1972 Triumph Other
The Triumph Stag enjoyed a brief production run from 1970 through 1973. Styled by Giovanni Michelotti, ho also penned the Spitfire and TR4, t was available as a convertible with built-in roll bar or with a detachable hardtop roof. The Stag was Triumph’s first car to use a V8 engine and was a rare foray into the luxury 2+2 grand touring class. Unfortunately the Triumph engine has proven to be problematic over the years, o many Stags have undergone conversion to a Land Rover-sourced V8, hich is virtually the same size, eighs less, s eminently more “tunable”, nd has earned a reputation for reliability. This 1971 Triumph Stag already has its motor mounts re-located for the conversion. All of the stock interior components are included, s well as the original Triumph engine. The body is in great shape, ith no rust or damage. When properly completed, his “Stag Rover” promises to be a unique and reliable classic touring car.
