Classic Car Auctions says:

A well-presented Triumph Stag reading a mere 51,654 miles... Finished in Magenta, this 1973 Triumph Stag MK 1 3.0 V8 Manual car registration number 'SOL741M' is described by the vendor as being in "good condition' having spent 15 years in dry storage. Although technically a Mark 1, there were a few cars built with major features of the Mark 2 and these have come to be known within the trade as the MK 1½. The car benefits from a reconditioned engine fitted last summer and, we are told, is still 'running in' with less than 1,000 miles since.

First registered in September 1973, this pleasant Stag is believed to have been restored in 1988 and there is a large number of bills and photographs in the car's history file which verify this. The car was then only driven for around 500 miles before being laid up until 2013 when the present owner purchased it from a well-known local specialist Stag dealer. Having owned the car for 3 years, the enthusiastic owner tells us that he has " fitted a reconditioned engine (51577 miles), a new fuel tank and a new brake master cylinder". This super Stag in a very distinctive hue, will have a fresh MoT before the Sale and is offered with 'No Reserve'.
