Engine fully rebuilt. Immaculate engine bayA really superb example of Triumph's innovative designThe market for Stags of this quality has been warming for some timeLike the Triumph 2000, from which it was developed, the Stag was styled by Italian maestro Giovanni Michelotti and featured the monocoque construction, independent suspension, disc/drum brakes, power-assisted rack and pinion steering and driveline of that saloon. The power plant, though, was an all-new OHC, V8 of 3,000cc capacity fed by a pair of Stromberg carburettors. The newcomer received a warm reception at the time of launch in 1970.Offered as part of The Anthony Hamilton Collection, this Triumph Stag is finished in LeylandWhite with a black vinyl interior and is, without doubt, one of the best examples available. Originally delivered to Leyland dealer, Newbury Motors Ltd on 21stApril 1977 and first registered on the 3rd of June fitted with a number offactory options includinga Hardtop, Alloy wheels, Sundym windscreen, Overdrive, Inertia-reel safety belts, and headrests.Having been enjoyed byfour previous owners, it was decided in 2015 that the car deserved a full restorationand the history file contains acomprehensive photographic record of the process.The engine was totally rebuilt at this time and a photo of the engine number confirms it matches the original registration documentation.The mileage is currently57,283whichis substantiated bya sales invoice from 1985 at circa 34,000 miles and older MOTs.The history file contains a pristine copy of the original sales brochure.This is a really stunning example, well restored,in a lovely colour combination and fitted with a manual/overdrive gearbox, the most desirable transmission option.
