This is an accurate scale model by Cult Scale of the 1970 Triumph Stag Mk1 in yellow
Envisioned as a luxury sports car, the Stag was designed to compete directly with the Mercedes-Benz SL class models. All Stags were four-seater convertible coupés, but for structural rigidity – and to meet proposed American rollover standards of the time – the Stag required a B-pillar "roll bar" hoop connected to the windscreen frame by a T-bar. A body color removable hard top with defrost wires on the rear window, full headliner and lever operated quarter windows was a popular factory option for the early Stags, and was later supplied as a standard fitment.
The car was launched one year late in 1970, to a warm welcome at the various international auto shows. The Stag rapidly acquired a reputation for mechanical unreliability, usually in the form of overheating. These problems arose from a variety of causes.
In the James Bond film, Diamonds Are Forever, Bond commandeers a Saffron Yellow 1970 Triumph Stag from a diamond smuggler. Unfortunately the sound dubbing appears, insultingly, to be of a Triumph Herald, with a particularly noisy gearbox!
