Sold 1974 Triumph Stag V8

1974 Triumph Stag V8




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 sountrack 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.

If a Stag spikes your interest, then you won't be the only one. As rising values recently have shown, the cars have gained a renewed appreciation. Not that they haven't always been popular: the Stag boasts the highest survival rate of all the British classics with just over a third of production still on the road, with prices climbing.

A cruisy way to travel – this car is in beautiful order.

Great Iconic Classic Car to own - An inspirational Stag of good quality. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

At Waimak Classic Cars, our principal interest is to ensure the preservation of classic and vintage vehicles. Please remember that our vehicles are many years old, often with further previous owners. Many have been bought by us recently. We cannot know exactly what repairs or maintenance has been done although we do our best to obtain log books and copies of invoices of work done, when, and by whom.

Our descriptions are based on our own observations and knowledge and we look for the best examples we can find. Indicated mileages are based on the records showing with NZTA and / or the vehicle’s odometer reading. Because of the age of the vehicle, this can never be guaranteed. Our inspections are generally non-invasive. Our description is based on a visual inspection and on information supplied to us by third parties.

Any sale is on the condition that the purchaser relies on his/her own judgment and does not rely on our skill or judgment or on any representation made by us. This applies even if the Buyer has not inspected the vehicle before purchase. We strongly recommend that you have the vehicle inspected by an independent assessor qualified to comment on the particular vehicle’s condition. If you are unable to organise this, then this can be organised on your behalf, at your cost.

We are proud of our reputation. However, no older vehicle can be expected to be as reliable as a new one and so all our vehicles are sold on an as is where is basis. Mechanical breakdowns, electronic failures at inconvenient times and maintenance costs are part and parcel of the ownership of classic and vintage vehicles. Reliability is a combination of the particular vehicle, how it has been driven and maintained, and luck.

For more information about this vehicle, please contact us Monday to Friday between 9:00am and 6:00pm (New Zealand Standard Time) on +64 (0) 3 310-6485 / +64 (0) 274 990-020. Alternatively, you may email us at info@waimakclassiccars.co.nz anytime.
