The Earliest known Lagonda to exist!!!
Vintage and Prestige Fine Motor Cars are proud to be offering this 1904 Lagonda Tricar for sale. This is a regular ‘London to Brighton’ Veteran runner. A superb find and with a large provenance.
This Lagonda Tricar comes to us with an extensive history file and documentation dating back to 1936. The Lagonda Tricar is ‘VCC’ dated and also has a letter from Lagonda themselves, dated 1938, confirming it to be of 1904 Origin. The Lagonda Tricar is in excellent overall condition and comes with numerous bills for engine work and restoration work over the years.
Major recent works have been carried out by done by F.J. Payne engineering including fitting new pistons and valves. The Lagonda Tricar, when discovered was owned for close to forty years by a pair of brothers who were its custodians and indeed, ran it in the 1938 ‘London to Brighton’ run and subsequently on many other runs.
The Lagonda tricycle is in superb running order and exhibits an alarming turn of speed when pushed hard. This coupled with unfamiliar controls lead us to suggest prudence being the better part of valor when familiarizing oneself with the machine. Indeed a contemporary of the brothers writes in 1936 of achieving 55MPH flat out on his example and lapping Brooklands racing circuit at a timed 32MPH. Those were the days!!!
Clearly of museum quality, this contraption is also of course London to Brighton certified for those wishing to brave the elements on a run.
