1934 M45 Team Car by Fox & Nicholl For Sale

In 1934, a team of three 4.5 litre Lagondas was prepared for competition by Fox and Nicholl. These were among the fastest British sports cars of the era and competed very successfully, culminating in victory in the Le Mans 24 hour race in 1935. They also looked particularly attractive, arguably more so than the later LG45 team cars. This car is an accurate replica, mirroring the original black team car, BPK201. It has been constructed by the finest specialists, using a 1934 Lagonda as an appropriate basis. The Lagonda Club registrar – a key expert who has written a number of authoritative books on the marque – writes of this vehicle: ‘….. the replacement body is an exact replica of the Lagonda factory team cars operated at one time by Fox and Nicholl.’ The body was expertly constructed by I. P. Pitney. This family business is exceptionally experienced in coachbuilding work on Lagondas – particularly through commissions from the late Peter Whenman and from Bishop Gray – and is of very good quality. The car has the correct 10ft 3ins wheel base and the 4.5 litre mechanics have been meticulously restored. It has the correct Girling brakes, the best Lagonda clutch and benefits from an excellent, restored synchromesh Alvis gear box of the appropriate period. Steering parts have been crack tested, the rear axle has been restored, new wiring has been installed, the wheels have been restored and there is a new radiator core and 20 gallon petrol tank. Ancillaries, including the magneto, dynamo, distributor, starter motor etc have all been restored by specialists. The carbs were sourced from the estate of the previous owner of an original LG45 team car and are believed to have once been fitted to this vehicle. In addition, the vehicle looks superb, and has been used with care by its owner. It was awarded Best in Show at a recent large event in the county, competing with a wide range of well-presented vintage and post-vintage cars. Sir Stirling Moss admired the vehicle at the Prescott Hill Climb and has signed the aluminium dashboard – which is of the correct pattern. The paint, by Vintage Coachwork at Clanfield, is of excellent quality – and all of the chrome has been re-plated effectively. The upholstery has been crafted by Gary Wright of Milton Keynes, who has extensive experience with Lagondas – so the trim is correct for the vehicle. The engine has been totally restored by experts, and has only covered about 2,000 miles since the work was carried out. Formhalls Vintage and Racing Ltd undertook work on the bottom end and the white metalling is in Hoyt material with a lifetime guarantee. Ronin Engineering of Derby carried out the remainder of the engine rebuild, and did this with great expertise and care – reflecting their wide experience with vintage and post-vintage car engineering. The engine block was renewed and there are new pistons, timing chains, a restored fast-road camshaft and new steel rods. Indeed, all engine components have been checked and restored/replaced as necessary. No expense has been spared. Overall, this is an exceptional car which is driving very well indeed and is ready to be enjoyed. It is available very reluctantly from its current owner.
