Triumph Herald Database
Researching the fate of the 948.
The database needs your help in compiling a listing of all the Triumph
Heralds produced. A mammoth task, so we are firstly concentrating on early
Triumph Herald 948cc examples produced from 1959 to 1961. If you can help
us we'd love for you to get involved - get in touch with any memories,
information, photographs of 948 saloons, coupes and convertibles.
Since triumph-herald.com has started we have had a fantastic response from
owners from around the globe, ex employees (and their families) from
Standard Triumph and many NEW items of information added, to record the
Triumph Heralds introduction. We hope with your help the database will
continue to flourish and find out more information in the future.

The Triumph TR6 (1969--76) is a British six-cylinder sports car and the
best-seller of the TR range built by Triumph when production ended in July
1976. This record was then surpassed by the TR7. Of the 94,619 TR6s
produced, 86,249 were exported; only 8,370 were sold in the UK.
The bodywork closely resembled that of the previous model, the Triumph TR5,
but the front and back ends were squared off, reportedly based on a
consultancy contract involving Karmann. This is referred to as a Kamm-style
tail, which was very common during 1970s era of cars. The body shape was
similar to the TR4/TR5 except for the rear and front.
All TR6 sports cars featured inline six-cylinder engines. For the US market
the engine was carburetted, as had been the US-only TR250 engine. Like the
TR5, the TR6 was fuel-injected for other world markets including the United
Kingdom, hence the TR6PI (petrol-injection) designation. The Lucas
mechanical fuel injection system helped the home-market TR6 produce 150 bhp
(110 kW) (145 hp DIN) at model introduction. Later the non-US TR6 variant
was detuned to 125 bhp (93 kW) in order for it to be easier to
drive, while the US variant continued to be carburetted
with a mere (but more reliable) 104 hp (78 kW).
The TR6 featured a four-speed manual transmission. An optional overdrive
unit was a desirable feature because it gave drivers close gearing for
aggressive driving with an electrically switched overdrive which could
operate on 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears on early models and 3rd and 4th on later
models. Bot provided "long legs" for open motorways. TR6 also featured
semi-trailing arm independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering,
15-inch (380 mm) wheels and tires, pile carpet on floors and trunk/boot,
bucket seats, and a full complement of instrumentation. Braking was
accomplished by disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear. A
factory steel hardtop was optional. TR6 construction was fundamentally
old-fashioned: the body was bolted onto a frame instead of the two being
integrated into a unibody structure; the TR6 dashboard was wooden (plywood
The UK version TR6PI could accelerate from zero to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 8.2
seconds and had a top speed of 120 mph (190 km/h) according to Autocar
As of Q1 2011 there were approximately 2723 licensed and 1320 SORN TR6s
registered with the DVLA in the UK.[
