1967 Vanden Plas Princess 4 Litre R

The Princess R was launched at the London Motor Show and was in production for four years with around 6555 built. This car was the only mass-produced civilian vehicle ever to use a Rolls-Royce engine with the beautiful running six cylinder 4 litre engine. The Vanden Plas Princess R appeals to such a wide range of enthusiasts and offers great value when considering the reliability, performance, ride, handling, luxury and comfort of this fabulous car.

This example drives exceptionally well with a lovely smooth engine and gear change. We sold it to a customer in York in 2010 and since then has had regular use. The car is perfectly useable and was driven to us with current MOT test. Once we sell the car, it will be re-tested, freshly serviced and ready to be enjoyed.

LJU 750E is a good useable example that can be improved in areas. The car is reliable, drives well and does not require any major mechanical work. The car presents well but on close inspection does have some minor paint blemishes. The paintwork is generally quite old and whilst it still has deep shine, there are odd marks and blemishes. The Vanden Plas has had some re-chroming work in the past few years and has participated in some local shows before originally coming to us in 2010. The interior retains the original leather seats that do have some splits but are still serviceable. The headlining is intact but aged, front carpets original, rear carpets are not original.

This is an ideal car for regular use or can be improved, detailed and used for shows and rallies.
