This lovely Triumph Stag is one of the first Mark 2 cars built. The new model was introduced in February 1973 and this car was built 14th February that year. The car was supplied by a Dorset dealer to a gentleman for his 50th birthday who owned the car, accident free for the next 38 years, to 2011. The second owner, a doctor, kept the car from 2012 to 2016 during which time he spent over £12,000 on the car, proven by all receipts. The car has retained the original 3.0 litre V8 Triumph engine and overdrive gearbox , has two keys, heritage certificate and original handbook. The first owner, at the age of 88 wrote his own letter of history of the car under his ownership, and the car is also registered with the Stag Owners Club.
The engine was rebuilt in October 2014 at a cost of over £5000, and bills incurred during the upgrades in 2014 were £6146. Other sundry work listed in the last few years includes a new doorskin, a motalita wooden rim steering wheel, (the original comes with the car too) and a light tidying. The overall condition is very good including the interior which retains the original seats, with a minor repair having been carried out to the driver seat cushion. The soft top is in very good condition, as is the factory hardtop.
The Triumph V8 engine has covered less than 1000 miles since rebuild and runs very sweetly with a lovely exhaust note. The overdrive works perfectly on third and fourth gears and the car handles, holds the road and drives exactly as it should.
The car is pictured with minilite style wheels, but these will be changed to original Stag wheels prior to sale. The mileage record is confirmed genuine, and there are MOT records every year from 2011 to 2018. The car is now MOT and tax exempt, although the car still has the
