1954 Lagonda 3-Litre dhc
Aston Martin built 20 MkI Lagonda 3-Litre dropheads but this car, destined for the Duke of Edinburgh, boasted a power hood and a floor-change gearbox, as well as a radio telephone. As a result of its sale, Aston Martin Lagonda gained its first Royal Warrant. Looked after on an almost weekly basis at Windsor Castle or the Royal Mews by the work, and used by Prince Philip to go to polo matches and drop Prince Charles off at school it went on an Australian tour with the Queen and the Duke in the late 1950s.
The vendor has had the car since 1977 and is the car’s third private owner. H&H says the body was restored and painted in 1990 and the engine overhauled 10 years ago. A thoroughly interesting example of a sadly much-forgotten model.
