Vanden Plas Princess 1300 (1970)

Postby RR77 » Thu Aug 09, 2007 9:51 am

I was the lucky winner of the recent eBay auction for TRU 430J (Trudy). I collected her yesterday afternoon from her owner Colin and now look forward to some hopefully very comfortable fairly trouble free driving! Thanks to Bryan for being at the end of the phone to confirm the car in front of me was the one in his records - a Blue Royale automatic with optional heated rear windscreen. The car seems to be in good shape and fairly recently restored but came with little paper work history other than for the period 1978 - 90. I shall do a DVLA trawl but if anyone else recalls her I'm interested to know more. From the badges on the car she appears to be affiliated with both the VPOC badge on and the 1100 club. I hope to see some of you soon, (so sorry I can't make the Kingsbury day on the 16th due to a prior engagement).

Certainly. The portrait format one is probably best for a cover. Download it from the forum as they are high res images. Please credit the photograph to "Richard Reynolds. GoodatMagic.com" Thanks.

AIMS OF THE CLUB

 

a) Generally to help and encourage members to maintain these fine cars in good running order and appearance.


b) To organise rallies and meetings nationwide, and to field an annual Show Day. Members can compete at these events for trophies, these being awarded for the best cars in restoration, and most used classes.

c) To offer technical advice to those people seeking help. We also help those not wishing to carry out their own repairs, as some of our members are motor engineers and specialise in the various models within the club.


d) Spares are offered for sale through the club magazine, and several of our members have stocks of spares for sale.
