Estimated Market Value

Only 3,030 Lanchester LD10's Chassis were allocated in total, of these there were 25 prototype Chassis's allocated but it is unknown how many prototypes were actually built or had Bodies fitted.  Then approximately 95% of the first 2,426 chassis (1946 to 1949) were fitted with the all steel 'Utility' body built by Briggs Motor Bodies Ltd. of Dagenham and appoximately 95% of the last 579 chassis (1950 and 1951) were fitted with coach-built bodies built by Barker and Co, at the Radford Works, Coventry. The remaining 5% (or so) were fitted with a range of interesting bodies, including Utility bodies, vans, two door drophead tourers and saloon car bodies built by other coachbuilders.

Other known coachbuilders include:-

    E. D. Abbott of Farnham Hooper & Co of London
    Mumford’s, Abbey Garage, Plymouth Avon Coachworks of Warwick
    B.S.A. H. J. Mulliner & Co.Bedford Park, Chiswick, West London

With relatively few vehicles and even fewer sales, it is difficult to accurately predict the value of the LD10. The following charts show estimated value based on known sales (ie. the price the vehicle was bought for and not the price it was offered for sale at). 'Specials' are not included since the prices fetched are not representative as a whole.

Unfortunately, the recent sales of Barker cars are quite uncontrolled as where the Briggs are on a steady increase in value, which has always been valued a little lower than the Barker body, the majority of vehicles to come onto the market lately have required extensive restoration which makes price predication for the Barker especially difficult.
