1967 VANDEN PLAS 1100 PRINCESS Mk1 MANUAL. ONLY 3 OWNERS AND 32,500 MILES FROM NEW. ORIGINAL AND UNRESTORED CAR. £9995
This is an amazing car in fantastic original and unrestored condition. RLM 290E is a Mk1 Vanden Plas Princess 1100 with manual gearbox. A very rare and collectable model. The car carries chassis number VAS114422 and was first registered 19th April 1967. The first owner in Redhill kept the car for 19 years before selling it to the second owner in Bexhill who in turn kept the car for 28years. After the 2nd owner had passed away the car was sold to the current owner in Brighton 5 years ago. So only 3 owners in 52 years. In all that time the car has covered only 32,500 an remains in original condition. The current owner has re-commissioned the car using as many as the original parts as possible and has traveled 2000 trouble free miles during his 5 year ownership traveling to many shows at which many prizes have been won. The outside of the car is finished in the original colour of Sherwood Green with a hand painted coachline in the correct Ochre colour. The finish is excellent. The chrome is good and due to the fact that the car was waxoil injected from new the car has remained solid and rust free.The underside is excellent and the car retains its original sills and jacking points. There is a Stainless Steel exhaust fitted and the car sits on its original wheels with the correct hub caps and rim embellishers. These are shod with a matching set of Good Year G800 radial tyres. The interior of the car is just as impressive as the outside. The champagne Champagne coloured leather interior is in amazing condition. The matching Wilton carpets and headlining are superb for 52 years old. For an unrestored car the walnut dash, door cappings and rear picnic tables are as good as I have seen with little fading or cracking. There are BMC seat belts fitted, a Smiths electric rear window demister, a Radiomobile 5 push button radio and an electric aerial operated with a manual switch. There is a correct BMC 1100 rubber mat set fitted. In the superb looking boot you will find the spare wheel, jack and a tool rool under the floor and even a fitted wooden handled umbrella. The engine bay is amazing with everything correct and present. The car starts immediately the key is turned and runs/drives superbly. There is an owners manual and service passport book included.
