The Austin Princess was a luxury 2-ton limousine launched in 1947, when it was the most expensive flagship in the Austin range. Its high quality finish included leather seats, fine carpeting and burred walnut dashboard and door cappings. Given its luxurious feel, the Princess fitted the bill not only as a luxury wedding car but also a hearse. Only the third release off the new tooling, Oxford's latest 1:43 scale Austin Princess hearse is registered KCP 262G. The model features a dramatic silver grey/black colour scheme with contrasting silver masking to window frames, radiator grille, bumpers and wheel inserts. A special detail to note is the metal framework roof, which would be used to hold wreaths and flowers, perhaps. Internally, the dashboard is brown. The front seats, steering wheel, carpet and door cappings are all black. The rear detail includes the layout needed for transporting the coffin with load bed, door cappings, floor and carpets finished in brown, whilst the rear seats and side panels are black. A final detail, rounding off this fine replica is the Princess marque reproduced above the number plate on the front and below the number plate on the rear.
