If the starting price is $4500 and the car is as described, that seems very
reasonable. Obviously the lower the price, the better from your perspective.

Remember, the STAG engine is unique to the STAG.  The 3.0 liter Stag
V8 engine was ONLY found in the Stag, so it makes any great distance
driving somewhat a risk should any major engine problem befall you.
That's a good argueing point for low price.

An important consideration is that the appeal for the car is pretty much
limited to Triumph people as they know the "problems" of the car and
the prospect of good maintenance, repair, etc.

Good lucvk,
