The History and Paperwork
First registered in May 1977
Little is known about this car's life on the road before the previous owner
They had acquired the car to restore but life got in the way
Storing it safely in a barn undercover they forgot about the Stag
The current owner heard about the car and decided to purchase it in 2019
This Stag then went through a recommissioning at the hands of a classic car specialist
The engine got some new parts including new pipes
Some paperwork in the car on the day shows small expenses from the late 1990s
There was also an MOT certificate from 2002 found
Along with this, a Triumph Stag plastic sleeve was also present
The current owner has an up-to-date V5 present along with an MOT certificate from 2019
Now it’s your turn to add to the car’s history
Inside this Stag is present very well
Its tan interior complements the deep red exterior well
The front seats show little signs of use with only a few minor age-related marks
This condition is also matched by the rear bench seat
All of these seats look like they’ll be nice and comfortable on a journey out
On the floor is a lovely set of tan carpets
This tan trim doesn’t stop here, the hard-top headliner is also a light tan colour
The headliner is in good condition with only a small nick that can be seen in the photos
With this hard top removed, we can flood the cabin with natural light
The T bar/rollover hoop is wrapped in a hardwearing black vinyl
There is a soft-top section of the roof hidden under the rear deck
This wasn’t put up during the photo shoot, but the Vendor has mentioned its in good condition
Returning to the front of the car we can inspect the dashboard and centre console area
The black dashboard is void of any large or small cracks
This can also be said for the cars veneer dash
It still has a deep sheen and doesn’t seem to have any large areas of delamination
Set into the dash are several Smiths dials that all look fittingly classic
A Blaupunkt radio has been fitted but the owner has said that it isn’t the best radio
Just take the roof off and listen to the V8 instead
In the boot, there are a few spare parts along with a jack, and full-size spare wheel
Overall, the interior of this Stag is in good condition when you consider the age of the car
Designed by Michelotti the Stag looks beautiful from the outside
This example, finished in a striking red, looks amazing from every angle
Photographed with the hard top on and off your get to appreciate all its lines
We didn’t see the soft-top on the day but the current owner says its in good condition
Although in generally good condition there are some areas of the paint that show their age
There is some slight bubbling around one of the front wings
A smaller area can also be found around the driver's door shut
But the rest of the exterior bodywork appears to be nice and bubble-free
The chrome bumpers front and rear both look to be in good condition
Other chrome accents on the exterior are also in lovely condition
There weren’t any obvious areas of corrosion spotted on these during the photoshoot
On each corner, you’ll find a well-presented alloy wheel
These are shod in a matching set of tyres
Overall, the exterior of this Stag is in good condition when you consider its age
Under the bonnet, you’ll find a 3.0 L V8 that sounds amazing
It then sends its power to the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual gearbox
This gearbox also has an overdrive feature for motorway driving
The current owner has had the engine overhauled
On the day of the photos, the car started up without any issues
It was then slowly driven to the location
No lengthy drives were undertaken on the public roads so we cannot comment on how it performs out there
The current owner reports that it does run well, with no known mechanical issues/faults
They have driven this car to the Silverstone Classic with the Triumph Stag owners club
Overall, this Stag appears to be in good mechanical condition and raring to get out and explore
Thanks to the mechanical work carried out by the current owner this Stag should be ready to go from day one of your ownership. So, if you’re after a great-sounding and beautiful looking classic car then look no further than this lovely example.

About Max Bids
The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.
Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.
If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.
£0 to £9,999
£10,000 to £49,999
£50,000 to £99,999
Automatically outbid immediately
When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.
Matching max bids
When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
What are pre-bids?
A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.
Problem with your bid
Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
