Triumph Herald Estate – 5th Ave @ 102nd St, NYC

April 27th, 2010 by Stu

This Triumph Herald Estate (that’s Brit speak for wagon) is one cool little shooting brake. It reeks of European sophistication, as if designed for a well-to-do sportsman who needed more room for his hunting dogs and Winchester rifles. And if given the choice, I would opt for one of these sleek, two-door wagons over the coupe, saloon and convertible variants also offered throughout the Herald’s 12-year production run. Every major body panel – including the sills and roof – could be unbolted so that different body styles could be easily built on the same chassis. So, much like the VW Bus, Triumph offered these Michelotti-designed Heralds in a wide range of body styles. Check out the wicked little fins out back. Mini Countryman eat your heart out.

67 Triumph 1

While Evel Knievel did his most famous jumps using Harley-Davidson XR-750, we think this Triumph would have made a fitting stand in.

It looks like there’s some TR6 in there, definitely some T100 too, but the Cub dirt-bike characteristics seem to shine through most prominently.

Porsche 911 Targa 4 – Mercer Street, NYC

911-targaWe all love Targas for the non committal reverence they pay to open top motoring. The best of both worlds indeed, a handsome coupe when you need it and the wind rushing through your hair when you don’t.
