|Odometer reading||73,000 miles|
|Estimate||£7,000 - £9,000|
Launched in 1970, the Triumph Stag was a luxury Grand Tourer and as such 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 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 gearbox along with electric windows, power steering and power-assisted brakes fitted as standard, and are well supported through various clubs and specialist suppliers.
This excellent example in Lauren Green with re-upholstered black trim is in lovely condition throughout and has a matching hard top and even a luggage holder. The last owner of this particular Stag had it in his possession for some 14 years and during his tenure, upgraded it sympathetically to include central locking, alarm/immobiliser and even crisp Xenon headlights. Coupled together with the smooth automatic gearbox and its throaty V8, this is a treat in which to tour the British countryside. Offered with a 12 month MoT test certificate and the original bill of sale, this Triumph represents great value for anyone looking to enjoy the classic car scene.
Please note, the stereo in the photographs will not be included and will be replaced with another for the sale.
