Yes. 12/50 grille, looks like suffix plate so 63+.

Thanks. These cars looked so charming. Maybe the Rootes-brothers should have hired Michelotti as well...

They may have looked nice, but they could bite you if you found some corners to play on. In extremis, and I've been there a couple of times, the swing axle rear suspension could put you in a very difficult position. To save you asking, I had a 1961 Herald 1200 Coupé. The only other Triumph I had heavy involvement with was my Dad's 1964 2000, which came between a Farina Cambridge and an Austin 1800 Mk1.

Mum had a Dolomite, but that never needed the spanners on it.

Thanks a lot for that interesting bit of information although I was actually just referring to the sheer debonair elegance most Michelotti-designs had; I did not want to say anything about the stuff Triumph's technicians put unterneath the beautiful veneer.

It's even the same colours. Yes, I know it looks a bit of a hairdresser's car, but I won the local motor club's grass hill climb trophy with it one year.

If you want one of this range of cars, get the Vitesse 2-litre, no swing axles.
