H&H are offering XWX3 on 20 April, estimate ?350-400K (!)SRD8 March 2016 at 19:28 #51812
Car comes from a well known private Cambridge collection.
Whilst clearly the pick of the crop with its special hood and provenance, will it sell at this price ?
Best price to date for a 1950’s DB Lagonda has been ?150k last year for a superb 3.0 dhc
A nice Pathe film of the car and owner from the period,
and it can be found on footage of 1he 1956 Melbourne games etc..David9 March 2016 at 09:08 #51813

I know the person who owns the car and the person who maintains it but have no idea what it was worth.
I was going to ask Prince P about it when he attended an event I was at a couple of years ago but we got onto an even more entertaining subject so I did not have a chance to mention it.
This car delivered Prince Charles to his prep school – take a look at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5CHAQZfs5c.
By the time he was taken to Gordonstoun in 1962 it looks as though Prince P had changed it for a more modern looking Alvis. Take a look at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTAXYr-InW0
I would be curious to know what Prince Charles thought of the Lagonda compared with the Alvis.

Sold today for ?340,000 with b.p., a world record for a 3.0 litre dhc. Great news that it sold. to the USA, bound for a private collection..David20 April 2016 at 16:04 #51874
I wonder how H&H came to their estimate, so much higher than precedent. The previous owner seems to have done very well from his choice collectionSRD20 April 2016 at 16:09 #51875
H & H had no idea what to ask for this car so I have been told, 40 years with the last owner who looked after it very well.
Last year a 3.0 litre dhc was sold for ?150,000, which was I thought was good.
There was also a ratty looking 3.0 litre saloon which made ?19,000 plus b.p. ..
The previous owner had a wonderful collection – fully agree with that…
