The Lagonda 2.6 Drophead Coupé, also known as the DHC, was the first car to be produced by Lagonda after the company was purchased by David Brown – the then owner of Aston Martin. Produced between 1948 and 1951 in the form of a saloon, coupé and drophead, the Lagonda was known to be very well engineered at the time, and featured a 2.6-litre twin-overhead cam straight six engine, independent front and rear suspension, as well as a rack-and-pinion steering system. This example was registered on 2nd July 1951 and has been in its current ownership since 1993. The vendor purchased the car alongside a 2.6-litre saloon, whose engine was transferred into the Drophead for its restoration. The original engine number of the drophead and saloon donor car are included in the large history file. The restoration, which spanned from 2001 to 2006, was undertaken by Gavin Lumsden, a known restorer of post-war Rileys, and was a complete body-off procedure. The soft-top was also totally restored, and the interior of the car is completely original bar two new door panels. There are only a limited number of bills that have survived, however there is a good photographic record of the restoration. The car runs and drives very well, and has also recently received a new floor mounted gearbox conversion (replacing the column mounted system) supplied by Aston Services. Overall, the car is in very good condition and has been well cared for during its last 28 years of ownership.
