Lot : Triumph Stag

Vintage, Classic & Collectors Motor Vehicles, BCA (22 April 2008)

It is difficult to believe that some thirty years have elapsed since the last Stag rolled off the production line. Certainly the model has transcended the decades well and the styling still looks good today. Seen as a competitor to the SL Series Mercedes during the 1970s, the Stag offered high performance motoring for four, in effortless comfort. Offered here is a 1974 example finished in black. It has been in the vendor's care for the past nine years and prior to that would seem to have seen only occasional use. The subject of a Rover V8 engine conversion, the power unit has been rebuilt with new 3.9 heads, Offenhauser manifold with Holley carburettor and stainless four-branch exhausts. Additional work undertaken has included recent replacement of the brake pads and shoes and new copper pipes, whilst the cooling system has benefited from upgraded radiator and the fitment of a Kenlowe fan. The car has been set up on a rolling road and is understood to drive very well and a Cobra immobiliser has been fitted. The black mohair hood is a replacement item and the car is offered for sale with a V5 document and an MOT certificate current until January 2009.
