|Princess 3-Litre Mk 2|
SECOND only to the stately 4-litre Princess, this is B.M.C.'s top prestige car.
The body-chassis unit is uniform with Austin's and Wolseley's sixes, but the V.P. 3-litre is cock of the range as far as luxury is concerned. Testifying to the makers' cost-no-object thinking are such features as fine hide upholstery, burr walnut door cappings and dash, exceptionally deep seat squabs, and duplicated speakers for the optional radio. Standard transmission comprises a three-speed all-synchromesh gearbox in conjunction with self-operating overdrive, but a fully automatic system can be specified. Imposingly in keeping with their V.I.P.-wafting role, the 4-litre Princess, a saloon and a limousine, are large and sumptuous cars selling at surprisingly sub-V.I.P. prices. Out of the general B.M.C. character, they retain separate bodies and chassis. Engine capacity: 2,912 c.c. Brake Horse Power: 120 at 4,850 r.p.m. Wheelbase: 9 ft. 2 in. Prices: 4-Litre Saloon £2,957.5.3 incl. PT., 3-Litre Saloon £1,532.15.3 incl. PT.
