Launched in 1970 the Triumph Stag was a luxury Grand Tourer.
Envisioned as a luxury sports car, the Triumph Stag was designed to
compete directly with the Mercedes-Benz SL class models. All Stags
were four-seater convertible coupés, but for structural rigidity
and to meet new American rollover standards at the time, the Stag
required a B-pillar 'roll bar' hoop connected to the windscreen
frame by a T-bar. A removable hardtop was a popular factory option
for the early Triumph Stags, and was later supplied as standard
equipment. A new 2.5 litre V8 designed and developed by Triumph's
Harry Webster was later enlarged to 2997cc under Harry Webster's
replacement, Spen King. Most Stags were fitted with the Borg
Warner automatic gear box along with electric windows, power
steering and power-assisted brakes fitted as standard. The Triumph
Stag is well supported through various clubs and specialist
This excellent Triumph Stag was subject to a complete restoration by the Stag specialists Regency Classics during 1992/3 being finished with the fitting of a new engine; the car has only covered 20,000 miles since 1993 is still in pristine condition. Finished in green with matching hard top and tan interior this Triumph Stag is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in May 2014, the handbook pack which includes the handbook and service book, a photographic record of the 1993 restoration and a file containing invoices and old MoT test certificates. Very good, restored examples of Triumph Stags are becoming increasingly difficult to find, and are recognised as an up and coming classic which are very easy to maintain given the number of specialist suppliers and car clubs.
