A 1970 Triumph Herald 13/60 that featured in the much-loved Yorkshire television production Last of the Summer Wine is to be sold in Tennants Auctioneers’ Motor Car, Motorcycle and Automobilia Sale on 5th June with an estimate of £10,000-15,000 plus buyer’s premium.
The red Triumph Herald convertible was one of three similar models used in the long-running show, which was on screens from 1973-2010. Such was the prominence of the car in the show that Corgi made a miniature Triumph Herald which was sold in a specially themed pack along with a model of the car’s owner Edie Pegden, who played by Thora Hird.
The car has been fully restored, and will feature alongside a host of classic, vintage and luxury cars up for auction in Tennants’ Leyburn salerooms. The vehicles will be available for public viewing on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th June.
