This is an excellent, correct example that presents superbly as it would have when just a few years old. The Stag is finished in its original colour of White with Black upholstery, has its correct MKII alloy wheels and Black mohair hood. HGM 491N has been with its most recent owner since 1992 and over this time has covered around 16,000 miles. The car records a total mileage of 86800 and whilst we cannot warrant this, we have records dating back to 1989 when mileage was recorded at 60,000 and the Stag appears correct, original in many respects and as a result of this we would expect this to be correct.
HGM 491N was restored by specialists in 1991 to a very high standard. So many years on since the rebuild, the Stag retains an impressive, deep paint finish and has lovely clean panels. The paintwork has a fresh looking finish, clearly carried out to a high standard well over 20 years ago. In more recent years the car has been treated to a new steering rack, new water pump, new timing chains and sprockets, new hood and re-conditioned frame, new Vredestein tyres, re-chromed bumpers, re-conditioned differential, new suspension bushes, shock absorbers, stainless steel exhaust with mild steel tailpipes, a new alternator and period radio cassette. The car has been regularly serviced, not used in the wet and waxoyled.
In recent years the Stag has been covering very low annual mileage, only being used for the odd local show. The car has been stored in a dry garage and has been kept sharp, clean and detailed. This is a very strong car that has had excellent maintenance and has been superbly kept up too since restoration. The Stag drives superbly with an excellent, strong V8 engine that performs perfectly. The engine is nicely set up, has even compressions and starts instantly, accelerates strongly and has a lovely noise complimented by the raspy exhaust note. The auto gearbox changes up and down smoothly, the power steering feels superb and handling and braking feel sharp and correct. This example drives exactly as a Stag should and will not disappoint. The car presents beautifully with its impressive paintwork, bodywork, clean underside, deep gleaming chrome and as new hood. The original seats have nicely aged, carpets, door cards and dash are excellent and the engine bay and boot are both very clean. This is an excellent value, strong, usable Stag that is exceptionally both drives and presents superbly. It has a highly original feel; it is totally correct and has clearly never been a neglected car. This is one of the nicest automatic Stag's we've seen in a long time.
