Introduecd as the Austin A135 Princess IV [DS7] in 1956 the name was shortened to Princess IV in 1957. Production ceased in early 1959.
This vehicle sports no 'Flying A' and is therefore a 'Princess IV'.

Met a man in Bremerton, WA who claims to own this very car that was in the film, Man in a Suitcase. You be the judge. I have pics of it on my facebook, I have only posted 3 of them here. Do note that the front license plate number "TLP 100", does match the one in the movie clip images posted above in this chain.--->https://www.facebook.com/rmocaby/media_set?set=a.10203333938042106.1073741888.1020382627&type=1

Sounds like the first line of a lost Springsteen song .... No reason why it shouldn't be the same car?? Good to know it's still alive. DS7 production total under both names was only 200 and the entry in Robson A-Z British Cars 1945-1980 openly asks if any still survive.

LOL... if Springsteen does come out with a song on this one, let's make sure we credit some credit :)
Check this out.... I just noticed that the front license plate, TLP 100, of my pic does match the ones in the movie clip images! I revised my first post. Guessing that would pretty much resolve any doubt as far as I'm concerned.
