Lost Lagonda to star in Wiltshire

| 17 Oct 2012

A 1933 3-litre Lagonda saloon that has lain dormant since 1961 is expected to make £30-35,000 at Richard Edmonds’ Castle Combe sale from 26-27 October.

Said to be highly original, the car was rediscovered six months ago; it features a seven-bearing six-cylinder engine, with magneto ignition and twin carburettors. The same machine had recently sold at Brightwells.

It will be joined by a 1933 Riley Nine Monaco saloon. Nicknamed ‘The Wonder Car’ it was designed by Stanley and Percy Riley in 1925, and features hemispherical combustion chambers. It carries a guide price of £8500-10,000.

Meanwhile, a 1937 Austin 10 Cambridge, estimated at £3-4000, could be a great entry-level classic buy.

Mixed in with the cars are trucks (such as the 1943 AEC Bowser Tanker we featured), classic bikes and tractors. To view the full lot list, click here.
