STAG

Written by Adrian Diehm

triumph_stagThe Stag was released in September 1970. The body was designed by Micholetti and powered by its own unique Triumph designed 3000cc SOHC V8 that produced 145bhp. All Stags came with a removeable hardtop and foldaway soft top. The Stag V8 convertible was astounding value for money, less than half the cost of its rivals.
