History of the Austin Vanden Plas Princess
Vanden Plas was a company of coachbuilders that made bodies for specialist and up-market automobile manufacturers. Later on the name itself became a top-end luxury model designation for cars from various subsidiaries of British Leyland and the Rover Group.
Post-war in 1945 Vanden Plas was looking to restart its old business when Austin came along, wanting to market a chauffeur-driven version of its large 4-litre A110 Sheerline luxury car. Vanden Plas then became a subsidiary of the Austin Motor Company in 1946 and produced Austin's A120 Princess model on the Austin Sheerline chassis.
From 1958 this also began to involve chassis assembly and the Austin (now BMC) board recognised Vanden Plas as a motor manufacturer in its own right dropping Austin from the name so the Princess could be sold by Nuffield dealers. In 1960 the Princess became the Vanden Plas Princess.
