The 'R' in the title of the Vanden Plas Princess 4 Litre R referenced its Rolls‑Royce‑derived 3909cc FB60 all‑aluminium engine of 175bhp, and was in production from 1964 to 1968 as one of BMC's flagship models. This two‑tone Peat over Stone (grey) example, with cream leather interior, is described by  the vendor as a 'very nice car that runs and drives well' and has recently (June 2020) had brakes and brake lines overhauled, a power steering leak repaired and all its fluids renewed at a cost of £5000 with receipts. The car, with only two previous registered keepers, was previously owned by a member of the Vanden Plas Owner s' Club.

The car was registered in the UK in December 1966, but seems to have been initially used abroad for part of its first year, according to the V5C. The odometer now reads 80,445 miles, although this isn't warranted.

The paperwork folder includes the V5C, the bill for the £5000 brake work and service, a 2019 issue of the Vanden Plas Owners' Club magazine, an original BMC marketing brochure, and a genuine BMC workshop manual, as well as an owners' club build and dating certificate.
