Please keep in mind while viewing this information that this vehicle is 50 years old and has never been restored. 1966 Vanden Plas Princess 4-Liter R. The Princess was a joint venture between Rolls Royce and the British Motors Corporation which built these cars between 1964 and 1968. A total of 6. 55 cars were produced and it is my understanding that only 1. 00 with left hand drive made it to the USA. The Princess is the only civilian car to be powered by a Rolls Royce engine other than Rolls Royce and Bentley. The engine is an all aluminum inline 6 cylinder model FB60 equipped with twin SU carburetors. followed by a model 8 Borg Warner 3-speed automatic transmission. and I have read that with this drive train the Princess would cruise best at 90 MPH (it has a 140MPH speedometer). The current owner purchased this Princess 24 years ago from a friend. and it was in immaculate condition in both looks and drivability (the Missouri title will verify the purchase date). The car was immediately parked in the garage. and has not moved or saw the light of day since.  The car currently has 44. 74 actual miles. The car still wears it's original factory paint and may have 3 or 4 door very minor dings. One reason the paint has survived so well over the years is because it had a "Ming" procedure done when it was new (see sticker in right wing window). The car is very solid. rust free. and has never been involved in any accidents. The chrome trim is also very nice. The windshield has a vertical crack on the passenger side. but all of the other glass is excellent with no discoloration. Overall the interior is also very nice. the leather seats and the door panels are very nice. the carpets have always been covered and look new. The laminated Birdseye maple on the dash. the Burl  walnut on the doors and fold down picnic tables in the back are starting to show age and the laminate is cracking. nbsp;this cars condition deserves to have this wood refurbished.  This is a 100% original. complete car also including the factory workshop manual. drivers handbook. both tool kits. and even the original Vanden Plas key ring with serial numbered original keys.  All of the lamps and lenses are still the original Lucas brand and are in excellent condition. Due to the long term storage the car is currently not drivable. the engine is free and will turn over. It was parked with fuel in the tank. so the fuel tank will need to be cleaned along with the fuel lines and I am sure the twin carbs will need a rebuild. The brakes are front disc and rear drum and still have a pedal. but with pressure applied go to the floor. nbsp;the brakes will also need attention. The tires appear to be near new (Firestone 721's) . but they are at least 24 years old and will need to be replaced.   If you are a Prime Minister. nbsp;a Hollywood celebrity. or just a regular guy wanting to own the very first Vanden Plas Princess Limousine in your neighborhood. and have the funds to purchase. the ability to do a very minimal restoration. then this may be the one you have been looking for. Good Missouri title. in owners name and car will be transferred when payment in full has been made. I have tried to describe this car to the best of my ability. but probably missed something that you would like to know. if so just ask. If you would like to inspect this car in person prior to the end of the auction. again just ask and arrangements will be made. Since this car will need to be transported to it's new home. the buyer will be responsible for all related transportation costs. Help loading or assisting the transporter can be provided on this end if needed.  Thanks for looking. have a great day. and good luck in the bidding.  This is really a nice vehicle in amazing condition!!

from Gillian Gardner, dated 16 july 2019
Why does this car, that should have NO hood ornament, have a VAUXHALL Flying lady mascot on a VanDen Plas. This car never had a hood ornament.
