    There’s also an LG6 coming up in the H&H sale. It’s a coachbuilt saloon on the longer chassis. Looks decently original, but yet more proof of the apparent inability of independent coachbuilders to come up with anything to match the art and style of Lagonda’s Frank Feeley.
    It’s a rather boring 1935, or even earlier, style; why someone in 1939 would have paid extra for something lumpy and out of date is beyond me. We are not told who the coachbuilder was.

    I certainly agree about the boring (but worthy) nature of the H&H LG6 saloon.

    Much more fun is Brian Saville’s excellent W24P 16/80 saloon. I know the car pretty well. Brian is selling it for health reasons and I hope it will go to an appreciative home. If any one needs a more detailed briefing on this car, drop me a mail or PM.

    Interesting comments on this LG6, overall looks to be pretty original and taxed for road use on the continent.

    In contrast to some of the other styles on the long chassis be it V12 or LG5, imho, this car looks very handsome, beauty is in the eye of the beholder of course. Being a limousine makes it less desirable than, say, a drophead or even a short chassis factory saloon and I think this is reflected in the estimate of 40-50k; but no doubt it will make more….

    The bulkhead plate shows that it was supplied as a chassis and there are no details given of the coachbuilder by the auction house.

    However, for a limousine it is quite elegant & not too bulky and the LG6 is an excellent model, being the ultimate development of the Meadows 6, heavily “breathed on” by WO.

    I do agree though that it lacks the light touch of Frank Feeley who had a very good eye for car body styling.

    To be fair, SRD, you’re quite right…in terms of some of the monstrosities perpetrated on the longer chassis, this does at least have a light touch, and, of course, imposing length to it.

    It has a charm but I think the all black paintwork does zippo for the lines. See the WO 8 litre in green with Black trim. it would transform the Lagonda into quite a special looking limo. Mind only my view.

    Stewart hi

    I fully agree, that the color does nothing for this car, perhaps a two-tone scheme might help as well.

    But one has to see past the color in this instance and then you can see it is actually is a striking looking limo.

    I wonder how long this car will be, a good point of course!

    Someone got a good buy, the car sold with buyers premium for ?37,290.
