I need anything you can tell about my 1965 vanden plas princess. i live =
in iowa, usa. can,t find a thing on it. i bought it to go with my =
spitfire that i have had 15 years. thank you.



The Vanden Plas 1100 was sold in the US and Canada as an MG/Vanden Plas at
BMC agencys along side the MG1100 saloons,  As I remember, these were
available in fourdoor only where as the MG was available in both 2 and
4-door versions.  It was the most deluxe version of the 1100/1300 series
with wood interior trim and picnic tables built into the front seat backs.
Mechanically, it is a big Mini and quite similar to the Austin America and
Morris 1100/1300 that were sold in the US in much larger numbers.

Parts come from Mini Mania in Milpitas, CA and Mini City in New York.
There is a national club and you could contact:  John Quilter at
415-467-7586 in Brisbane, CA for more information. He has an America and
knows all about the club.  I also know of a beautifully restored Vanden
Plas 1100 in Beverly Hills. Do any other listers know any more?  Let us
See you on the Funway!
