A term in both French and Italian for a coastal road. the name
'Corniche' was registered by Rolls-Royce in the 1930's yet was only
designated to a production model in 1971 after which time the
Mulliner Park Ward customisations to coupé and convertible Silver
Shadow limousine. took this name. The Coachwork was designed by
John Polwhele Blatchley and is characterised in particular by the
uplifted waistline above the rear wheel-arches. When launched in
1971. the Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible was the most expensive
British car on the market. The introduction of features such as
rack-and-pinion steering. rubber bumpers and bi-level air
conditioning resulted in demarcation of the production as 'Series
II' from 1977 onwards before the name changed to 'Corniche II' in
1986 for the US market following further modifications. Most
sources indicate that 3. 24 Corniche Convertibles were built of
which 2. 06 were Series II cars. Rolls-Royce had varying degrees of
success with export sales and very roughly 25-30% of Series II cars
would have been sold to export markets.
Our example is a lefthand drive. Series II. delivered new by Marty
Motors Corp. New York on 30th January 1985. Specified with Royal
Blue coachwork with tan hide Connelly leather interior and Tan
Everflex electric convertible roof. The original owners wallet. br/>with delivery card. remains with the vehicle along with owner's
manual. audio guide. warranty pamphlets and service booklet (with
stamped entries in New York. Palm Beach. Florida and Maryland). The
Rolls-Royce master key is also present. It was privately imported
to the UK last year and has been subject to work on the suspension
and overhaul of the braking system by an independent specialist who
for many years worked on the Corniche whilst at HR Owen. Western
Avenue. London at the time when Rolls-Royce was still manufacturing
the Corniche and selling many from that flagship dealership. This
most elegant low-mileage example is beautifully poised and reported
by the private owner to drive majestically. The car is presented in
good order throughout and with eight months MoT test certificate. br/>is ready to be enjoyed straight away for continental top-down
motoring. 



Interested parties should note that the
current number plate is to be retained and a new aged-related
plate issued instead.
