1975 Triumph Stag Auto-Top class restoration,exceptional example For Sale
This is an excellent, correct example that presents superbly as it would have when just a few years old. The Stag is finished in its original colour of White with Black upholstery, has its correct MKII alloy wheels and Black mohair hood. HGM 491N is a car previously sold by us and prior to first coming to us in 2016, had one owner from 1992. The car records a total mileage of 87250 and whilst we cannot warrant this, we have records dating back to 1989 when mileage was recorded at 60,000. This stunning, very smartly presented Stag appears correct, original in many respects, and we would suggest this to be a genuine low mileage example.
HGM 491N was restored by specialists in 1991 to a very high standard. So many years on since the rebuild, the Stag retains an impressive, deep paint finish and has lovely clean panels. The paintwork has a fresh looking finish, clearly carried out to a high standard well over 20 years ago. In more recent years the car has been treated to a new steering rack, new water pump, new timing chains and sprockets, new hood and re-conditioned frame, new Vredestein tyres, re-chromed bumpers, re-conditioned differential, new suspension bushes, shock absorbers, stainless steel exhaust with mild steel tailpipes, a new alternator and period radio cassette. The car has been regularly serviced, not used in the wet and waxoyled. Since then, with our workshop Malton Coachworks, the Triumph has been treated to all new flexi brake hoses, rear wheel cylinders, new front brake calipers, brake master cylinder, new oil pump assembly and oil transfer housing including all new gaskets and seals.
In recent years the Stag has been covering very low annual mileage. The car has been stored in a dry garage and has been kept sharp, clean and detailed. This is a very strong car that has had excellent maintenance and has been superbly kept up too since restoration. The Stag drives superbly with an excellent, strong V8 engine that performs perfectly. The engine is nicely set up, has even compressions and starts instantly, accelerates strongly and has a lovely sound complimented by the raspy exhaust note. The auto gearbox changes up and down smoothly, the power steering feels superb and handling and braking feel sharp and correct. This example drives exactly as a Stag should and will not disappoint. The car presents beautifully with its impressive paintwork, bodywork, clean underside, deep gleaming chrome and as new hood. The original seats have nicely aged, carpets, door cards and dash are excellent and the engine bay and boot are both very clean. This is an excellent value, strong, usable Stag that is exceptionally both drives and presents superbly. It has a highly original feel; it is totally correct and has clearly never been a neglected car. This is one of the nicest automatic Stag's we've had the pleasure of owning.
