A credit to the team at Tudor Classics of Manchester with whom more than £26,000 was invested in 1991 to make this Stag the very best available and fewer than 11,000 miles travelled since mean it's still in exceptional order throughout. The bodywork is very good, beautifully straight and particularly well-painted in a timeless metallic blue with a light fleck in the paint.  The interior is well trimmed in black vinyl leather, and the wood, hard-top, door cards and carpets are all in good order as well.  Mechanically, the V8 engine was meticulously rebuilt at the point of restoration, and benefits from the recent replacement (May 2018) of the head gaskets and a new alternator (August 2018).  The manual overdrive gearbox is also an enormous positive, in our opinion, since we believe this enhances the driving experience considerably.

The restoration was comprehensive to the very last nut and bolt and is fully detailed with receipts from Tudor Classics, however, even before this restoration it is clear from the copious documentation from pre-1991 that this was a well maintained and cared for car. This car really does need to be seen to be appreciated.  Now offered with a nearly new canvas hood, hard top, and a large collection of invoices, receipts and old MoTs.  The current MoT runs to February 2019.  A really lovely Stag.
