The Stag is a great-looking and usable family-friendly classic, the V8 engine made it an instant hit.
The Triumph Stag when unleashed in 1970, made its intent clear. An ambitious Michelotti-penned the car to compete with the best Europe could offer. With around 145BHP from its torquey V8, space for four people and the added bonus of a safety T-bar, the car was poised for great things. However, issues with the parent company meant the car never reached its full potential, yet the Stag has come around full-circle due to its sleek style and has now become sought-after thanks to its excellent parts availability and respectable image.
This example has to be considered as a garage find, after the untimely demise of its last owner. Last on the road in 2019, this 1975 automatic model with its original Triumph power-plant had been in the same ownership since 1977. It has been garaged for much of its life, but time has caught up with it somewhat. As a complete and original example, this is a wonderful opportunity to bring back to life a bona fide classic, so its glorious V8 can resonate through the open country roads again. With plenty of specialists available, this could be an ideal project car for someone looking to restore one from the ground up.
