Anyone seen a Princess Sherpa recently?
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
