1966 Austin vanden plas princess leather

1966 Vanden Plas Princess 4-litre Ris a rare and interesting 6-cyl Rolls Royce powered car---original 77k miles---green with beige upholstery---glass is all good—original European plates---good straight chrome---needs restoration--- was running 3 years ago & should still run

The only non-Rolls Royce car ever to be powered by one of the firm’s engines, original RHD examples like this one must be especially scarce.

Have original bill of lading & US customs papers from when it was shipped to Hollywood, California

Storage since ’89---The 2,9 liter BMC C-series six-cylinder Rolls Royce powered 4-litre R---was running 3 years ago & should still run

This car is straight, clean, California car and complete, nice straight outside brightwork---needs restoration of interior---the leather upholstery is shot---needs re-upholstered & the Walnut veneers need re-finishing ---the picnic table backs were standard on 4-liter R models,---tires are recent

The Rolls - BMC, the FB60 was a 3.9 liter, short stroke, all aluminum design of 450 pounds and 175 HP and 177 lb. ft. of torque. These were very impressive numbers for a saloon of this size during the day, eclipsing its standard BMC powered predecessor’s output by at least 55 HP. ---Quiet, smooth and powerful in Rolls tradition,

Perfect for the British car lover. Or restoration hobbyist…sold as is, where is...this is a no-reserve auction...call 323-251-1100 for any info
