Austin Se7en Deluxe, Vanden Plas Mini of Lord Austin’s Daughter Irene Austin, Princess Blue-Grey Metallic.
The Austin Seven modelled was built at Longbridge on April 11th 1960 as a special order for Irene Waite, née Austin, eldest daughter of Lord Herbert Austin. It was fitted with a fresh-air heater, which at that time was for export market orders only. On April 28th it was sent to another section of the BMC empire, coachbuilder Vanden Plas in Kingsbury to be painted metallic blue over the original white, trimmed in VM3230 grey hide and Evlan Birstall VDP C2 grey carpet. This was done to match the Vanden Plas Princess IV DS7 A135 Limousine owned by Irene's husband, Arthur Waite, a BMC director who'd joined his father-in-law's company after the Great War.
