Description:This incredibly maintained Corniche Convertible has few rivals when it comes to originality and level of quality. The original lamb's wool overlay rugs are in wonderful condition. something rarely seen in a Roll-Royce of this vintage. The interior is adorned with its original deep lacquer finished Burl Walnut trim. and the Connolly hides are still soft and supple to the touch. Inside. the car is fitted with a fully lined and insulated Everflex roof for maximum comfort and a whisper quiet ride. This is truly one of the finest Corniche Convertibles to be found anywhere.
These are among the last of the truly hand-crafted Rolls-Royce models before being acquired by outsides interests and being turned into ordinary mass produced automobiles. The Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible is destined to one day grace future Concours d'Elegance events. but for the moment these exclusive machines appear to be highly undervalued. making their investment potential incredibly attractive. According to Knight Frank's Wealth Report. classic cars were the top-performing collectible asset with prices surging 23-percent in the 12-months ending in the third quarter of 2012.
History:A convertible version of the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow went into production in 1967 as the Silver Shadow Mulliner Park Ward Two-Door Drop Head CoupÃ©. The lengthy name was finally reduced to the Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible in 1971 when the car received minor update. The exterior design was created by John Polwhele Blatchley and the car was assembled alongside the Corniche CoupÃ© at Rolls-Royceâ€™s London H J Mulliner Park Ward facility. Production finally moved to Crewe in 1994 when the London works closed. The Corniche was sold in both Bentley and Rolls-Royce variants with the two being almost identical both technically and visually. Only a fraction of the cars produced however were sold with a Bentley badge. After 1988 the Bentley Corniche became known as the Continental.
Perhaps the ultimate style statement of the 1970s and 80s the Corniche's stately presence was as popular with music and film stars as it was with the gentry. The Car has had only two owners. The previous owner was a Vietnam Vetaran. that unfortunately got ingerd and could not sude it with such frequency. so in 2005 he decided to sell. The Current owner. Me. well I bought it for my Father on he's 50th birthday. We have had the Rolls. in mint condition for day 1; always kept in an indoor garage. and up toned in the best mechanic of Miami. "Vintage Motor Works".
Why are we selling:Well. I Moved out of the House. and my father is slowly moving back to his home county of Spain. We believe its time for some one else to enjoy the ride.
