LAGONDA LG45 Rapide - FOR SALE

It is one of only 24 now existing and one of only 25 ever built.

Chassis 12203/R was delivered new to the USA through “English Motor Cars Ltd” of 57th Street, New York and sold to Colonel Porter Adams who after a distinguished military career took the position of President of Norwich University in Vermont, and it was here that he took delivery of the car in October 1937. The records show that the car’s paintwork was green and had matching leather. The weather equipment was fawn and the woodwork polished walnut.

The car returned to the UK in 1982 and eventually passed into the care of notable collector, Hugh Taylor. Memorably he competed with it in the 1990 Mille Miglia and he kept it until 1995 when he part exchanged it against an Alfa Monza with the Canadian enthusiast David Cohen. The car was back in the USA in 1995 and had two well-known owners in Henry Petronis and John Feiber. By 2012 it was once more back in the U.K.

It has recently undergone a lot of mechanical work. Front & rear axle, brakes, gearbox, engine, wiring, new wheels, tyres etc. and is now ready to go.
