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 By the time production commenced in 1970, the 2000's six cylinder engine had been replaced by a three litre V8. 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, hard top, or soft with hardtop formats. Motor Sport described the Stag's interior as, 'well appointed, having all the usual instrumentation one would expect in a high performance car.'This lovely black on black Triumph Stag was first registered on 9th November 1973 and presents very well. The current vendor has lavished much time and expenditure with his car and recently undertaking a restoration on his beloved Stag. The history file shows no lack of upkeep denoted by older invoices and MoT certificated, however, it has been in the last two years that this Stag has been transformed, we are informed with bills surmounting to nearly £20,000. Included in the restoration was a full respray, rebuilt engine and gearbox. Recently £2,000 has been spent having the car tuned by a Triumph specialist and new roof frame fitted. A desirable manual with overdrive example offered with a new MoT, this Triumph Stag is certainly well priced and the perfect foil for lazy V8 motoring this summer with the roof down."
