Lot 333 - 1973 Triumph Stag
|Odometer reading||36,400 miles|
|Estimate||£16,000 - £20,000|
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 removable hardtop was a popular factory option for the early Triumph Stags and was later supplied as standard equipment.
Originally registered on 23rd August, 1973, this Triumph Stag has recently had extensive work carried out on her and as a result she presents in excellent order. The Mimosa paintwork is in excellent order as is the contrasting interior. The top-end was rebuilt by E. J. Ward, Stag specialists, some 18 months ago and she benefits from diamond cut refurbished alloy wheels, new tyres and a new soft top. This example appears trouble free with everything working as it should including the automatic gearbox. Wax-oiled from new, this Triumph has a sound chassis with plenty of protection still on her. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 31st July 2018 together with a good history folder, this Stag is a very useable example.
