This Lagonda saloon was supplied new via HWM in 1984 to the immediately preceding owner's company, F Drake of Golcar Ltd (also known as F Drake [Fibres] Ltd) for his personal use and in 1997 was transferred into his private ownership. The car was serviced regularly by a local garage and always taxed/insured, and had covered only 28,500-or-so miles from new when it was offered for sale at Bonhams' Goodwood Festival of Speed auction in July 2011 (Lot 497). Purchased there by the current vendor, an electronics engineer with 35 years automotive experience, it has benefited from extensive refurbishment while in his ownership and is described by him as in good condition, driving well. Particular attention has been paid to ensuring that the electrics work properly and are reliable (see four-page checklist on file) while the original stereo has been restored by a retired Blaupunkt service engineer and fitted with an aux/iPod input. In addition, the interior leather has been treated to a 'light touch' renovation; the woodwork restored by specialists PK Veneering of Crewe; over-mats and a new boot carpet fitted; the wheels blast-cleaned and power-coated; and the exhaust system overhauled and fitted with new manifolds. A list of all works carried out may be found in the history file (close inspection recommended). Also included in the sale is the complete tool kit with unused and unopened first aid kit; Lagonda owner's handbook including supplements; operating, installation and service manual for the Blaupunkt New York stereo; and the service booklet (two stamps). Accompanying documentation consists of (copy) build sheet, warranty, sundry invoices, current MoT, V5C registration document and a quantity of expired tax discs and MoT certifica
