What looks to be the only surviving Triumph Herald 1200 display department built training chassis’ will once again be utilised by AoHE for its main intention – the education and future development of apprentices.
The rare training chassis’ will be restored by the Association Of heritage Engineers (AoHE) accompanied and in synergy with apprentices at the Heritage Skills Academy based on the Bicester Heritage technical site. It will be used in conjunction with ongoing apprentice educational schemes under the close professional guidance of AoHE.
Originally based and located at a Lincolnshire college the unit was by classic car legend John Simpson where he attended the college as an avid young student in the late sixties/ early seventies.

John Simpson said:
“This must be one of the most serviced Herald engines in the world and remembers fondly of driving it around the campus.”
AoHE will endeavour to continue a rolling restoration process whilst showcasing the unit throughout the annual classic calendar year.
Some of the original parts have been removed over the years including gauges and master cylinders and the indicator and light stalks, and unfortunately, the steering wheel is damaged.
Anyone or company wishing to provide information or to donate parts to the project please contact the AoHE
