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 By the time production commenced in 1970, the 2000's six-cylinder engine had been replaced by a 3.0-litre V8 based on an overhead-camshaft four - later to power the Dolomite range - already being produced by Triumph for SAAB.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.
    An automatic transmission model, this Stag was sold new via Cheam Motors of Ewell Surrey and first owned by Jay, Feld & Co Ltd of London SW8. The car subsequently passed through the hands of three other owners before being purchased by the deceased in August 2009. A list of all four preceding owners and the 2009 purchase receipt is on file together with a most substantial quantity of bills for servicing, maintenance and parts (including a high-torque starter motor and multi-core radiator) indicating that the Stag has been very well cared for throughout its life (close inspection recommended). The accompanying history includes MoT certificates dating back to 1995 and the original owner's wallet containing the instruction manual and service booklet, the latter stamped up to September 1987, mostly by Cheam Motors, the supplying dealer. It should be noted that the service book records the original engine as 'LF43754HEA'. 'XGH 497S' is finished in brown with tan leather interior while other noteworthy features include power-assisted steering, electric windows, tilt steering wheel and a stainless steel exhaust system. The factory hardtop is included in the sale. A fine example of this increasingly collectible model, the Stag runs well but will require re-commissioning having been stood for some time. The car comes with MoT to 13th May 2012 and Swansea V5C document. No reserve.
