After just six month into the production the three brands, Austin, Morris and Wolseley, were dismissed for this model and the Princess brand resurfaced once again in the autumn of 1975.

Agreed, but the public and journalists alike labelled it the 'Austin' Princess through its life. In fact, the Top Gear presenter introduced the car as Austin Princess.

Journalists ... [:kiki] ... with them the 'Princess' brand has just a hard standing like the US brands 'Continental' or 'Edsel'.

Perhaps the Top Gear people should seek advice from us before going on air! :D

I think it's probably the car dealership that would be 'responsible' for informing the DVLA of Make and Model details at time of the first registration.

The DVLA would only question it if the data would not be accepted by the system, so Leyland, Austin, Morris, Austin-Morris are possible and I guess 'Princess' also as a make is possible.

Although this is a 1994CC, it was named Princess 1800. Perhaps the engine was changed in the Hearse conversion
