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.
