Details Specification Condition Report

In recent years this car has formed part of a large collection and as such has received little or no use and an element of recommissioning is to be expected to return it to the road once again. Your inspection pre-sale is welcomed and encouraged to appreciate the potential of this rarely offered motor car which is strictly sold as seen.

  • The Princess-R was the result of a BMC/Rolls-Royce joint venture in the early 1960s exploring the possibility of creating a smaller Rolls-Royce motorcar
  • The result was a modified Farina A110 bodyshell fitted with a Rolls-Royce FB60, 3909cc six-cylinder engine 
  • For the first time on a British car, Borg-Warner Type D8 automatic transmission was fitted as standard 
  • This example is finished in Sherwood Green over cream with Sage Green leather
  • From our consignor " Has a lovely story in its history confirming chap's father and mother had the car for most of his life, driven by their chauffeur after dad’s passing and then he had it in his own garage after that for years, all to confirm that the 43,000 miles are likely to be accurate"
