Stylish, fast and practical, the Stag began life as a Triumph 2000-based styling exercise by Italian carrossier Giovanni Michelotti. A 2+2 convertible, Michelotti's design featured a quad-lamp grille and sculpted front and rear ends, the latter destined to appear on many future Triumphs. By the time production commenced in 1970, the 2000's six cylinder engine had been replaced by a three-litre V8. A padded, 'T' shaped roll bar bracing the door pillars and windscreen was one of the Stag's most distinctive features and the model could be had in soft top, hard top, or soft with hardtop forms. Motor Sport described the Stag's interior as, 'well appointed, having all the usual instrumentation one would expect in a high performance car.'
This Triumph Stag was originally sold by Reigate Garage Limited and was registered on 21st April 1971. Presenting in blue with black interior, this manual transmission Triumph is fitted with an overdrive unit. During our demonstration test drive, the car started immediately when requested with no adverse noises or rattles from the V8 engine and she appeared to drive very well. She is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate valid until 28th June 2018 together with a good history folder and a Heritage Certificate.
