1972 Triumph Stag
Local car from long term ownership; manual with overdrive; hard top; quality respray in recent years; lots of history
Delivered new in February 1972, this attractive manual Stag has spent most of its life in the Hereford area. It shows eight owners on the V5C, but the previous keeper owned it from 1989 until 1996 since when it has been with the current. There are 26 old MOTs on file, the earliest dated 1988 which lists its mileage at 9,500 miles - likely 109,500 miles - a figure which has gradually increased since to register the current figure of 32,500 miles.
There are a significant pile of bills which show dedicated maintenance, including a replacement gearbox and overdrive refresh in 2009 - just a few thousand miles ago. These include local Hereford garages as well as from SNG Barrett and Rimmer Brothers etc.
It was colour-changed from dark red to black about 20 years ago, a colour which suits it well and which extends to the boot and bonnet area as well as the colour-coded hard-top. Within the last two years, it has been professionally repainted again (not the hard top), the paintwork looking very smart indeed with a really deep lustre. The bodywork remains commendably rust-free and is well above average and the car looks very presentable and sits particularly nicely.
The engine started and ran well during our brief photo session on-site, with working gauges and smooth operation. The vendor advises us that there are eight even compressions and that electronic ignition has been fitted. An additional oil pressure gauge registers a healthy pressure. The radio is the original (with working electric aerial) and a stainless exhaust has been fitted with a large-bore tailpipe.
In 2013, new tyres were fitted to the period-correct alloy wheels and we have inspected the hood which is in good serviceable condition - with just a little discolouration of the rear zip down window and what appears to be a Renovo treatment to the canvas.
This good looking Stag hasn't done much for a couple of years so could do with a good service.
