More information on this Lagonda:
A pair of crumbling Lagondas could be seen behind some fences in a small Cheshire town in the 1990s. This one dated to the 1950s. Another alloy bodied Lagonda was I think a pre-war example. One of the cars I was told had an original push button gearshift mechanism. I don't know what happened to these two unrestored cars.
This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Lagonda above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular Saloon would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Lagonda Saloon, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the Saloon, and similar old Lagondas, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
