Description TRIUMPH STAG - ORGINAL V8 AUTO - GENUINE 57,000 MILES

The paper work from the 3 previous owners suggests the indicated 57,000 miles is correct. The compression test (all around 100 PSI) and the conditions of the seats, pedals and steering wheel also support this.

• New Mohair Hood

• New Carpets

• New Tyres

The Bad Bits

The photos flatter the car. It looks nice from a few meters away but needs a complete re-spray. The paint work can best be described as scabby. The rear arches need some work. The body work has numerous small dents and bird lime damage. The replacement front wings are pattern parts and do not align perfectly. Rear boot edge is rusting. Rear corners of bonnet have been repaired, OK but not perfect. Hardtop is in a sorry state. Minor work to finish the hood fitting. Split in the vinyl around the gear knob console. Missing front parcel shelf. Heater, water control valve sticking. Needs new choke cable fitting. Water leak… probably a head gasket but still drives fine. Exhaust will need replacing for next MoT.

Summary

Basically it’s a really solid Stag that has had virtually every mechanical item replaced, except the head gasket issue. A complete re-spray (with quite a bit of prep) will be needed to make it pristine. However if you choose not to do this, it looks fine parked in the pub car park on a summer's evening.

Call Mark on 07500 042369 or 01476 860626 to arrange viewing. We are near Grantham Lincs. £100 non refundable deposit required with 24 hours of auction end. Collection and balance within a week. Please remember you are bidding to buy not look.
