Car of the Month : January 2002

Peter Wood’s Princess.



One of the last Princesses, and by this time (1981) the car had just about realised its potential.


Peter’s Princess has been lightly modified, but done so in such a way that it only accentuates the bold Harris Mann design, as opposed to detracting from it. The alloy wheels are from the Triumph Dolomite Sprint/Stag, the bumpers appear to have non-standard overriders on and the rear seats include head rests – something the Princess never – but should have – had. The strident yellow also compliments the car perfectly. Well done, Peter!
