- Single ownership for over four decades

- Presented in excellent condition
The ‘Stag’ name was a development codename allocated when the design project was initiated by Giovanni Michelotti in 1965. None of the subsequent names suggested through the process were ever deemed more compelling, 55 years later, the Triumph Stag still occupies one of the cornerstones of the collector’s car market. The svelte Michelotti styling married to decadent V8 power makes this model both beautiful to look at and enormous fun to drive. Add to that a thriving club network, these cars make for hugely desirable ownership.
Registered on 1st July 1975, this wonderfully presented Triumph Stag has been in single ownership for over four decades and has more recently been the subject of a comprehensive restoration undertaken by Triumph specialists. Included in the work was an extensive bare metal respray of the body as well as a new interior and an extensive overhaul of the engine, a new hood was also fitted at this time. Many panels and dials were restored where necessary and the rear axle and gearbox were stripped, rebuilt, and re-fitted to the car. Other works included the fitment of four new wheels shod with new tyres, new brake lines and a new exhaust system leaving no stone unturned. The workmanship put into this painstaking restoration is clear to see, the paintwork is excellent and the interior and engine bay present in superb order. The history file that accompanies the car includes many invoices detailing the restoration, sundry invoices, photos of the Triumph during restoration and the UK V5 registration document. Offered with its private registration number, this must be one of the finest examples on the market today. A very rare opportunity to acquire a freshly restored Stag in the most desirable colour combination. Surely one of the best.
