Although registered in 1939 the car originally built in 1938 according to the records held with the Lagonda club. The car is fitted with the Meadow engine 4.5 Litre that delivered for the age of the car a very generous 180 hp. The Lagonda LG6 originally arrived onto the market in 1937 and was capable of going from 7 to 105 mph in top gear and rev to 5,000 rpm.
In total only 82 LG6 were produced of which around 50 are documented by the Lagonda Club today. This car was originally registered as FYF 6 which was a London issued plate which was later replaced to BTB 823 in 1972. The plate that the car is fitted with today, HJC 50, was fitted in 1975 by the then owner Harold J Collins. In 1976 Harold sold the car to Emery Gottschall of De Plaines, Illinois however in 1982 the car returned to its former keeper Harold.
