Lot 424: Triumph Stag Convertible with Hardtop

The Beaulieu Sale, Bonhams (7 September 2013)

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 By the time production commenced in 1970, the 2000's six-cylinder engine had been replaced by a 3-litre V8 based on an overhead-camshaft four - later to power the Dolomite range - already being produced by Triumph for SAAB. A '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, hardtop, or soft-with-hardtop forms. Finished in saffron with black interior, this manual/overdrive, soft-with-hardtop model has had only four previous owners. Restored in 1995, 'TDX 64K' is described by the vendor as in generally good condition, though the overdrive electrical circuit and offside door switch are faulty. The car is offered with various spares, an original owner's manual, Haynes service guide, Leyland workshop manual, assorted previous owner documentation, sundry restoration invoices, current MoT/tax and Swansea V5. An oil cooler, Kenlowe electric cooling fan, power-assisted steering, tow bar and a non-standard ignition switch are the only notified deviations from factory specification.
