    Yet another 3.0 litre car appears, this one looks interesting and may appeal, as it is the ultimate version of the 1950’s Lagonda, with desirable Mk 2 configuration:


    For sale on the 19th of September, estimate is 28-32 k.

    I have been lucky enough to enjoy having a 3 litre DHC in the family for many years. I have often thought the fixed head saloons were a little ungainly in comparison.
    However, as time goes by, these cars grow on me more and more.
    This is a fine looking motor and should find a good home.

    Car was unsold, clearly not in the condition buyers were looking for.

    A good condition 2 car would easily make this, however, I suspect that it was pretty average, with paint blistering and lots of other minor issues needing to be sorted.

    Just a quick glance at the results suggests many cars were withdrawn or didn’t sell. Maybe the lack of sales speaks more of the event that individual cars?
    Also unsold was a beautiful Alvis Grey Lady saloon. I believe this car was once in the family. Just checking on some details as the reg has changed.

    I would suggest that it a mixture of the tough financial conditions and over-optimistic vendors.

    For example the LG6 had been in the same auction two months ago.

    imho, this 4-door was simply over-priced, which can kill a car unless it is exceptionally good.
