1957 Austin Princess VandenPlas
The original engines are costly to rebuild and not very reliable. That is probably why this one has a Ford 6 and transmission. Nothing wrong with that as driving a car like this needs to be driver friendly and it seems to be the perfect fit. Honestly no one would know the difference until the hood was opened.
The interior is pretty impressive with the wood and leather interior. This car seems to be all original including the headliner. The leather is probably useable if not dried out. The driver’s window “Right Hand” is totally cool! It is a vacuum lever that opens and closes the window very fast with little to no effort!
Most of these are pretty rusty! This one seems to be a solid car. Be prepared to spend some money if this car needs parts or repairs and be patient! Nothing for this car comes quick.
If you are looking for a very cool car that looks like a Bentley, then I am sure this is a great deal.
