MOT Expriy: 17/09/2019

A well-known name in British motoring history but one that was in decline by the early 1950s, Lagonda cars were still accomplished grand tourers for the buyer with more press-on inclinations. MPH's convertible example comes to the open market from a private collection, however will require further work to complete, the bodywork is sound as is the paintwork which has recently been refinished. Many parts have been refurbished and are present, ready to fit and complete this project. With little work required this quite rare post war drophead is a great opportunity to acquire a fun winter project that simply needs finishing off ready for the new year.
