Description

"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 new 2.5 litre, V8 designed and developed by Triumph's Harry Webster was later enlarged to 2,997cc. Most Stags were fitted with a Borg Warner automatic gearbox although manual gearboxes with overdrive were available. Electric windows, power steering and power-assisted brakes were fitted as standard.
This well-prepared example was registered new on 20th April 1978 and is presented in good order throughout having recently been treated to various maintenance work. Offered in Old English White over a contrasting interior, this Stag is reported to drive well and sounds fantastic when on song. Complete with various sundry invoices and the UK registration document, this well-priced and handsome Triumph Stag, with automatic gearbox, will carry you elegantly through the summer."
