Austin A135 Princess. The model was eventually replaced by the new Princess IV in 1956 which sold as a Vanden Plas from 1957.

I once found a beautyful hearse version in Northern Ireland, but a banger racer beat me to buy it by literally minutes. I could have killed him for the license plate alone! You can see photos of that car on my website:

It's a Vanden Plas Princess, not an Austin A135 (no "A" hood-ornament).

Not easy to judge, but I tend to unmask it as being made by Alpe & Saunders.

I have the pleasure to say I drove this car once about 1978/9. A motor trade pal of mine bought it. He w as goingt o loan it to me for a night, but when my mum found out, she threatened to throw me out as she didn't wan't a funeral car outside our Moxley council house.

So it never happened. Sad eh.

TLH 858 was London Nov 56 to Nov 57 "allocated in blocks". So plain Princess - after Austin, before VdP.

Neighbours and relatives get used to it after a while. ;) You're English - just call it "eccentric" and everyone will love it (bc. people are sheep).

Unfortunately, eccentric only applies if you're posh, the term nutter was coined for the rest of us plebs.

I go to the chip shop in my Bentley. (Well not recently but I shall again after the great rebuild.)

Is that eccentric or just odd? Also, I had a friend who used to cartop a Mirror Dinghy on an Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire, at least I tow my boat. Hearses are good for sailboards and surfing, just ask the beach boys.

Eccentric = posh
Crank = common

Works for most types of definitions - engineering or otherwise.
