Austin Princess IV
1956-1959, 200 produced.
Saloon,4 doors,4 seats
Launched in the 1956 the Princess IV was the last in the well regarded big Austin / Vanden Plas Princess range. As with the earlier Princess cars the IV came as either a Sports Saloon or Touring Limousine and offered the usual appointments and high build quality, most were purchased and used by hire firms or by local councils for "civic duties".
The Princess IV now came equipped with power steering, servo assisted brakes and Hydramitic (automatic) transmission as used on Rolls-Royce models of the period. Production ended in 1959 and was replaced by the much smaller 3 Litre Vanden Plas Princess range. Practical Classics June 2009 - Featuring Buyers Guide Austin Sheerline and Princess.
