The Stag was Triumph’s first luxury car and sold with the snappy slogan “Keeping up with the Triumph Stag is no problem if you’ve got the money”.
The car featured power-assisted rack & pinion steering, front disc brakes, fully independent suspension, alloy wheels and a new overhead cam 3-litre V8 engine.
Standard equipment included deeply cushioned adjustable bucket seats, electric windows and a padded steering wheel.
The Stag came as a soft-top and the roof could be removed to make a convertible with a distinct T-shaped padded rollbar. An optional removal hardtop was also available.
Less than 26,000 Triumph Stags were built by British Leyland over an eight-year period.
