The Austin Princess A120 was launched as the most expensive flagship model in the Austin range at the same time as the A110 Austin Sheerline (designed during the war). The A110 produced 10 less horsepower being fitted with a single carburettor. The Princess (model code A120) featured a body by the coachbuilder Vanden Plas and was a large saloon or limousine. It was offered with two distinct interiors. The “DM” or limousine type had a sliding glass partition between the driver and rear passengers plus picnic tables, and the “DS” was the saloon.
