Footnotes

  • The Lagonda was purchased in 2016 by the current owner from a fellow VSCC member, David Woodward who had purchased the car at auction in 2005. Subject of considerable restoration some years ago and remains in very good order with a charming patina. The previous owner was a coachmaker by trade and restored the car at his business. This included a complete cosmetic restoration, with a retrimmed leather interior. The engine was rebuilt by Aston Martin specialists Headshops in Warrington and has covered under 1,000 miles since. Benefiting from an alternator conversion fitted during the electrical rewire. The car has been MOT tested and passed with no advisories – the tester commenting on what a fine example it is. It has very good Michelin radial tyres fitted, along with fog and spot lamps.

    The Lagonda has been shown at various events including the Tatton Park Classic Car Show in 2007, and was taken by the present owner to the Lagonda Club AGM at the De Vere Wokefield Estate in 2017 where it garnered many admiring comments. His advancing years have seen the car used less and less and he feels it is time to pass it on to the next 'custodian'.
