1971 Triumph Stag


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 By the time production commenced in 1970, the 2000’s six-cylinder engine had been replaced by a 3.0-litre V8 based on an overhead-camshaft four already being produced by Triumph for SAAB. 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, hardtop, or soft-with-hardtop forms.

This early Mark I Triumph Stag, fitted with the rare and desirable manual gearbox, was delivered new in 1971 and has covered a very sensible 93,000 miles since. The Stag has benefitted from previous restoration work to the bodywork, whilst the original black interior is nicely preserved. Finished in Spruce Green with a matching and rare factory hardtop, we understand the Stag’s 3 litre V8 runs well, and the car drives very nicely.

Offered with all EU taxes paid, this stylish yet practical GT is the perfect car for summer driving.
