Stripping A Stag Roof

recently, Lydia spent some time stripping the headlining and internal parts off the hard top for our 1978 Triumph Stag.

Firstly, she removed all rubber pieces that she could, to expose the metal strips holding back the headlining. Then she had to drill out the rivets and remove the strips.

Next, Lydia prized the edge of the headlining away , pulled out the roof bars, and was able to pull out the headlining piece.

Delivering our 1972 Triumph Stag to its lucky new owner

Last week, Tom and Nick went to deliver our 1972 Triumph Stag to its new owner Dudley.

Dudley had won the car the previous week through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions and was excited to take delivery of his new pride and joy.

Upon meeting Dudley and finding out a bit more about his story, his incredible life with aircraft and cars, we also found out about his personal connection to our current charity partner, East Anglian Air Ambulance.

Dudley has been an avid supporter and advocate for the amazing work that the charity do to help people in serious situations either in the air or on the road with the incredible live saving team since he found himself in need of their help one day while visiting family.

Take a look at the moment Dudley met his 1972 Triumph Stag for the first time and more on this amazing gentleman’s story below.

You to could be just like Dudley and win a dream classic of your own while also supporting a very worthy charity by entering our 1973 Triumph Spitfire charity competition, with 100% of the profits of this competition going directly to help East Anglian Air Ambulance continue to save lives.

Stag Inspection

Classic car technician Jonn has been inspecting our 1972 Triumph Stag in preparation for it to be delivered to the lucky winner very soon.

During his inspection, Jonn found that part of the nearside rear chassis needed to be repaired. After stripping the rear suspension, Monty from the Bridge Classic Cars fabrication workshop was able to access the area and repair it. Once repaired, Monty undersealed the repaired area too.

The oil filter housing was taken out, painted, and then refitted. Jonn also fitted a new nearside rear wheel cylinder before removing the rocker cover so a new gasket could be fitted. Once the rocker gasket cover was cleaned, the new gasket was fitted.

Jonn also fitted new choke cables and a new washer bottle too.

Our classic Stag is now almost ready to be delivered to its new owner and will soon be leaving the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.

A Stripey Stag

Classic car technician Alan has had our 1972 Triumph Stag in the Bridge Classic Cars Paintshop where he has completed a couple of jobs to get the vehicle ready to go live on Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.

After making some repairs to the driver’s side door, Alan went on to add the black stripe down the side of our Stag finishing it off beautifully.

It now won’t be too much longer until someone will be lucky enough to win this classic Stag for themselves.

A Stag Arrives

Our 1972 Triumph Stag has entered the Bridge Classic Cars workshop and will now be prepared to be won through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions.

Before it goes live though, some paintwork will be done to add black pinstripes to the side of this classic Stag. It will also need to undergo a thorough assessment and inspection by the workshop team before a final plan of action is put in place.

Waiting For Its New Owner

Our 1974 Triumph Stag has been successfully delivered to the NEC in Birmingham ready for the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show Sale this weekend (25th and 26th March).

Classic Car Auctions will be hosting the auction and there are plenty of incredible vehicles available alongside our stunning Stag.

If you are interested in becoming the new owner of a 1974 Triumph Stag, then full details about it and the auction can be seen here.

Classic Car Auctions describe the car as “a handsome Sapphire Blue ‘Late Mk II’ Triumph Stag that has led a sheltered life for the last ten years” and “an attractively presented example of Triumph’s innovative design.”

We are looking forward to seeing our 1974 Triumph Stag go to a new home where it can be enjoyed by a new owner.

A Stag Enters The Workshop

Our 1974 Triumph Stag recently arrived at the Bridge Classic Cars Workshop.

As you can see from the images below, it needs a good clean and will obviously undergo a thorough inspection and assessment with the workshop team.

Once our classic car technicians have given it the all clear, we will be able to put a plan of action together for its future.

New on MyClassics.co.uk – 1973 Triumph Stag

If you’ve ever thought about owning a 1973 Triumph Stag, then now is the time to head over to MyClassics.co.uk as one has recently been listed for sale.

The car has been with its current owner since 2010 and is a past concours winner. Photos and details of the restoration work that has been undertaken by former owners are available, so this certainly sounds like a well-cared-for classic car.

The current owner feels that the Stag is not used enough so, hopefully, a new owner can be found who will be able to enjoy many miles in this beautiful car and get it back out onto the road where it belongs.

Triumph Stag Update

Our Triumph Stag has had a new rear bumper and exhaust and is in the process of having the boot trim attached. We’ve also been working on the heater and the gearbox which had a leaking seal.

Stag Awaits Parts

Our 1973 Triumph Stag is awaiting parts such as wipers and a bumper before it can be reassembled.

Triumph Stag On The Home Straight

Our 1973 Triumph Stag is looking worlds away from what it did when it came to us just a few months ago. We’ve sent off the steering rack which is being overhauled due to a leak and the rear brake shoes and brake flexihoses are being replaced. After this it will just need to be started and test driven to see how it runs.

Maroon Stag’s Oil Leak

We’ve identified a long standing oil leak under our 1973 Triumph Stag that is due to faulty and damaged parts. The exhaust pipes have been rubbing on the prop shaft and show signs of a previous poor weld repair. The pipes are showing obvious signs of damage and long standing oil drips due to the build up of oil residue on the metal. The oil cooler is also damaged and in desperate need of repair.

Maroon Stag Carburettors

Our 1973 Maroon Triumph Stag has been sat stationary for a while which often causes issues with the functioning of the mechanics. Paul has stripped the carburettors and cleaned them out, which revealed the debris in the second photo and freed up the float needles.

Triumph Stag Interior Finished

Brian has recently added the finishing touches to our Maroon 1973 Triumph Stag. This car has gone from looking rather sad at Bentwaters, with an empty interior and flat tyre, to now starting to resemble a usable car!

He has fitted the tonneau cover in place by bolting the brackets into the car and fitting a catch to lock the hood in place. Brian then checked that the rear bar of the frame fits well into the cover lock and then laid the hood cover over the frame and glued the rear flap to the rear bar.

The next step was to clip the front edge in place and glue it to the front bar, followed by gluing the side and roof flaps in place. Brian then fit metal channels and rubbers in place and then trimmed the front edge of the cover, and then rivetted the metal channel and rubber in place.

After this, the rear and front seats could also be fitted. The interior now looks perfect.

Maroon Stag Trimmings And Furnishings

Brian has fitted the door cards into our Maroon Triumph Stag which not only included the trim but also the lights and electrics. Brian had to glue vinyl onto the boards and add metal trims, kitting out the door cards with pockets and arm rests as well.

We’ve also replaced the window winding mechanism in the door which allows the windows to move.

Kath has sanded and cleaned down the hood roof bars, added foam and fitted a new leather cover to ensure that its looking smart. She has also replaced the furnishing on the ash tray as well.

Brian has fitted the new under dash shelf to passenger side. Kath has fitted the carpet in the boot which fits perfectly over the board Brian has made.

Brian has fitted the bracket to the new boot board and has cut the new boot board to fit right in the car. Once adjusted to fit perfectly, he could lay the carpet over it and finish the task. She’s also fitted a new cover and chrome onto the rear hood cover. Kath is then waiting for the hood webbing straps, metal channels and rubber seals to arrive and then she can start fitting the hood.

Brian has also been gluing the vinyl to the rear bar of the hood frame.

Brian has been glueing vinyl to the ‘B’ post trim panels. He then has to glue the vinyl to the plastic side trim panels for the roof and fit the ‘B’ post trim panels in place. Brian then fit the velcro onto the frame as well as the plastic trim & metal channel for the side rubbers. He then fit the rubber into the metal channels and finished by fitting the back plastic trim, metal channel and rubber in place.

Kath has also begun the webbing lining for the roof hood bars. She’s wrapped up the sides in Velcro for the hood to fasten to and attached the metal channel. She then adds a rubber seal, a front header rail and covers the front section in foam then black vinyl.
