An order restoration with work completed in the 1990's
Introduced in June 1970, the Triumph Stag was conceived as a luxury convertible sportscar 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 in order to fashion the initial prototype), the newcomer featured all-round 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.
This Stag is finished in White with complementing Black leather interior and the original Black factory alloy wheels, it was originally Orange but is correctly registered with the DVLA and was presumably changed when restored in the 1990's. The Stag is fitted with a 3.5 litre Rover V8 believed to be a SD1 engine, which the vendor informs would benefit from a service but again is correctly DVLA declared, and a 5-speed manual gearbox. In its current ownership for four years and has since been fitted with electronic ignition, polybushes all-round, a fresh battery 6 months ago and new tyres c.8 months ago. Offered with a full V5C, large collection of past MOTs and some previous invoices. The Stag is supplied with the hood, wind deflector and hard top.
