Lana – 1972 Triumph Stag RHD
We found Lana in the Netherlands, in excellent condition, following an extensive restoration by its previous owner. The engine was professionally overhauled by the Dutch Stag specialist ‘T Zand.
The Triumph Stag (1970 to 1977) was styled by Italian designer Giovanni Michelotti who also worked for Ferrari, Lancia and Maserati. The Stag was sold as a luxury sports car as direct competitor to the Mercedes-Benz SL. All Stags were four-seater convertible coupés. Nearly 26.000 Stags were built, only 9.000 of them are still running.
The V8 engine has a capacity of 3.0L and the usual problems of overheating have been cured on our car. Stags were equipped with a Borg-Warner three-speed automatic gearbox. Ours is fitted with a 4-speed manual gearbox which makes it even rarer today.
In the James Bond film Diamonds Are Forever, Bond commandeers a 1970 Triumph Stag from a diamond smuggler in Amsterdam. Our car is named after the James Bond Girl in that exact movie, the provocative Lana Wood.
