1953 LAGONDA 3-LITRE DHC
This Lagonda’s first owner was latter-day renaissance man and plumb-voiced actor, Sir Peter Ustinov. He kept it for 12 years. The drophead left the works as a 2.6 but was fitted with a 3.0-litre engine the following year. It has been owned by the vendor since 1968, had an engine overhaul in 1997, and has been used on continental trips, H&H says.
