1977 Triumph Stag
Ideal use and improve example driven to the sale; removable hard-top; auto 'box owned since 2006
Driven to us by the vendor, this distinctive Stag has been with our man since 2006 although seen little recent use.
Dating from May 1977, the Stag was originally red in colour and looks to have been repainted in 2018 with the colour change recorded with DVLA in December of that year. The inside is black vinyl with wood trim, the odometer showing 75,179 miles. The engine looks to be the 3.0 Triumph V8 and is mated here to automatic transmission and comes with a removable hard top.
Although repainted, it does requires cosmetic attention with cracks, peel and surface corrosion to attend to, but looks to be a solid enough base from which to start.
The history file includes the V5C showing six former keepers, Stag owner’s handbook, 11 old MOTs dating back to 2003 at 69,721 miles and a selection of invoices for parts and works carried out, including welding to the OSR chassis and outer sills in 2010.
The car is MOT exempt and was last presented for test in July 2017 when it passed without advisory which bodes well.
Although the car starts and runs, we urge caution if you plan to drive it home, we noted what looked like a brake fluid leak from the offside rear wheel area. That aside, at the enticing estimate it gives the new owner plently of scope to get their hands dirty and spend some money which should reward later on.
