1971 Triumph Stag 3.0 V8 Manual Overdrive

Sort after early MK1 Stag with manual gearbox and overdrive. Full restoration done by Stag Owner’s Club committee member in the 90s with stacks of receipts including new body shell inc. inner/outer wings, sills, floor, paint., new hood and frame. The car was exported by him to Singapore and we believe not returned to the UK until around 10 years ago.

In 2013, a new interior trim kit and carpets were fitted.

In 2019, the car underwent further restoration including fitting a newly rebuilt engine and new clutch. (Plenty of photos and a video of the engine being built is supplied.) The cooling system was upgraded with a larger aluminium radiator and new rubber hoses. A new fuel system was installed with new fuel pump, lines and tank, as was a new brake system with discs, upgraded stainless steel backing plates, callipers, brake booster, and lines. A period radio cassette was sourced and a new electric aerial fitted. Front and rear bumpers were upgraded to stainless steel.

We took the car in part exchange as the owner had to cease his restoration due to illness.

Our goal is to finish the restoration and to turn the car back to it’s original MK1 looks. We will be removing the MK2 alloys and replacing them with MK1 steel wheels with NOS polished hubcaps. We will replace the MK2 hood with a MK1 hood with rear quarter lights. We will remove the silver side stripes and change the black Stag badges for grey ones when they become available.

We have spent the last few months dismantling everything underneath the car – front and rear suspension, exhausts, and brakes, and shot blasted and resprayed them as required with black and silver epoxy paint, reassembled the suspension with new poly bushes, replaced the rear struts and front top mounts. New exhaust hanging brackets, suspension stabilising brackets, and many nuts and bolts.

Our auto electrician has gone through the electrics. We currently have a new set of blue carpets and a MK1 hood on order.

We have sourced an excellent set of steel wheels, blasted them and resprayed them into silver epoxy, fitted them with new Radar classic tyres, and a set of MK1 NOS hubcaps.

The car is virtually had a nut and bolt restoration and is in near concourse condition but with some upgrades like the larger ally radiator, poly bushed suspension, stainless exhaust. The Stag is celebrating its 50th anniversary and this early 1971 car was one of first and rarer MK1s to come off the production line. It could make a great 50th birthday present for someone.

Selling for £29,995.

Brake drums, coil springs, etc. blasted, painted with epoxy. New rear struts. New orange poly bush kit.

New brake lines, unions. Subframe and wishbones blasted and painted with epoxy. Differential repainted and new bolts.

It featured special velour seats, beauty rings, rear wiper, Hella fog lights front and rear, GTS graphics, electric windows, webasto roof, side protection rubbers. It is the last of the Alfettas with chrome bumpers before the horrid plastic bumpers and trim were added to most cars in the 1980s.

Auto Collezione is the classic car division of Monmouth Used Cars. We are a small, independent used car dealer in the village of Rockfield, two miles outside of Monmouth.

We do a lot of in-house restoration although specialist jobs such as resprays and interior re-trims are outsourced to our network of professionals.

You are more than welcome to make an appointment and view and test drive our cars. But many of our sales are sold unseen based on our honest descriptions, photos, and videos.

We have sold direct to other car dealers, for example, Veloces of London (Alfa Giulietta), 28 State Autos of Burscough (Pontiac Firebird), Lightning Quarter Garage in Sussex (Alfetta GTS), Classic Car Shop – Deutschland (Nissan Figaro).

Of course our cars are available to the public and we have sold and delivered them all over the country including Penzance (Ford F150), Dorset (Nissan S-Cargo), Scotland (Nissan Figaro), Ireland (Alfa GT), and London (1979 Mercedes SL350).

Our cars are fully prepared before sale and usually come with a full service and fresh MOT even if they are exempt, for your peace of mind. All cars are HPI checked and are all-clear.

Unlike most classic car dealers, we offer comprehensive, 6 month warranties on all our cars for your peace of mind. There is no excess to pay on any claim and you can make an unlimited number of claims during the specified period.

We offer a nationwide delivery service from £1 per mile and try and deliver cars personally if possible. Otherwise we can arrange transport through fully insured parties. We are so confident in our honest descriptions that we ask only that you pay us a small deposit to cover our travel costs. We have references from customers who have bought cars from us unseen.

Part exchange is more than welcome. We offer top part exchange prices, usually higher than the C.A.P. industry standard, WeBuyAnyCar, etc.. Cash adjustment up-or-down is possible as are straight swaps. Just let us know what you have – we will always do our best to do a deal!
