Impeccable pedigree - WW2 Fighter pilots racing Lagonda for sale.
A classic car that was sold by a grieving father who believed his swashbuckling RAF pilot to be dead during World War Two, has emerged for sale for £92,000.
The 1931 Lagonda Open Tourer first came into the possession of Wing Commander Paddy Barthropp, during the Second World War, when he swapped it with 400 gallons of 100-octane aviation fuel he had 'liberated' from RAF Hawkinge.
In the early 1940s, whilst flying on missions over Germany and France, he was shot down and imprisoned with in Colditz Castle.
His father, not hearing from him for some time, assumed he'd been killed and sold the car on his behalf.
