Our Triumph Stag first saw the light of day (or the end of the production line) on 5th June 1975 and was promptly despatched to join the BLMC fleet as a manager’s car, a role in which it remained until May 1981. It was then sold off and went through two other owners until I bought it at auction in May 2015. Unfortunately it came with absolutely no history, the previous owner having died shortly after having carried out what appears to have been a pretty complete rebuild/restoration.
The car is still in its original colour of New White and remains pretty standard, including the original Triumph 3 litre V8 engine and manual overdrive gearbox. Work done on the car whilst in our brief ownership has included replacing the steering rack, fuel tank and fuel pump and a certain amount of ‘tidying up’ of the trim and bodywork.
