• The stag is a 4 seater. Love the looks. Love the sound of the V8. The build quality can be remedied as well the issues with the original motor.

    Prices for these have been going up. This might be a reasonable price for one with the transplant.

    Wonder why two different color carpeting? Does it have the hard top? No mention of rust repair. Every one I have seen had at least some rust.

  • I suppose if I tripped over that 2.8 engine while walking back to a Stag with a freshly blown up engine. ….. and it was free…… and I didn't have to do the work …. and I had nothing else to do with my life … that would work for me.

  • Like the BMW Baur, another example of car manufacturer's response to the government threat to outlaw convertibles back in the 60's and 70's. Convertibles were considered 'unsafe in a rollover'…. so what was the response: a built-in roll bar! That is the reason for its unusual design: form follows function. When the threat to outlaw convertibles failed to materialize, auto manufacturers resumed building factory convertibles. There were NO American factory convertibles built after the 1976 Cadillac Eldorado…. until the threat eased around 1983. The BMW Baurs were designed similarly, and for the same reason.

  • Maybe 10 years ago, at the General Store in West Danville, VT, I encountered a caravan of about 10 or 20 Stags, visiting from the UK with their British and Australian owners for a USA Tour. I was especially interested because at the time I owned (but was not driving at the time) a TR6. The drivers were happy to chat and had been enjoying a great time over here. I wonder if anyone else has a memory of that tour…
