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 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.

In current ownership for the last 12 years, ‘PMC 954L’ is presented in its original colour combination of Triumph Pure White (code 19) with a contrasting Black interior. This particular car has a manual gearbox (4 speed with overdrive), having been converted from the commonly found automatic transmission. Subject to photographically documented restoration between 2010 to present with invoices documenting expenditure to the tune of £46,500 and much work completed by its mechanic owner, ‘PMC 954L’comes accompanied with an impressive history file with a large collection of invoices dating back to 1998, a large collection of previous MOTs, a Heritage Certificate and the V5C.
