A Remarkable RestorationOriginally, this Lagonda M45R started as a pillarless saloon. However, in 1987, due to its deteriorating condition, it underwent a remarkable transformation into the 'Le Mans' body style. The restoration and rebuilding work was entrusted to the late Peter Whenman, a Lagonda specialist at Vintage Coachworks in England. Whenman expertly handled the chassis and bodywork, while Julian Messent, the founder and owner of HCS, took charge of the mechanical aspects.The 'Le Mans' body, crafted by Pitney Coachbuilding (UK), has been meticulously maintained and boasts a striking black finish that beautifully complements the car's appearance. Inside, you'll find well-preserved blue leather upholstery, and the brushed aluminum dash housing the gauges adds a touch of sophistication. Additionally, there's a separate backseat providing ample space for either passengers or luggage.
