Don't let this opportunity lie and become the new owner of this timeless Rolls Royce! This is a NO RESERVE PRICE AUCTION.
The Rolls-Royce Corniche was the coupé and convertible model of the Silver Shadow since 1971. In contrast to the Silver Shadow, the Corniche stayed in production until 1996. In the past, the model existed as the Silver Shadow Coupé and Silver Shadow Drophead Coupé, but they received their own name in 1971.
Between 1971 and 1982, a total of 1108 Rolls Royce Corniche Coupes were produced (not even 100 per year). Certainly the first generation Corniche coupe with chrome bumpers and sunroof (up to 1976) is highly sought after and as good as impossible to find, of this very unique car are offered only a few pieces in Europe.
It concerns a Corniche produced in February 1971, which is one of the first Rolls Royce Corniches.
This is a neat and well maintained car. However, the car has stood still for some time and would now benefit from a technical service. The car starts immediately and runs reasonably, but the engine sometimes has a backfire. Also, the car does not brake properly.
The original interior is still in very neat condition as can be seen on the pictures, also the creme leather is beautifully combined with the 'Brewster green' lacquer. A classic British combination. Furthermore, the car has its original engine and transmission and is thus completely matching numbers.
So don’t wait and seize this opportunity to become the proud new owner of this beautiful piece of British automotive history.
