This fantastic Manual example has been meticulously cared for by its three previous custodians since new and is offered in Royal Blue with matching hood and hard top complemented by biscuit leather trim. We would certainly say that this is amongst the best we have seen as an original car. Under the first owner, Mr. Barley of Woodford Green, the car was serviced annually by Lamb's of Woodford Green up to 1982 and 27,347 miles; all present and stamped in the Triumph service passport. It was then sold to Mr. Naidu who, it is believed, sent the car to his holiday home in Jersey which he visited very infrequently and only used the Stag to move around the island. Being a rather small island and used so sparingly, the little Triumph spent almost all of its time wrapped up in a garage thus accumulating only another 10,000 miles in the 25 years of ownership. The current owner purchased the car in 2007 and was astonished at the quality of a car some 30 years old and has since made every effort to continue with the upkeep again as documented in the history file.
Upgrades include a four branch Holly carburetor conversion, a larger fan, new exhaust and rear seatbelts and the vendor informs us that the running of the engine is fabulous. The paint and chrome work is in very good order and accompanying the sale is a history file including previous MoT's as well as a current one valid until May 2016, the original service booklet, Handbook and instruction manual alongside service bills and V5 registration document. If you are interested in reviving your youth, we would certainly urge you to give the Triumph Stag more than a passing glance.
