1973 Triumph Stag
3.0 (182.9 cu. in.) V8 engine, Overhead cam, Dual exhaust, Automatic transmission, convertible with T-top roll bar, and hardtop. All original condition, no rust, no bodywork. Clean straight original body! Exterior is nice with original paint that was badly faded, but buffed out nicely! Lots of little chips, but looks good for a 43 year old car! No rust!
This Stag has been basically in storage for 16 years! The past 6 years I've had it in my garage, and prior to that it was in a shop all but 1 year, where it was outdoors in a storage yard.Interior is nice, seats are good except for splits in drivers seat. Rear seat is great, headliner and t-bar cover are excellent. Power windows, original am/fm radio, and the original clock works too! A/C, but not hooked up. It will need carpets because the original was all dried up and shot. The mats are still there. All glass and chrome is real nice, as well as the original chrome spoke knock-off wheels.
The engine is not the original that came with the car, but a factory warranty replacement motor as designated by the "ES" suffix of the eng number. I purchased the Stag six years ago with no motor.
All I know about the original is it had head gasket issues. That's why it went in the shop. The shop got the Stag on a lien sale, and sold the motor to a guy who relentlessly bugged him for over a year.
Initially I was building a '63 Olds 215 V8 to install but really wanted a Stag motor. After years of searching, and some good luck, I found this engine, and really lucked out! A British car nut south of Lake Tahoe had it stored for years, along with lots of other cool stuff! He said it was fresh and ready. No fluids were stored in the motor, and it spun nicely by hand! I installed the motor and trans, and now it runs really nice and smooth! Truly a great find!!! I added a Holley 390cfm 4 barrel carburetor with an adapter plate from Tony Hart racing. The original Stromberg carbs are included. I installed a new stainless steel exhaust system with large-bore tail pipes. It starts right up, runs and idles smoothly. It runs and drives, but I have not taken it on a ride more than around the block yet. It needs a few more things completed first:1- kickdown cable connect at carb and finish carb linkage.2- vacuum can, charcoal canister and washer bottle need to be installed. I have all parts.3- choke cable needs to be connected at carb.4- Lights: all are intact but some don't work. Just haven't got to that yet.I will try to button this stuff up, but I'm recovering from hand surgery, so it's slow going.
Included extra parts: two BW-35 transmissions, alternators and other misc.
I was contacted by a Stag specialist who's worked on 100's of them. He pointed out that my Stag is somewhat of a rare model that was built early in l'73 and has a mix of Mk1 and Mk2 items, from the assembly line. It's referred to as a Mk1 and 1/2. Cool! He stated the only rarer models were the 2 all-wheel drive prototypes. Interesting news!
In short, it's all original, NO RUST, never wrecked, great survivor!
UPDATE: Took it for a 1 mile drive today (5/13), up to 35 mph. It ran nice and smooth, stayed cool, and it felt sooooo good to drive the old gal!! What an awesome sounding engine!
I've run the motor at high idle for about 5 minutes and she ran cool with no overheating issues.

I forgot to mention the soft top. It's in fair condition with some worn spots along the leading edge. I've only opened it a handful of times. It never operated easily but it did fully open. The last time I folded it up, I heard a snap, and decided never to open it again. So, it s a bit of a mystery, and will probably need attention.
