Introduced in June 1970, the Triumph Stag was conceived as a luxury convertible sports car to rival the likes of the R107-series Mercedes-Benz SL. As such, it came equipped with electric windows, power-assisted rack and pinion steering, and servo-backed disc/drum brakes as standard. Based around a two-door monocoque bodyshell (stylist Giovanni Michelotti had physically shortened a pre-production Triumph 2000 saloon to fashion the initial prototype), the newcomer featured all-around independent suspension (McPherson strut front / semi-trailing arm rear) and a well laid-out 2+2 cabin. Neatly integrated, the substantial roll-over hoop that joined the B-pillars gained extra strength from a T-bar link to the windscreen frame.
With some 145bhp and 167lbft of torque on tap from its bespoke 2997cc SOHC V8 engine, the model was reputedly capable of 120mph. Available with a choice of four-speed manual or three-speed automatic transmission all but the earliest Stags benefited from both hard- and soft-top roofs. Despite being in production for seven years during which time 25,877 cars were made, a mere 9,500 or so are thought to have survived.
Presented in Red with contrasting black interior, PJB 610R benefits from a desirable manual gearbox with overdrive on 3rd and 4th and is offered having been stored for 3 years after a mechanical recommissioning. The vehicle has been subject to an overhauled brake system, replacement wheels, and a new hood and is offered with a small number of previous MOTs as well as the v5 document. The vendor rates the condition of the bodywork, engine, electrical equipment, paintwork, and interior trim as ‘Good’, with the transmission and gearbox ‘Very Good’.
