Coach built by Vanden Plas the car is finished in gleaming Masons Black over Old English White and features an immaculate original beige leather interior with burr walnut fittings.
The car can seat four passengers, three in the back and one in the front, with plenty of space for the wedding dress. Access in and out of the car is easy with the wide opening doors.
The DS7 or Princess IV as they are also known, were designed and coach built by Vanden Plas with a Bentley continental style fastback body to rival the coach built Rolls Royce’s or Bentley available at the time. There flowing lines and aristocratic appearance were deemed a styling masterpiece of the day, but demand for the cars was not great due to the high price tag attached to them.
Only 178 of these cars were built between 1956 – 1959 with only a handful remaining to date. This car was the 4th DS7 built and not registered straightaway as it was assigned to the British Diplomatic Corps and was used for official government duties by Prime Minister Harold MacMillan, hence the reason for naming the car Harold.
To this day it still has an intercom and loud speaker system fitted underneath the bonnet and the original silk flag for the crowned portcullis, badge for the Palace of Westminster.
If you are looking for two or more cars then our 1966 Princess Limousine, 1936 Rolls Royce 25/30 or 1932 Rolls Royce Open Tourer are an ideal choice as they are all finished in the same colour scheme.
