The LG 6 is the, (by W.O. Bentley) more refined model which benefitted from many improvements as synchromesh gears in the gearbox, centralised chassis lubrication and a cross braced chassis similar to the V12 cars. These 6 cilinder cars were capable of around 100 mph (160 km/h)! Chassis 12319 Engine nr LG6/459/S4, is a 4.5 litre 6 cilinder (Sanction 4 Meadows engine) Lagonda LG6 DHC and first owned by a Mr Bloom, London UK (history courtesy of the Lagonda Club UK). It is possible that a Mr John Rees of Bindon Abbey, Dorset owned the car after him. From 1974-1978 the car was owned by Mr Stuart Metcalfe, Surrey. In april 1989 Mr Metcalfe rejoined the Lagonda Club. In 1995 the car was for sale at Brook's London Motor show auction as a barn find, complete and original but in poor condition. It was bought by Mr Hood of California USA. He had the car shipped to John Swaisland, who embarked on its total restoration. He finished restoration 4 years later in 1999. In 2000 the car received the Chairman's choice award at the Palos Verdes Concours and achieved a 3rd in class in 2001. In 2003 the car was acquired at Bonhams Pebble Beach auction by the current Dutch owner with 46 mls on clock! It has been used on several occasions and rallies but mileage is still only 1400 mls. Superbly presented (although it has a small dent to the rear which requires fixing, with which we can assist) in two tone blue with grey leather to the interior. It is Dutch (EC) registered but also has its old English number plate 'GPH 926'. The car runs and drives beautifully. The car has twin side mounted spare wheel compartments of which the left one has the lubrication lever and a complete set of tools! Further history and information is currently being traced. A rare opportunity to buy a superb car at an attractive price well below restoration costs.
