This Triumph Stag has had just two owners in total, with the last having it for 34 years; it is now being sold as part of a bereavement sale. It was registered in October 1973 and its odometer shows 14,386 miles. As an historic vehicle, the Stag is now MoT-exempt.  

The car was upgraded to Ford Essex V6 power by Hart Racing during the 1980s, complete with stainless steel headers, presumably to support a mild racing/road cam and twin-choke Weber carburettor. It has recently been recommissioned after being dry-stored for over 25 years in the family's heated garage; the work included the cylinder heads being removed and refaced, all valves and seats re-cut, and new gaskets used when reassembled. The engine was flushed and filled with 20/50w oil, along with a new filter fitted. Also installed was a complete (Burton Power) new water pump assembly, along with an upgraded three-core radiator and hoses/clips. The fuel tank was removed and chemically-cleaned, and the fuel pump serviced and refitted, along with several new fuel pipes and fittings. There was also a fresh battery.

Although the car starts and drives, and everything seems to function as it should, according to the vendor. However, given how long it has been in storage, it is recommended that it is properly checked over before being used on the road.  

There is no V5C with the vehicle, but it does it does come with some older MoT certificates, recent bills from its recommissioning and some older bills from the 1980s.
