Princess Century Supreme

 

This 1976 Princess 2200HL started life as a rally support and promotional car for independent oil company Century Oils. After a few years it started to look a bit tired so Century decided to have the Wedge customised in a bid to show something a little more unusual.

 

Work started in September 1979 and by November the car was completed. Essentially all of the customisation was centred on the bodywork, most of which you can see in the pictures. The door handles were removed and remote solenoids operate the catches, and the rear sets were removed to increase load capacity whilst racing seats were added up front. There were no mechanical changes, despite the huge ramp on the bonnet suggesting otherwise. This car featured in the May 1980 edition of Custom Car magazine.

 

Does anyone have information about what happened to this car?
