Not quite a perfect example, but this 1970s Triumph Stag has originality on its side.

The car dates from 1977 and has 'a genuine 87,370 warranted miles' on the clock. The car is painted in the original shiny russet brown, the body panels are in very good condition, it is 'sound underneath' and clear of 'all the usual Stag rot spots'. There are a few marks and stone chips – see the description for full details – but as you would expect for a car of this age.


Inside, you get the original tan vinyl and contrasting brown carpets, the wood veneer is in 'very good and original condition' and the hood frame is in 'excellent functional order'. It even has the original stereo. As for the engine, it is the original Triumph 3.0 V8 with a 4 speed with overdrive gearbox, although it was fully rebuilt 8000 miles ago, that  gearbox fully rebuilt just 12,000 miles ago. 

It is sold with 12 months MOT (June 2013) and three months tax, along eight all the recent and historical paper work and invoices for work on the car. Right now, it is up for £1,650. Many more photos on the listing.
