Early Mark I Triumph Stag for sale. I’ve owned this car for 5 years and have had quite a few things done to turn it into a very useable car. It’s very complete and original but I don’t pretend its concourse – just an honest and good car. I’m now selling it as I’m just not using it and have other cars taking up my time. Its build number is LD364 making it an early Mark I. Heritage certificate gives a build date of 13/10/70 and it was first registered 17/1/71. I’ve got lots of history from the DVLA and history of work done to it since 1995. MOT and Road Tax Exempt. From the history with I know it was sold as a project by Rimmers in 1995. Not a lot of history then until 2009 and I was told that it had been sat in a barn pending engine reconditioning, wings and a respray. This was done by Great Coates Motors in Grimsby. When I bought it, I found that it had a faulty water pump (wrong number of vanes for the housing). I decided to make the cooling bullet proof and had ProSpeed Motorsport install a Davis Craig electric water pump and uprated Super Gill radiator. I’ve never had problems. They also fitted inertia seat belts and rear lap belts. More recently I had the gearbox and differential rebuilt by Yorkshire Triumph. It’s also had a new and uprated alternator and last year a new clutch. I’ve got mileage history, from MOT’s, going back to 1975 up to 1996 and since 2009. The car has some imperfections. The front chrome is very good but the rear chrome has some pitting. The paintwork is good from its respray presumably from 2009 in original pimento red. Good tyres on later Mark II rims. The hood is good for a Stag – they are awkward to put up – ok once you get used to them. The plastic rear screen has no cracks – I always unzip it when packing away. It comes with a very good hardtop. The console isn’t brilliant and has some black tape on it. The veneer has some cracks. The vinyl seat covers are very good with just a little wear showing on the driver’s side. But the foam is the usual load of soggy nothing particularly in the bolsters – it could do with that sorting but isn’t uncomfortable. It’s just come out of the garage from its winter hibernation and the fuel sender looks like it’s stuck – I think that’ll clear when its used. I can only put a few pictures in this add but I’ve got loads of others available upon request. It’s best viewed to see condition – but only genuine buyers please. I haven’t the time for anyone who simply wants to kick tyres.
