Subject: Re: 39 Lagonda V12 short chassis saloon for sale with Bonham's
Dear Stewart,

the body of this car looks far to good to me to destroy it for a special and I think it is not especially the Germans and Belgians who build the V12 specials. I bought mine (deVille Saloon body) 11 years ago at auction (different price level though at that time). I was lucky with my purchase. Nothing bad lurking, but this was luck no proof by restauration papers.

But I am also curious to hear if one of you knows more about things lurking beneath this bonnet

Stewart,

I had seen the car and been informed of its history.

Contacting the club is always a good starting point.

Yep the body wasn't too bad and its nice that someone has been informed of its history ?

There was nothing at all with the car to say what had been done and therefore it was impossible to tell what lurked under the rocker covers . If I were selling particularly an incredibly expensive to repair V12 . Then I would be shouting from the roof tops what had been done and not the opposite . Time will tell.
