I WORKED on the Triumph Herald from 1959-71. The first ones were built at the Canley plant in April 1959, all components coming in red primer ready for assembly, until the following year when we moved to the Torrington Avenue plant where a new track and paint shop had been built. From then on, until the end of production of the Herald range, all components came in bare metal and after assembly were primed and then transported to Canley for colour spraying and final finish.
