In early 2016 I found this 73 Stag on Ebay in the local area. At the price I took a punt and purchased unseen and was intending to use it for spares, however the bodywork was pretty much rust free so I decided to go with restoring it. No engine problems.. No engine, just a block in the boot.
Its over 5 years later and I am done. I stuck with the original Mallard Blue paint which I am very pleased with and did a few changes to the engine to help with its reliability including an electric water pump, electric fan, TR6 spoiler, header tank and
IWIS timing chains. So far I am 2000 miles in its been fine and is a blast to drive. It still needs a few small things to revisited this winter, but for now I'm enjoying driving it.
