High bid of £145,000 at 2009 RM Auctions - Automobiles of London. (did not sell)

Sold for $178,750 at 2011 RM Auctions at Monterey.
Chassis number 12334 with UK Registration Number HFO 565 was sent to the original owner on August 24th of 1938 via London dealer University Motors. Ownership passed to P.J.C Endorry in 1957, then to D.S. Vernon in Chichester, and then to US resident Desmond Fitzgerald of Connecticut. It was later in the care of Terence Gooding of Sante Fe. From 1967 through 2005, its owners have been Lagonda Club members.

This 1938 Lagonda LG6 Drophead Coupe is painted in British Racing Green with a beige leather interior and matching convertible top. It was restored many years ago but has aged nicely. The design of the vehicle was handled by Frank Feeley with open coachwork by Lagonda.

In 2008 it was brought to the Automobiles of Amelia presented by RM Auctions where it was estimated to sell for $285,000 - $350,000. It was one of the highlights of the event, though several other cars at the auction brought in over a million each. It is an elegant automobile and possibly one of W.O. Bentley's greatest masterpieces. This gorgeous machine was sold at auction for the sum of $247,500 including buyer's premium.

In 2010, the car was offered for sale at the Sports & Classics of Monterey presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $225,000 - $300,000. Bidding reached $180,000 but failed to satisfy the car's reserve. It would leave the auction unsold.
