This Lagonda 3-Litre saloon has had only eight owners, all documented. The vendor purchased 'LPM 949' from Grundy Mack (now the Classic and Sportscar Centre) of West Knapton, Yorkshire in June 2006, since when it has undergone extensive refurbishment and upgrading. Between November 2011 and April 2012, Aston Motorsport of Westbury totally rebuilt the engine with Omega pistons, unleaded cylinder head conversion and a new oil pump, and fitted a Tremec five-speed gearbox complete with hydraulic clutch. The carburettors have been overhauled and are supplied with fuel from a new aluminium tank (made by Axminster Specialist Panels) by a new Burlen Fuel Systems SU fuel pump. The radiator has been upgraded with a high efficiency core and the braking system now has a dual-circuit master cylinder with twin servos. It should be noted that the engine has covered around 500 miles since the rebuild and is not yet run in.
The dynamo has been replaced with an alternator and the electrics changed to negative earth. Electronic ignition was already on the car when purchased, and the distributor has been refurbished by The Distributor Doctor. The windscreen wiper motor has been upgraded to enable intermittent wipe control by a rotary switch mounted to the right of the steering column under the dashboard, which has been re-varnished by The Wood Workshop in Calne. Speedy Cable refurbished the speedometer, clock, tachometer and oil pressure gauge in 2012. The seats and door cards were re-trimmed and the headlining replaced by South West Auto Trimming of Calne in 2010. A new laminated front windscreen was fitted by Trinity Engineering, Cobham in 2006. The radio is the original one, upgraded with modern internals by the Vintage Wireless Company and fitted with an MP3 input. The old valve unit in the engine bay now houses the ignition control box. There is a Falcon Predator Mk2 immobiliser fitted (the black sensor tag on the key ring has to be close to dashboard for the sensor loop to detect it).
The car was re-sprayed in 1981 but the offside rear wing has had to be repainted following a poor repair by a previous owner; although the correct code was used, the paint match is not good but this is about to be rectified. Described as in generally good condition, this extensively refurbished and upgraded Lagonda 3-Litre is offered with old-style logbook, sundry restoration invoices, current MoT/tax and Swansea V5 registration document. It should be noted that the previous speedometer unit had recorded 104,000 miles; the current reading is 4,008.
