Triumph + Mustang = Stag Pony?

Stag Pony Project

Folks what you have here is a combination project, a 1971 Triumph Stag with a 1982 V-6 Mustang engine.  Listed here on ebay, parked in Helenwood, Tennessee, and priced at $3,800 BIN is this interesting looking project for your consideration.

'71 Stag mustang engineWe do not know the mileage on the engine or of the car.  The owner states the engine runs strong and the transmission, brakes, clutch, differential, steering, etc. are all good.  There is a “small slow” leak in the brake fluid reservoir or in the hose from it.  This is not a good and should be an easy fix.

'71 Stag hardtopThe car comes with the hardtop, bumpers, chrome trim, and new emblems.  The hardtop needs some work and the bumpers are in need of a polish.

There is some surface rust on some parts sections of the floor boards and the interior needs some work. The console has been hacked up for the shifter, so you will want to find a boot or something to cover that up.

The car has great paint according to the owner and this is a great car for someone who wants to have an excellent running Stag.  Here you have another project that isn’t finished yet, but is getting close.  It appears to be a good or great deal for the price if you can live with a hybrid. What do you think?  How many Stag Pony cars are out there?

    If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s an open car with sedan door frames.

    Carrying on from J.H.’s comment, the top arrangement with a hardtop covering T-tops and a backlight seems awkward and involves too much stuff. The Stag should be a real convertible. Give it a soft top that folds down or can be taken off and stowed. Then for bad weather put the hard top on, which looks OK on the car. For me T-tops always detract.

    The car might be OK at $3800 for someone who wants a 4-seat open British car, but that’s more than I would pay and it’s more than it’s worth in No America, especially with the replacement engine/transmission and all the work that’s left to do. I’ll be surprised if it sells for that much, but good luck to the seller anyway.

    I like it. I agree about too many tops and the interior should have new wood for the console and facia. The latter won’t be easy. Then there’s the carpeting and the folding convert top. A good one could do the job all alone on the west coast. It’s a car you’d have to drive to know how it handles since it’s and unknown quantity. or should I say quality. But it should go and it’s a cheap way to get into a quick sports car. A few bucks ought to come off the price tho’.

    I’m glad it’s not in MN! Michelotti styling and Ford reliability would be a hard combo to pass up! ^_^
