Footnotes

  • 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 By the time production commenced in 1970, the 2000's six-cylinder engine had been replaced by a 3.0-litre V8 based on an overhead-camshaft four already being produced by Triumph for SAAB. A padded, '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. Introduced in 1973, the MkII version incorporated an engine revised to give smoother, quieter running and a revamped interior featuring a smaller steering wheel and redesigned seats among a host of other, more minor changes.
    A desirable manual/overdrive model, this Stag has had only four owners and comes with full history from new, including the original bill of sale, letters from all previous owners, and bills for all work. Described by the vendor as in generally very good/excellent condition, the car comes complete with hardtop and is offered with current road fund licence, with MoT to June 2013 and Swansea V5C document. A Kenlowe fan, stainless-steel exhaust, inertia-reel seatbelts, rear side windows, recent mohair hood and an aftermarket steering wheel (original supplied) are the only notified deviations from factory specification.
