The Stag was yet another groundbreaking British design Like many others in history that was executed poorly in construction.

Every car enthusiast knows the story with its pretty design. four seats. mixture of soft and hard tops and a V8 engine!

What an amazing proposition it was at launch and much better value than it's German counterpart the mighty SL.

The problems were soon apparent with poor build quality and several design flaws meaning that it soon earned a poor reputation for reliability like many British cars of this period.

Shame really because it deserved better and was such a super car to drive as it still is today.

Most of the issues have been ironed out over the past 20 years and Stags are now accepted as a good useable car when the recommended modifications are integrated into refreshes.

This is one of the last built and finished in rare Java Green with black trim.

There is a comprehensive history file including old mots. tax discs. invoices etc to support the low mileage.

A hard top is included and the Black hood is in good condition.

So overall this is a very safe purchase and currently very undervalued in the Classic car market.

On a hot sunny day with the top off the burble of the V8 really suits the style of the Stag as wafts along quite sportingly.

Models with the auto gearbox are best and she feels tight and reliable.

There are cheap alternatives out there but as always there is a reason why you pay more for the best!
