Description

Stag enthusiast Norm Mort teams-up with Stag restorer and expert Tony Fox to write this handy pocket-size guide. Triumph’s Stag combined the smoothness and performance of a V8 in stylish Italian coachwork designed by Giovanni Michelotti, which allowed for both closed and open grand touring. This Essential Buyer’s Guide examines the model’s history, evolution, features, fittings, performance and typical problem areas through detailed text and color photographs of both restored and original examples.   Like Veloce’s other Essential Buyer’s Guides this book features chapters such as “Is it the right car for you?”, a very detailed checklist for rating a potential Stag purchase, advice on deciding whether or not to restore a Stag, paint problems, issues that can arise through under-use, and lists of clubs and spares specialists.  Tony Fox bought his first Stag in 1991, and a total of ten other Stags came and went in the years that followed. He is a director for the Triumph Stag Club, USA and coordinator for the Stag in the Toronto Triumph Club.  A Triumph and Stag enthusiast, Norm Mort has written for car magazines and newspapers for the past 25 years. This is his fourth book on automotive history and restoration.

The author

Norm Mort began taking pictures of old vehicles parked at the side of the road before he was ten. At 12 years of age, Norm was the youngest member on the executive of the Antique and Classic Car Club of Canada, Toronto Chapter. In the 1960s he began accumulating photos and information on motoring. His personal vehicle collection has included everything from a 1922 D-Type Vauxhall and 1935 Morgan F2 to a 1966 Autobianchi van and 1962 Studebaker Station Wagon. A writer for magazines and newspapers such as World of Wheels, Sports Car Market, the Toronto Sun, Montreal Gazette, Old Autos, and numerous others in the field of transport for over 30-years, he has written more than 15 historic vehicle books in the Veloce series Those were the days ....

Tony Fox was born in the UK and moved to North America in 1969. He completed an engineering apprenticeship with the Austin Motor Company, which later became British Motor Corp. He worked for BMC until moving to Canada and joining Massey Ferguson, where he was involved with most aspects of engineering. His interest in the Triumph Stag started in 1991 when he purchased his first car in Texas. This was quickly followed by a second car, which he drove back from California and continues to own to this day. A succession of ten other Stags came and went. His interest in British cars extends to his membership of several car clubs; he is Vice President of the British Saloon Car Club of Canada, Director for the Triumph Stag Club USA, and coordinator for the Stag in the Toronto Triumph Club.
