Mine was a 1966 Vanden Plas Princess ‘R’ in dark blue with Connolly leather interior, West of England headlining, Walnut dash and door caps, Walnut picnic tables in the seat backs… Rolls Royce B60 inline 6 F-head 3909cc engine 175bhp (but it never felt like that) Borg Warner Model 8 3 speed auto, foot operated dip/beam headlamps, individual left/right fog lamps, heated rear window, Selectaride adjustable electric rear dampers. And significant amounts of filler and fibre glass where the quality BLMC metal had rotted!
Mine was this colour, this is a 1967 (E-reg plate) and mine was LPL 195D. But this one has a dark interior and mine was much lighter. This one has Rostyle wheels and they don’t look right at all.
In the end it was scrapped, I owed someone a favour and they removed the rusting hulk in exchange for the rear-axle and log book. That was removed and fitted into something they were pretending was a missing Austin Healey prototype ISTR. It was so long ago now, over 35 years, I can’t remember exactly what they were trying to fake but they had some mug with too much money who believed they had found English classic car gold and they were going prove the saying about fools and their money. Nothing to do with me and Mrs. FMF stopped hassling me about the wreck on the driveway and I never knew what they really did. Mrs. FMF was saddened when a P5B turned up shortly after. Much less rust but still plenty of tin worm. But she liked travelling in the P5B. It wasn’t rotten in the middle the way the Princess was so the front passenger door didn’t open on the P5B when you went over a bump the way the Princess door did.
