The Corniche was Rolls-Royce's coupé and convertible version of
the Silver Shadow and was produced between 1971 and 1996. The
original Corniche was a prototype based on the Bentley Mark V
featuring coachwork by the Paris firm. Carrosserie Vanvooren. The
single car undertook 15. 00 miles (24. 00 km) of endurance
testing in Europe before being blown up by a bomb at Dieppe while
waiting at the dockside to be shipped to England. The Corniche was
originally named 'Silver Shadow Mulliner Park Ward Two Door
Fixedhead Coupé' before 1971 when the Corniche name. which had been
registered in the 1930s. was applied. The model was assembled and
finished in London at Mulliner Park Ward as a continuation of the
1965 Silver Shadow coupé and 1967 drophead coupé. with the exterior
being designed by John Polwhele Blatchley. The independent coach
maker. James Young. had already custom-made a two-door coupé
variant of the Silver Shadow but Young's model proved less popular
and was soon discontinued. The Corniche was also sold as a Bentley
although that model became known as the Continental in 1984.

This very good Rolls-Royce Corniche Fixedhead Coupé was first
registered in the UK on 27th March 1974. Fitted with the
usual refinements of air conditioning. electric seats and electric
windows. this car was also supplied. when new. with a rare electric
tilt and slide steel sunroof. Finished in Seychelles Blue metallic. br/>this Corniche was repainted in 1981 in the original colour. whilst
the magnolia leather interior was re-connolised at a later date.
The vehicle was exported to Germany in 2006 and became part of a
private collection for the last for years and has just returned to
the UK. The car will be issued with a NOVA certificate if it is to
remain in the UK and is supplied with the German registration
document. a UK MoT test certificate which expires at the end of
January 2017. copies of the original chassis cards and a file of
invoices. This Corniche Fixedhead Coupé is in good condition
throughout only requiring minor cosmetic restoration to return it
to excellent condition.
