Lot 327 - 1977 Triumph Stag
|Result||Sold - £4,480|
Launched in 1970, the Triumph Stag was a luxury grand tourer. Envisioned as a luxury sports car, it 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 new 2.5 litre, V8 designed and developed by Triumph's Harry Webster was later enlarged to 2,997cc. Most Stags were fitted with a Borg Warner automatic gearbox although manual gearboxes with overdrive are available. Electric windows, power steering and power-assisted brakes were fitted as standard.
This Triumph was originally registered on 6th January 1977 and requires restoration. Our inspection confirmed everything appears present and she is still fitted with the Triumph 2997cc, V8 engine, which is mated to a manual gearbox with overdrive unit. Triumph Stag's have become increasingly popular in the classic car fraternity of late and an example such as this, which is offered at no reserve, could well prove to be a bargain. Supplied with a V5C registration document.
