What a car! This 1971 Rolls-Royce Corniche has only clocked up a tiny 28,000 miles in the last 50 years! The car, dating from the very first year Rolls-Royce added the Corniche to its collection, still looks great. This stately coupé has lost none of its allure over the last five decennia. This car, initially supplied to the USA, not only looks the part, it also has an amount of documentation bound to make even the keenest enthusiast’s heart beat faster. We will get back to dealing with the documentation later.
Externally the Corniche has a Mulliner body with a timeless “Coffee Bean Brown” finish together with a slightly lighter shade of brown Everflex roof covering. Inside it has brown carpets and champagne coloured leather. This car was handed over to its first owner on the 17th of September 1971 and is still in excellent condition. The correctly aligned panelwork looks wonderful. This Rolls-Royce Corniche also still sports her original chrome bumpers and hubcaps which together with the Everflex roof covering are all in great shape.
The leather-clad interior looks very fine with the seats being ever so supple and have developed a lovely patina. The carpets and wooden dashboard inlay are also fully original. Every control and gauge is
similarly original and in perfect working order. The fully original roof lining is in superb shape. It is these details that demonstrate how well previous owners have looked after this car.
Under the bonnet, matters have been just as well maintained. The engine bay is beautifully manicured. The 6.75-litre V8 engine is attached to a 3-speed automatic. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the correct functioning hydraulic system. The brakes respond perfectly and the suspension irons out any undulations in the road surface as good as it did in 1971. The Rolls-Royce Corniche is the type of car that can instantly lowers your heart rate by seven beats per minute.
The car’s documentation is worth a separate mention. A fist thick file describes everything about this car from day one to the current day. There are copies of the original factory documents, invoices, photos and general information that underpins this Rolls-Royce Corniche’s condition and authenticity.
In short this is a beautifully Rolls-Royce Corniche with a gorgeous finish and fantastic maintenance history.
