For sale is my beloved, original 1981 Austin Morris Princess 1700HL. The car has been recently recommissioned after being stored in a garage for many years. It had been in the same family from 1983 to 2017 before I acquired the car, and has just over 100,000 miles on the clock. It has an MOT until December 2018 and is currently on SORN.
It is a very solid car with very little bodywork ever being done. The paintwork is original and is very presentable, but after nearly 40 years it has some blemishes. Underneath the car is solid, and any inspection is welcome. There are some areas of surface rust like on the bottom of the rear doors, but they don't distract from the overall appearance of the car.
The interior is complete and overall in good condition, and all the electrics work. The carpets and top of the rear seat have wear which is typical of its age.
The engine is quiet and has had a new cambelt. It has had all new brake hoses, replacement GT3 Goodyear tyres in excellent condition, replacement exhaust and radiator. We replaced the clutch which gave me an ideal opportunity to clean the engine bay as well.
I'm very upset to see it go, unfortunately only selling due to losing storage and it would be unfair to have the car stand outside. I will only let the car go to a good home. To find a Princess this original condition I feel is a rarity, it now needs to be taken up to its next level to become a fine classic.
