Triumph Spitfire was originally designed to be small sports model cars meant for the market by Standard-Triumph following the introduction of Austin-Healey Sprite. The idea was to use the Herald’s mechanicals for the Austin’s light body makeup and come up with a budget sports car. The one advantage heralds had over the Austin is that it was made of separate chassis whereas the former was of unitary construction. Triumph wanted to save costs by cutting the chassis and draping it with a sports body so that it can avoid developing a new body. Michelotti who designed the Herald was summoned over for a new project and it resulted in a swooping body in a traditional mode. The car was offered with windup windows and tilted forward front end in a single piece for easy engine access. The project, however did not convert into production due to financial trouble in 1960 and only the takeover by Leyland brought the car from oblivion.
