The Stag was launched in June 1970 and immediately created a favourable impression with buyers, who were quite literally enamoured by its simple beauty and its gorgeous engine note with accompanying exhaust ‘woofle'.
Performance was good – its 2997cc Triumph engine certainly did everything asked of it.
Sales were good and the effect on the Triumph range as a whole was marked – the uplift in image was there for all to see. Achingly desirable to look at, and with a sountrack to die for, the Stag had the world at its feet.
Sure they came out with a few issues, but the good news today is that all the teething troubles are well known and good surviving Stags, like this one, have been put together properly, with specialist knowledge, which leaves us free to enjoy them without worrying.

When the Stag hit the market, there literally was no opposition for it. In contemporary advertising, Triumph highlighted the glamorous nature of the Stag, comparing it positively to Mercedes-Benz and Alfa Romeo's products¦ Certainly the advertising department were correct to do so, as it was a very satisfying GT car to drive¦
Within the space of a few short years, the triumph Stag picked up a cult following, and remains today the doyen of classic British cars – and lines up alongside the MGB and Morris Minor as the most iconic classics of the time.
These cars are today highly collectible especially in Manual. They're hard to come by and never last, so be quick.
