1973 Triumph Stag V8


Specifications


Description

 

V8 power, four seats and Michelotti styling – the noble Stag has it all.

The Stag is a GT cruiser. Its 3.0-litre V8 majors on low-down torque, making it ideal for covering long distances, and it makes at least as wonderful a noise as the Rover V8, that was so often transplanted into Stags during the 1980s, ruining the car's authenticity.

Achingly desirable to look at, and with a soundtrack to die for, the Stag had the world at its feet. Yes they came out with a few teething problems but the good news today is that all the teething troubles are well known and most surviving Stags, like  this one have been well cared for and put together properly, with specialist knowledge. That leaves us free to enjoy the best of the Stag without worrying about what those tall poppy critics (that mostly never owned one) have to say.

It's now a strong and refined grand tourer, that's simple and cheap to maintain and has one of the best exhaust notes this side of a street rod event.
