1979 As­ton Martin Lagonda

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

The ear­li­est guise of the Wil­liam Towns Lagonda re­tains a head­turn­ing aura few other cars have achieved down the decades. With its su­perbly chis­elled looks and gen­er­ous pro­por­tions, it draws stares just as much now as when it was launched. This no-re­serve model had been com­pletely re­built by As­ton Martin in 1986, since when it had put 4200 miles un­der its wheels. The gold metal­lic paint was mi­cro-blis­tered and the sills clearly needed at­ten­tion. The in­te­rior wasn’t too bad, though – noth­ing that a se­ri­ous pro­fes­sional valet­ing couldn’t suc­cess­fully tackle. But with this model’s elec­tri­cal com­plex­ity, se­ri­ous funds would have to be set aside for cir­cuitry and the other recom­mis­sion­ing re­quired.
