Stunning and Rare 1936 Lagonda LG45 Tourer

This 1936 Lagonda LG45 Tourer is an extremely exciting find just out of a museum collection where it has resided for the last 30 years. Sporting a gorgeous body and with patina in all the right places. It seems that the LG45 is as it was delivered new, even to the degree of having been preserved rather than restored in some respects, the rear bench seat seems likely to be the original as do the door panels, and the 'fawn twill' top mentioned in the factory records matches that which it still wears today, so may well be the original. At some point, the paintwork was redone in a more striking Aston Martin style metallic green, and the front seats appear to have been reupholstered. The car would likely benefit from mechanical re-commissioning at this time as it was last running a few years ago. 
 
Long established British Midlands region dealers Patrick Motors ordered car 12112 from Lagonda on May 19, 1936, and they were clearly in need of the car soonest, as the records state 'Very Urgent'! 5 weeks later, on June 27, it was delivered to them in an understated scheme of Dark Grey Exterior, with its top and tonneau covers in fawn twill. The upholstery color is listed as Green reference LG16. The wood trim was of matt walnut and two suitcases were supplied with the Lagonda. Even though its engine number is quoted as LG45/224/S2, the same that it retains to this day, there is an annotation that actually states a Series 1 Engine. Other details on the build sheets include notes of a Bluemels steering wheel, Smiths instrumentation, Wilmot Breeden Bumpers, Vertex magnetos, twin gas fillers and luggage carried fitted on the trunk lid.
