Thanks to Rollerman I have now completed the Yesteryear ashtray/pen holder.


He kindly sent me two green seats, so it looks like new!


Thanks Kevin!!

This looks great! I've noticed several like this featuring different vehicles out on E Bay lately.

My pleasure Theo, she looks great, you have a very hard to find version because of the wheel design. These wheels only have the single outer rim and generally classed as the 'Generic' rim.


Now complete again she looks as good as she did when new in 1969.

That is a very nice collection Bob, thanks for showing.
And I really like the fact that you have some boxes too, that is great

Yes it is a nice desktop Rolls Royce collection complete with their gift boxes. Theo the repair job turned up trumps with the replacement seat.

Very interesting collection specially the double end bottle.

I have to remember this blog. Got some great MoY to show off, especially as the 1928 Mercedes-Benz SS last variant came with a top-down.

If you want to collect these they are affordable mint in box.

<p>The Gold/Maroon Lagonda is a very rare version. It is worth in the hundreds. Treasure it.</p>

Re:Yesteryear 1 year, 10 months ago #314

I'm afraid a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Issue 5 in common maroon and gold is not very expensive, probably GBP 30-40 maximum mint and boxed.. Perhaps you were thinking of the issue 1 purple /gold version Nile which fetches around the 3 to 400 mark nowadays.
