VANDEN PLAS PRINCESS 1500
4-door 4-seater saloon.
By no means as pleasant a car as the Princess 1300, this was the tarted-up Allegro foisted on the middle classes by Lord Stokes' team. Like the Allegro, had Hydragas suspension, bulbous style, and in this guise - transverse Maxi-style overhead cam engines and five gears. Not a great car, by any means, though no-one was complaining about furnishings. Most were built in London, but assembly moved to Abingdon in late '79; 1750s were all later models.
