Secret location nearby, in for a stereo install.
Been a year, and my brain didn’t retain the model name. But I did retain the memory of the sweet old English car aroma. It’s the one on the right 🙂
Oh btw, the plan is a FrankenAustin resto. Not me, my crazy neighbour.
Last summer I found these beauties. Way back in the 80s I almost bought, well I test drove and looked at, similar station wagon (safari). That one was way too rusty and I was a poor student with no need or skill to manage a DS21 estate. But here we have a lovely pair, someone’s dream sitting in the open.
Might see the owner in the next day or so and I can get some info.
Update, talked to owner.
(Yes I missed the badge on the driver’s side)
It’s a W-71. Somewhat rare, certainly rare here on the island. This one came off a farm, has the extended cab for sleeper. Cab interior pretty rough but restorable.
Whilst visiting the powder coating shop I espied this on the counter.
Looks like the valve cover from one bank of dohc V8. Did AM use the name lagonda on their engines in any models other than the wedgie Lagonda?
Well this site should explain, http://www.lagondaclub.com/cars/lagonda-v8/
