Lot 233 - 1976 Triumph Stag
|Sold - £14,000
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 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 were available. Electric windows, power steering and power-assisted brakes were fitted as standard.
Originally registered on 23rd April 1976, this Triumph presents in the colour combination of green with black interior. The engine has just been rebuilt and runs very well. It should be noted that the mileage covered on the engine since the rebuild is approximately 200 therefore a gentle period of ‘running-in’ must be adhered to. We are advised the automatic transmission operates as it should and that the car drives with no know faults. This well-priced and handsome Triumph Stag, with automatic gearbox, will carry you elegantly through the summer.
