At its announcement in 1953, Lagonda's new 3 Litre model was only available in two-door Convertible and Saloon guise, but a four-door Saloon similar to that of the previous 2.6 Litre followed the following year; as did a MKII specification that included floor-mounted gearchange. Production of the convertible ceased in 1957 and that of the Saloon in 1958, by which time just 270 3-litres had been made. The 1957 3-litre Saloon has remained in dry storage and has been unused for over 20 years, and was in the care of its previous keeper for no less than 56 years. First registered in Croydon and finished in Black with Blue hide trim, the Lagonda is understandably now in need of a degree of recommissioning before it takes to the road once more. It comes complete with V5C, original owners' handbook and buff log book, and currently displays an unwarranted 36,100 miles.
