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. A new 2. 5 litre V8 designed and developed by Triumph's
Harry Webster
was later enlarged to 2997cc. Most Stags were fitted with a Borg
Warner
automatic gearbox. although manual gearboxes with over drive are
highly
desirable. electric windows. power steering and power-assisted
brakes were
fitted as standard. The Triumph Stag is well supported through
various clubs
and specialist suppliers.



First registered on 1st January 1978 and owned by the
current vendor since 26th
April 1986. this Triumph Stag can only be described as exceptional.
The
fastidious owner has kept near perfect records of expenditure
during his
stewardship with invoices totalling £23. 56. 83 from 7th
June 1986
until the current day. It is worth noting the manual gearbox was
replaced in
1990 and the engine was rebuilt in December 2009 at a cost of
£7. 99. 27. To be
expected. there are a number of invoices for bodywork over a period
of time; however. the carpets were replaced and seats re-trimmed in
April 2010 with invoices of £1. 00 and a new soft top was fitted in
October 2011 by South East Trimming at a cost of £750. The net
result of such substantial investment is a Triumph Stag of the
highest quality. Supplied
with a V5 registration document together with an MoT test
certificate valid until 23rd August 2014 and a
magnificent history file.
