Quote by Rich5ltr:
Firstly hello everyone, I have recently joined this forum as I am looking to enter the world of Lagonda ownership...

Like everyone new to a particular marque it's always a difficult knowing where to start but the 16/80 looks attractive to me...
Chaps, following on from my initial post above, having now read much more about these particular cars, and lagonda in general, I notice that they are sometimes referred to as the Lagonda 16/80 S Type Special Six.

Is that the full and correct name of the car or does the "Special" bit suggest there were variants on the theme? Other than the body style - tourer/saloon and cycle wings vs swept wings differences.

Rgds Rich...

Hi Richard;
According to Davey and May's book, the factory decided to call the 16/80 the "Special Six". The chassis and engine numbers are prefixed with an "S", probably explaining the term "S type". So no, it doesn't indicate a special version of the model. Nice cars, but I'm of course prejudiced!

Just stumbled across this thread again while searching for something else on Google. Yes I did eventually purchase a 16/80 but not this one.. Grinning
