1972 Triumph Stag Mk1 Automatic (Classed as an historic vehicle so Tax and MOT exempt)
I bought this Stag from a collector in Cornwall in 2008. He bought it from a car museum that had gone into liquidation. It has covered less than 30,000 miles on the original V8 engine and although there's no way to prove it the paperwork and condition of the engine tends to support this claim.
The original colour was brown but it looked awful so I had it resprayed cherry black metallic. It actually sparkles in the sunlight. Although not original the colour compliments the car and has attracted many positive comments. (See photos) The interior is tan.
Four/five years ago the stud broke on the power steering pump and welded itself into the head. The only option was to replace the head. With the engine and gearbox removed I took the opportunity to respray the tired looking engine bay. The engine was sent to Robsport International, a Stag specialist in Royston. They fitted new timing chains, water pump, high tork starter motor and a few other bits and pieces. It also has new engine and gearbox mounts, electronic ignition, a Kenlow Fan, re-furbished brake calipers, chromed rocker covers and water pipes, new soft top, new fuel pump, minilites, MK1 headrests, new springs and shocks all round … the list is endless and I have a big file of receipts to go with the car. I've spent more on this car than I do on wife !!!
Unfortunately, shortly after refitting the engine and box I shattered two discs in my lower back. Two years and several operations later and I have to face the fact that I will never be able to complete the car and even if I did it is too low for me to sit in for any length of time
The car is well looked after and lives in my garage under a soft cover. The engine is turned over every few weeks and moves freely. I can't see any evidence of rust anywhere but have not been able to check underneath. Everything is there to complete the build. It requires the following reassembly:
Carbs, coil, water pipes, oil filter, fuel lines, distributor, alternator, power steering pump, oil lines, exhaust system, auto gearbox selector, radiator and fan. I will also provide new Triumph decals, workshop manual, window guides, a boot rack and period picnic hamper.
When in use it had a guaranteed insurance value of £10,000. and as you can see from the photos it looked stunning. They are still going up in value so once complete it will be worth considerably more. I am asking a realistic price of £5500.
I live in Woodley, Nr Reading, Berks, and you are more than welcome to come and inspect the car before committing to buy.
