Appearing in 1934, the Rapier was Lagonda's quality small car aimed at the
highly popular 1100cc sector of the market. Featuring an all-new 1104cc
engine with twin overhead camshafts developing an impressive 50 bhp, this
new model was available with a variety of coachwork styles, a large
proportion of cars having bodies by E.D. Abbott Ltd of Farnham.
By 1935, however, the Lagonda company failed and was taken over to be
reformed as LG Motors (Staines) Ltd. The rights to manufacture the Rapier
model were sold to a new company - Rapier Cars of Hammersmith Rd, this being
formerly the Lagonda Service Centre. Production of the Rapier as a marque
in its own right was to continue until 1938, however only 46 cars were to be
Presented here is an example of the 1934 Rapier with two seat tourer coachwork. Understood to have originally been an Abbott bodied drophead coupe according to Club records, it was rebodied some years ago. In recent years the car has been the subject of a major restoration from the bare chassis, with enormous amounts spent. There are a number of photographs included with the documentation showing this work under way. Chromework was replated, much electrical work carried out, including a full rewire, whist the engine and preselector gearbox were
apparently dismantled and thoroughly checked.
The hood and sidescreens have also been renewed and the car is of very smart
appearance all round. The vendor is now reducing his collection and a new
home is sought for this attractive small Lagonda.
The car retains its original registration number and a buff RF60 logbook is
included, which dates back to 1956.
