1952 Lagonda series one Drop Head Coupe 2.6 litre, dark blue with grey leather interior and black mohair soft top. This Lagonda was purchased by a Mr Charlie Willment on the 1st January 1953; amazingly he owned the car until the late 80’s when he sold it to Mr Dennis Pearce. In 2004 it was sold to Yvonne (Mollie) Pipe and it has remained in her family since. Mrs Pipe had earlier formed her own Aston Martin Lagonda workshop. In April 2005 Mollie and the car attended The Royal Windsor St. George's Day, Festival of Aston Martin; there is a photo of the car with the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. In September that year the car won 1st in class at the Kingston Lacey Aston Martin Concours. There is an AMOC badge for this and it was also in the monthly magazine. In June 2009 it participated in the 21st Anniversary London-Brighton Classic Car Run. In 2010 Southern Classics (Sunbury on Thames) refurbished the bodywork and repainted it in the colour it is today, the chrome work was also re-done. The paintwork and chrome are absolutely first class throughout. Then in 2012 the Lagonda went to D Class to have the interior re-trimmed throughout and a new hood and tonneau cover made. They also refurbished all of the woodwork, door cards, and made a new hood frame, again first class workmanship throughout. This very rare car remains in wonderful condition and is very pleasurable to drive. It has a large history file including the original buff log book and owners manual, photos of restoration work and pictures of the car at various events. Many old mot’s and receipts are also included some dating right back to its early days. With the price of early Aston Martin’s increasing hugely on a daily basis this rare Lagonda will undoubtedly be a good investment for the future.
