If so, this should be in VDP UK...However, the scenery is decidedly French or Belgian, and the lines of the car do not match with the VDP UK productions of the time.

Hi, Rob,

we know VdP as a 'family' with residents in UK/F/B. The planing/building is UK-made. Maybe, the final work for an European customer was finished in B ..., ... but, only for UK is noticed Princess-orders ...,

... with greetings, Frank. ;)

Yes Frank, difficult, and not always texts with photographs in books or magazins are true. To go with this are productions of VandenPlas A135 by VandenPlas UK, which to my mind transmit a different inspiration from the car shown here before.
