft top show this is a car that’s clearly well taken care of.
