Stag: A Triumph of Survival
- 07 July 2021Subscribe
Go to any All-British classic car show and the sports cars you will inevitably see are the MGB, Triumph Stag, Triumph TR3 and TR4, MG Midget and Austin Healey.
Now, which one is claimed to have the highest survival rate?
It’s the Stag! Surprised? Yep, me too. Depending on the source of the information the survival rate for Stags in the UK is 44 %. In Australia the Stag survival rate is a remarkable 55.7%.To put that into perspective the Ford Capri has a less than one percent UK survival rate.
The MGB is also in single digit numbers.
This advertising photo of the Stag places at the centre of knights of the realm, horses, young people milling around in front of the gates of a county estate in an attempt to convey a British “upper class” image.
Released in the UK on 9th June, 1970, the Stag remained in production for seven years. It appeared in Australia in 1973 and was on the US market from July 1971 to July 1973. The global sales tally for the Stag was 25,877. UK sales were around 19,000. The USA accounted for 2,871 sales and 1,596 were sold in Australia.
