First registered as 722 HYP in October 1973, and only in very recent years registered in Guernsey, this Rolls-Royce Corniche is now finished in light gold with the paintwork being in excellent condition. The interior is Magnolia leather with matching door cards, complemented by Deep Fawn Over Rugs. Woodwork is traditional highly figured Burr Walnut and like the bright work is in excellent condition. This Rolls-Royce Corniche drives beautifully and is in fine order throughout

This delightfully original Rolls Royce Corniche Park Ward FHC has only covered 61075 miles from new. The car was supplied new by Charles Follett Ltd, London W1 in Coffee Bean Brown with Beige leather interior, it comes with a comprehensive file containing MOT's dating back over 20 years and invoices for servicing and parts over many years. The majority of invoices are from Jack Barclay Ltd indicating the car has been maintained and with no expense spared. Recent invoices are from Rolls Royce specialist Phantom Motors

The Corniche has a beautifully straight coachwork with no rust problems evident. The paintwork has a high-quality finish and the original leather interior has a delightful patina. The engine bay is detailed and the car has a very original, honest feel. On the road performance is superb as you would expect with such a motor car. The Corniche is ideal for both long and short distance touring and has a wonderful feel of quality.

Mechanically. a very detailed history file accompanies the Corniche, recent service expenditure and recommissioning carried out by Phantom Motor Cars Ltd totals nearly £20,0000 during the period 2013-2014

The Corniche is now prepared and ready for the next owner to enjoy the delights of Rolls Royce motoring in comfort and style.

Model History
Rolls-Royce's adoption of unitary construction for its new Silver Shadow and T-Series Bentley necessitated the reorganisation of in-house coachbuilder H J Mulliner, Park Ward to enable it to produce new designs on the Shadow floor pan. Recalling the firm's glamorous Grandes Routières of pre-war days such as the Phantom II Continental, these final coach built models were limited to just two, a two-door coupé or similar convertible, the former arriving in March 1966 and the latter in September the following year. Some of the frontal panels were shared with the standard four-door saloon but otherwise the new body shells were unique, featuring a distinctive dipping upper wing line with parallel crease, and revised, more rounded posterior. Construction involved shuttling the body shells between the Crewe factory and MPW's Willesden plant, a necessarily lengthy process that took all of 20 weeks for the saloon and slightly longer for the more complex convertible. These exclusive cars were hand built in the best traditions of British coach building using only materials of the finest quality including Wilton carpeting, Connolly hide and burr walnut veneers, such painstaking attention to detail resulting in a price some 50% higher than that of the standard Silver Shadow. Nevertheless, demand for these more glamorous alternatives to the much more numerous four-door model was strong right from the start, a state of affairs that resulted in them being given their own model name - 'Corniche' - in March 1971. In Corniche form Rolls-Royce's well-tried 6.7-litre V8 produced around 10% more power than standard and proved capable of propelling the car to a top speed in excess of 120mph with sports car-
beating acceleration to match.
