1904 Lagonda Tricar.

£130,000

car description

The Earliest known Lagonda to exist!!! Engine number 108 Registration number OI 266 Regular London to Brighton Veteran runner. A superb find & with a massive provenance. This machine comes to us with a massive history file & documentation dating back to 1936. The car is VCC dated & also has a letter from Lagonda themselves dated 1938 confirming it to be of 1904 Origin. The car is in excellent overall condition & comes with numerous bills for engine work & restoration over the years. Major recent works have been done by F.J. Payne engineering including fitting new pistons & valves etc. The car when discovered was owned for close to 40 years by a pair of brothers who were its able custodian & indeed ran it in the 1938 London to Brighton run & subsequently on many other runs. The tricycle is in superb running order & exhibit an alarming turn of speed when pushed hard. This coupled with unfamiliar controls lead me to suggest prudence being the better part of valor when familiarizing oneself with the machine. Indeed a contemporary of the brothers writes in 1936 of achieving 55MPH flat out on his example & lapping Brooklands racing circuit at a timed 32MPH. Those were the days!!! Clearly
