Princess cars were built by British Leyland between 1975 and 1981. It was then replaced by the Austin Ambassador which lasted until 1984. They are often referred to as the Austin Princess, but this name was only ever used in New Zealand.
Indeed, it became well-known that the Princess suffered from reliability issues and sales suffered as a consequence, despite a promising start in the mid 70's.
This picture features a British Leyland Princess 2 HL from 1979. The Princess 2 was built between 1977 and 1981.
