1973 Triumph OtherWouldn’t it be great if you could have a Triumph Stag with a Triumph engine that WASN’T high maintenance? A beautiful classic that you could trust? Well, you can.
My 1973 Stag has been built the way Triumph should have done it: With a beefed up rebuilt TR6 engine. There’s a mild Piper cam for a little extra mid-range oomph, custom stainless steel headers and triple carbs. The result: A smooth, quiet and quick Stag that doesn’t leak, burn oil, overheat or have any of the issues that ruined an otherwise great car.
The pictures tell the story here. The car -- every aspect of it -- has been restored, no expense spared, no corners cut. Money was not an object.
The car I selected was a good one -- an all original low-mile Stag that had been off the road since the early 1980s. No rust, one minor dent in the right-rear quarter, and just 28,000 miles before the original V-8 engine croaked and rendered the car useless.
Flash forward to 2011. I bought the car and had it restored but instead of using the Stag engine, decided to set it up exactly like the 2500S sedan, with a TR6 engine and overdrive transmission. From England, I sourced all the proper Triumph mounting brackets for the engine and transmission, including the power steering and front anti-roll bar.
Everything bolted right up with no modifications to the body. Only the alternator wiring harness had to be changed. That’s it.
Of course, she’s got a four-speed stick with J-Type electric overdrive -- the best gearbox for the Stag.
The driveline is extremely tight and quiet, no clunks, no leaks. This is not a slow car.
Cosmetically: all new or NOS exterior trim except for door handles and windshield vent.
Interior: seats have new foam. new carpet. New headliner. No electrical issues. everything works right down to the door buzzer.
Paint PPG black with clearcoat.
Note: There was a color change. The car was originally Magenta, quite a tragic color for the Stag. That’s now been fixed. Triple black gives the car a very classy look.
Also: The convertible top and frame (perfect shape) are installed. That saves hauling around 150 lbs of dead weight. Once installed, the hardtop has never been off.
There’s just too much to list. So, ask questions. I am happy to take pictures of anything you might see. and the car is available for test drives and inspections.
My Stag is a joy to drive. I would trust it on a trip of any duration.
As you might guess: This Stag will not go cheaply. It is, in fact, priced at premium over Stags with the troublesome Triumph V-8 and cars with off-brand engines.
