The Triumph Stag was conceived as a 4 seater sports convertible and designed to compete with the Mercedes Benz SL offering "luxury" motoring at an affordable price. What makes the Stag special is the blend of Michelotti design and Triumph engineering combining performance and comfort as standard: V8 engine with alloy cylinder heads and overhead camshafts; fully independent suspension; the convenience of gearlever operated overdrive, power steering and electric windows; in a two door 4 seater convertible body with either hard or soft tops. Perfectly proportioned and a unique proposition when first released in 1971 and still turning heads today.
Our LHD Triumph Stag was acquired in 1998 from a classic car dealer in Madrid in a semi-dismantled state. Upon purchase the dealer re-assembled the car using many new parts imported from specialist suppliers based in England. Following re-commissioning in 1999 the car was re-registered in Spain with Spanish plates and then driven to England to be checked over by Triumph Stag specialist Tony Hart. At this time the engine was converted to run on unleaded and the suspension was completely rebuilt with poly bushes, new springs and Koni dampers.
After a number of trouble free years running in Spain, the car was returned to the UK in 2005 to Faversham Classics for a full engine rebuild and engine bay detailing. Finally being re-imported and UK registered in 2010. More recently after a visit to Abinger Hammer Motors and a complete overhaul of the front and rear suspension and refurbishment of the original factory alloys the Stag inspires a new found confidence and ability.
The combination of British Racing Green exterior paint and the original tan vinyl interior is itself a classic combination, but with the Triumph V8 burble added to the mix, the car represents the very best of the Triumph marque.
