Description

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 By the time production commenced in 1970, the 2000’s six-cylinder engine had been replaced by a 3.0-litre V8 based on an overhead-camshaft four already being produced by Triumph for SAAB.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. Introduced in 1973, the MkII version incorporated an engine revised to give smoother, quieter running and a revamped interior featuring a smaller steering wheel and redesigned seats among a host of other, more minor changes.

This Stag has been in the same ownership since 1979 until 2016, and benefits from a thorough restoration by the previous keeper in 2001/02. Presented in resplendent and excellent order throughout this much cared for Stag has an extensive history file that fills two folders and contains a vast amount of invoices bills and receipts. Offered with a full years MoT this Stag is ready to be used and enjoyed over the summer months.
