1955 Lagonda 3-Litre DHC

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

The sole Lagonda in the sale, this ex­am­ple has plenty of his­tory, in­clud­ing be­ing loaned to Juan Manuel Fan­gio in 1955 and 1956, af­ter which the com­pany sold it to a buyer in Sur­rey. Hav­ing been owned by a car park­ing com­pany (a re­sult of un­paid park­ing charges) it was bought by the seller in 2012 who had the cylin­der head re­built and con­verted it to run on un­leaded petrol. With the orig­i­nal Con­nolly leather and wal­nut in­te­rior, this Tick­ford of Newport Pag­nell coach­built drop­head coupé in Bris­tol Red has a lot in its favour and is sen­si­bly es­ti­mated.
