Thread: Princess 2200 HLS

    Princess 2200 HLS








    Some views of the Princess, the first 5 of a 1976 model, the last of my own 1977. model. A very nice looking, luxurious car, coupled with technology of English reliability. A bit slow due to the 3-speed automatic.

    Nice technology though, with a transversely mounted straight-6 of 2.2 litre, with the gearbox to the rear of the engine, driven by a specially designed, very wide chain.

    you did not smile when you wrote that, did you?

    BTW thanks for the contribution, but can I ask you to use the attachment system for the pictures?

    After ending up with a crack in both the block as well as the cylinder head, no...

    Sorry, but I don't know how the attachement systems work, and don't have time to find out. When posting on various different forums, it is easiest to only upload pictures in one way.

    Of course easiest is still when making my own websites...

    When you make a post, not quick reply though, if you scroll down just a bit under where it says 'submit reply', you'll find a Manage Attachments button.

    If you click that, you just have to upload the images and then hit submit. It takes no more than a minute, and the pictures will be there forever rather than disappear like inline images usually do.

    Chain drive certainly a novel way to get power to the rear, is the 2.2 straight 6 a Leyland engine ?

    to the rear of the engine, not the rear of the car, it is front wheel drive...
