Car 4 of 4 – Probate sale
This is a very fine example of a Lagonda 4-seater open special, having a 2lit twin carb, twin cam engine. Very little is known about the history of the car pre-war. The Lagonda Owners Club are aware of this car and have been very helpful. To put it in a nutshell the car started life probably as a 2lit saloon in 1930. The V5 has her registered as a tourer and the date of registration is 23.1.47. I think you will agree with me, when you see this car, whoever built it was a very fine craftsman – she looks a beauty. She comes with some old tax discs, 20 odd, the last one was 2015 and old MOT’s from 1975 – 2006 which shows that the car was in regular use. This car can be viewed from now, by appointment
We have since received an additional folder of paperwork relating to the car that has been found in Mr Cherrett’s home. This includes: Mr Cherrett’s purchase invoice on 25th Feb 2000, many hand written notes detailing the cars requirements and description of mechanical workings, copies of old logbooks, MOTs from 1986 to 1998, an old logbook from 1973, ownership details requested from DVLA in April 2000 that go back to a Mr Pape in 1976, correspondence to previous owners tracing the cars history, hand written notes on the cars history and perhaps most importantly, an article on EWF99’s transformation to a special click here.
The side plates on the exhaust side and the starter motor and others have been found and will be included.
Auctioneers notes: We have decided to sell the probate cars as non-runners, We found these cars in a barn-like building covered with sheets etc. It is obvious that they have been used up to 2015 judging by the tax discs. I would suggest a small amount of re-commissioning should be the order of the day and hopefully you will be very impressed with these cars when you view them.
