Any­one seen a Princess Sherpa re­cently?

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Your Letters -

Does any­one know what hap­pened to any of the Austin Princess Diesel pro­to­types fit­ted with the 1700cc Sherpa en­gine? The garage I worked for bought four in 1980 – T or V-reg, one in white, an­other in Snap­dragon and two in red. This was BL’s at­tempt to com­pete with the best Derv car ever – the Peu­geot 504. They were truly aw­ful, but I’ve of­ten won­dered whether they got shipped out to end their days in Cyprus or Malta. Peter Hol­l­i­day, Bolton, Lancs
