This Essential Buyer’s Guide on Triumph’s popular Stag examines the model’s evolution, features, fittings, performance and typical problem areas through detailed text and colour photographs of both restored and original examples.
Stag enthusiast Norm Mort teams-up with Stag restorer and expert Tony Fox to write this handy pocket-size guide. Triumph’s Stag combined the smoothness and performance of a V8 in stylish Italian coachwork designed by Giovanni Michelotti, which allowed for both closed and open grand touring. This Essential Buyer’s Guide examines the model’s history, evolution, features, fittings, performance and typical problem areas through detailed text and colour photographs of both restored and original examples.
Like Veloce’s other Essential Buyer’s Guides this book features chapters such as “Is it the right car for you?”, a very detailed checklist for rating a potential Stag purchase, advice on deciding whether or not to restore a Stag, paint problems, issues that can arise through underuse, and lists of clubs and spares specialists.
Tony Fox bought his first Stag in 1991, and a total of ten other Stags came and went in the years that followed. He is a director for the Triumph Stag Club, USA and coordinator for the Stag in the Toronto Triumph Club.
A Triumph and Stag enthusiast, Norm Mort has written for car magazines and newspapers for the past 25 years. This is his fourth book on automotive history and restoration.
"A fine addition to Veloce’s series of Buyer’s Guide titles, as it’s amply illustrated with detailed color images that highlight the car’s weak areas and well-written text that points out the good ones. If you’re remotely considering a Stag, you owe it to yourself to pick up this inexpensive book and to educate yourself, so that you find the best example your dollars can buy."

"Like all these books, Triumph Stag covers all the essential aspects of inspecting a car both structurally and mechanically … if you can't take a mate to help mull it over, read this instead." – Classic Cars
"Whatever you do, take this little tome along with you. It will save you heaps." – Gay Classic Car Group
"If you are thinking of buying a Stag, you should definitely shell out £9.99 for this book. If you already have a Stag, for the price of a round of drinks it's well worth adding to the bookshelf." – Stag Owners Club
