DESCRIPTION

A well presented Vitesse with overdrive...The Triumph Vitesse was introduced on 25th May 1962, resurrecting a name previously used by the Triumph Motor Company in the thirties, and was an in-line 6-cylinder performance version of the Triumph Herald small saloon. The Herald had been introduced on 22nd April 1959 and was an attractive two-door light car styled by the Italian designer Giovanni Michelotti. Within two years Triumph began to entertain thoughts about a small sporting saloon based on the Herald and, ideally, using stocks of their existing 6-cylinder engine. Michelotti was again approached for styling input, and he penned a delightfully balanced small car that utilised nearly all the body panels from the Herald, combined with a new front end with a slanted 4-headlamp design.

GGF 297C was born on the 13th of August 1965 and is powered by 1.6 litre, six-cylinder engine coupled to a manual gearbox with overdrive. Finished in 'Fire Engine' Red with a black soft-top, the car is described as being in good clean condition and driving well. We understand it was restored between ten and fifteen years ago and is described as being 'in good usable condition'. Supplied with a current MoT certificate valid until February 2017.

The Herald and the Vitesse are now back in fashion, particularly the convertibles and this pretty car ticks all the boxes.
