The Triumph Stag is a 2+2 sports tourer which was sold between 1970 and 1978 by the Triumph Motor Company, styled by Italian designer Giovanni Michelotti.
Envisioned as a luxury sports car, the Stag 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 proposed American rollover standards of the time – the Stag required a B-pillar “roll bar” hoop connected to the windscreen frame by a T-bar. A body-colour removable hardtop with defrost wires on the rear window, full headliner and lever-operated quarter windows was a popular factory option for the early Stags, and was later supplied as a standard fitment.
This car is a 1974 Carmine Red 3 Litre V8 Manual with Overdrive that belonged to a retired Royal Naval Chief engineer. To say the car has been looked after is an understatement. It is completely immaculate from its new Mohair hood down to its perfect and original alloy wheels. The paintwork is unmarked, gleaming in the sunlight yesterday when we collected her. She runs smoothly, pulling like a train through all four speeds and overdrive with that satisfying V8 soundtrack coming from the stainless steel exhaust, it has an extensive history file and comes with a Heritage Certificate confirming it is a UK matching numbers car
A real head-turner wherever it goes!
