Description

Rolls Royce Corniche in superb condition with a rare and beautiful color combination.

The name of this superb car originally comes from the French word corniche, a coastal road, especially along the face of a cliff, most notably the Grande Corniche along the French Riviera above the principality of Monaco. Recalling the seductive Grandes Routières between the two wars like the Phantom II Continental, the last models with special bodywork of Rolls-Royce - whose execution was entrusted to the firm Mulliner, Park Ward integrated into the group - were limited to two models only, a two-door coupe (or coach) and a similar convertible, the first arriving in 1966 and the second the following year. These cars were hand built in the great tradition of British bodywork using only top quality materials including Wilton carpets, Connolly leathers and varnished walnut veneers in necessarily lengthy processes that spanned 20 weeks and a little more for the more complex convertible to assemble. This attention to detail resulted in a price tag 50 percent higher than the standard Silver Shadow sedan.
