Hi, this is my 1973 Mk2 Stag - it was actually built in late 1972 but registered in 1973 so guess this makes it an very early Mk2 Stag. Selling in time for the summer and then do some winter jobs to it ready for next year. Expecting the tax bill from hell and a kitchen project has just gone over budget so it is time to pass on to someone else.
Overall this is in good condition but there are some jobs that could be done to take this to the next level - please bear inmind that I have priced this to reflect the condition the car is in - looking elsewhere on ebay most of the cars are somewhere between 1.5 and 2 times the price I am asking so a good starting point if you want to get this car up to that sort of level.
I will start with the good bits:
Still the original engine - getting to the point where it needs a service - had a major re-build about 2k miles ago - copy of receipt in photos - also just put a new alternator on it and had the radiator repaired and pressure tested - pulls really well
Original Mk2 Alloy wheels - including a spare alloy wheel
Drives really well with no rattles or shakes - everything works as it should including kickdown
All electrics working fine
Solid body work with some minor imperfections
Rear seatbelts fitted
Radio/CD player and changer
Kenlowe fan installed which works when the switch is operated but never used in anger as there are no overheating issues
Extensive documented history - an A4 lever arch file full of receipts back to 1993, most of the MoTs - earliest being 1979 and the original service history and owners manual
And in the interests of being honest so you don't have a wasted journey, the not so good bits:
Front drivers seat could do with a re-trim - rear seats are fine
There is a small hole in the boot floor which could do with patching up - this is the only bodywork issue I am aware of - there has been some welding done underneath and the rest of the floors are solid
There are a couple of small holes in the hood which have been caused by a previous owner not being too careful when operating the hood catches - and the frame is broken at the front right hand corner - still works fine though
I have had the car about 2 years now, prior to my ownership is was stored long term in a heated garage as part of a collection, during my ownership it has only ever been out in the dry and is kept in a secure garage.
Overall a good useable car which gets plenty of positive comments whenever I go out in it which can be used as is or with some work taken to the next level.
Feel free to have a look - if you can't find them, please let me know
We are in Lytham St.Annes, please contact me either by phone or email if you would like to see the car
A final request please as there seem to be a few timewasters out there - we are in Lytham St.Annes in Lancashire - Google Maps will tell you how far away that is from where you live - and no, the Stag is not a suitable car for hill-climbs so please don't contact me one day to say you are very interested and then the next day to say you have got a better deal on a V8 engined TR7. And finally, the car is described here and in the videos very accurately - people who have come to view the car have said as such - and no, I won't be putting it through an MoT and accepting £7.5K for the car after you have come for a "joyride" and please, please check with your partner that you are able to buy the car before making an offer - if you are seriously interested in the car - more than happy for you to come and drive the car - it really does cruise well for a 46 year old car, but, it would probably be best if we can talk over the phone first rather than just messaging me so I can answer any further questions you have before travelling - sorry but it is starting to get a bit silly.
