1973 Triumph Stag Mark II1973 / 2015 Triumph Stag Restomod Coupe with removable hardtop and convertible soft top.
I restored, modified, and improved this car over a 7 year period in order to have a reliable British car with modern American mechanical systems. Goal was to have a drivable car for our muggy Florida weather that my 88 year old Dad could enjoy. Car was completed in June 2015 and we were able to take our cars to the Fathers Day show and enjoy them. Life and age gets in the way sometimes, and my Dad has lost interest in enjoying the cars without my Mom. I am reluctantly selling my car in hope that it finds and owner who can appreciate it. Car meets criteria to be shown in Modified Prepared class at Vintage Triumph Register (VTR) events.
