Triumph Stag 1978 for sale
Triumph Stag 1978 ‘S' Mk2 manual overdrive. in Carmine red with black hood. matching Carmine hard top. and black interior.
Extensive restoration about 8 years ago using new old stock parts. Bought by us from E J Ward about 6 years ago as the very best on the market at the time. and enjoyed every year since. Now for sale due to an E-type.
Whilst retaining a standard appearance both externally and internally. along with the standard engine and gearbox. this car benefits from a number of subtle modifications. including a microwave alarm. full remote central locking including the boot (normally a weak spot). 4 x dipped and main Cibie headlights. lowered suspension with Spax dampers and polyurethane bushes. Kenlowe fan. tubular exhaust manifolds and stainless exhaust. electronic ignition. oil pressure gauge. interior light delay and extra storage illumination. third brake light (above the reg plate). burr oak veneer dash with Kenwood radio/CD/USB/Bluetooth & electric aerial. and of course a matching Boscreen wind deflector.
The restoration involved the engine. transmission. body. interior trim. and hood frame and cover. Since we've owned it. we've fitted new Uniroyals. a new diff (the previous one whined). master cylinders. servo. alternator and radiator & hoses. and a new modified clutch which now suffers none of the usual judder issues. The engine bay items were replaced under insurance when it suffered a small under-bonnet fire in 2010. after the clutch was replaced. It's been serviced every year. and has always had Millers Oils Classic Sport 20w50 since we've owned it. The restoration work has been done to an extremely high standard. and the paintwork is some of the best I've seen on a Stag. The hood and frame work well and it's an easy job to raise or lower the hood. The underside is clean and sealed. with no rot whatsoever. and copper brake pipes throughout.
The car drives extremely well. with a lot of torque. The suspension modifications make it precise and fun. but it still has a very comfortable ride. It's a shame to sell it. and we offer it for sale with heavy hearts. It's been shared between myself and my Dad. and my husband has another one all to himself too.
Please note the steering wheel and radio shown in the pictures will be replaced with the Kenwood and the standard wheel before sale.
It will be sold with 12 months MOT and six months tax. If you are interested to know more. please ring me on 01484 847120. I can send any number of photos. and of course we are available if you wish to come and view.
