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 15,000 miles (24,000 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 27 th March 1974. F
When the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was released to the public in October 1965, the development departments were showing the result of work carried out over a period of some ten years. The new series was characterised by surprisingly modern features and, with their development, Rolls-Royce broke new ground and away from many sacred design principles. The new models were technically striking in three ways; a monocoque chassis was used, all wheels were sprung independently and four-wheel disc brakes now ensured stopping power of the kind expected in a modern car. Under the bonnet, the V8 engine which had been introduced in the Silver Cloud series was employed. In February 1977, the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II was introduced. Outwardly, the models were identifiable by bumpers with rubber inserts and edges made from polyurethane. The most notable changes mechanically were to the rack and pinion steering and modifications to the front suspension which markedly improved handling. The Silver Shadow Long Wheelbase was renamed the Silver Wraith in 1976 and a total of 2,135 examples were manufactured. In addition to the additional legroom, the Silver Wraith was identifiable by a smaller rear
Rolls-Royce Motors formed Mulliner Park Ward by the 1961 merger of two Rolls-Royce subsidiaries: Park Ward of Willesden, London, a Rolls-Royce subsidiary since 1939 and H. J. Mulliner & Co. of Chiswick, a Rolls-Royce subsidiary since 1959. Mulliner Park Ward continues to operate as the vehicle customisation division of Bentley Motors Limited, the successor of Rolls-Royce Motors. The Corniche was a development of the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow with the two-door variants of that model marketed as the 'Silver Shadow Mulliner Park Ward' two-door fixedhead coupé; the very handsome coachwork design was by John Polwhele Blatchley. The model was assembled and finished in London at Mulliner Park Ward as continuation of the 1965 Silver Shadow coupé with the Corniche name being applied from 1971 for all two-door coupés. The car used the standard Rolls-Royce V8, 6750cc engine with an aluminium-silicon alloy block and aluminium cylinder heads with cast iron wet cylinder liners mated to a three-speed automatic transmission from General Motors. This Rolls-Royce was shipped and used in the U.S. until recently when it was repatriated to the UK. A delightful example of this very stylish design and be
The year 1929 saw the introduction of the Phantom II. There were a host of improvements over the Phantom I; the most important of which concerned the chassis layout. The separate gearbox torque-tube drive and cantilever rear springing gave way to the integral engine-gearbox unit, Hotchkiss drive, hypoid-bevel rear axle and semi-elliptic rear springs. The chassis was constructed with channel steel side-members and tubular cross-members. Fit and finish were, as to be expected, to the highest standards. Engine dimensions remained the same as the Phantom I at 4¼ x 5½ inches and displacing 7.6 litres. The overhead valve arrangement was retained but a new cylinder head was designed with intake and exhaust manifolds on opposite sides yielding greater performance. Dual ignition was continued with battery ignition on one side of the engine and magneto on the other, each with its own set of plugs. The Phantom II was built only at Derby and continued into 1935. These cars achieved an actual timed speed of 90mph with full equipment and relatively heavy enclosed coachwork, all beyond 2½ tons in weight. This was outstanding performance for a big car of that day. Between 1929 and 1935 around 1,77
The Rolls-Royce 25/30, built between 1936 and 1938, is an updated version of the 20/25 featuring a larger engine than had been fitted to the earlier model which provided more power to compensate for the over-size bodies being built. The in-line six cylinder, overhead valve, engine was similar to that used in the 20/25 but increased in capacity to 4,257cc. A single proprietary Stromberg downdraught carburettor replaced the Rolls-Royce one and magneto ignition was no longer fitted but a spare ignition coil was provided. The riveted chassis had rigid front and rear axles suspended by half elliptic springs with hydraulic dampers. Braking was on all four wheels assisted by a mechanical servo with separate rear brakes fitted for the handbrake. Also fitted was the traditional Rolls-Royce radiator with vertical louvres, the angle of which was controlled thermostatically to control engine cooling. Only the chassis and mechanical parts were made by Rolls-Royce. The body was then made and fitted by a coachbuilder selected by the owner. GLU 2, the second Rolls-Royce 25/30, was built as a propaganda/trials car and initially intended to be fitted with a saloon body by Barker which was then chang

1962 saw the introduction of the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III which was to be the final variant of the factory bodied standard steel saloon. At first glance it would appear that the all new Silver Cloud III was merely a Silver Cloud II with different headlamps. The introduction of the twin headlamps was clearly the most obvious change, but the differences did not end there. Further changes included the introduction of smaller bumper over riders and the re positioning of the front indicators and side lamps into one single unit on the front wing, resulting in an arguably more attractive appearance. Mechanically speaking the Silver Cloud III was issued with larger 9:1 compression ratio carburettors, improved power steering to aid smoother movement at parking speed and a Lucas vacuum-advance distributor to aid fuel consumption, making it almost identical in mechanical specification to the Bentley S3 Continental that was being produced at the same time. The Flying Spur design by H.J.Mulliner was initially introduced in 1957 and it could be argued that it was the most successful design ever created on the Bentley Continental chassis, being an option offered to customers on all three series built. This cannot be said about any other design on Bentley Continentals. By 1962 with the introduction of the Silver Cloud III chassis, for the very first time, a Rolls-Royce buyer could now choose an almost identical body style for his new car as a Bentley owner, with the fixed head and drophead coupes by Mulliner/Park Ward and lastly Design No 2042, the Flying Spur type design. Although almost identical to the Bentley Flying Spur, the Rolls-Royce variant was never officially referred to with the same title. They were sparingly built, with just thirty five cars built in right hand drive to this design, with a further seventeen built in left hand drive between 1962 and 1965. Chassis No CSC3C which we are currently offering for sale is one of the original thirty five cars built in right hand drive. It was completed and delivered in November of 1965, finished in black over midnight blue with beige leather. It was supplied by H.R.Owen and completed to the specification of the first owner, Metropole Industries of Liverpool House in London EC2. During the 1980’s Chassis No CSC3C became part of a collection of Flying Spur type motor cars believed to exceed ten in number, located in central London. It is understood that it was sparingly used during these years, and the exterior colour was changed to gunmetal grey at this time. In 1994 it left this collection, when it was purchased by Beam Harrow Ltd, also in London. It was purchased in 1997 by Mr R Hollands and then again in 2001 by Mr J Rankin who kept the car until 2013. Whilst in Mr Rankins ownership, the car was extensively mechanically reviewed, the works included an engine overhaul and detailed works to the brakes and suspension. More recently, the woodwork was restored by Frank Dale & Stepsons during early 2015, whilst the car was serviced and prepared in our workshops for the most recent owner. The history file indicates that the current odometer reading of 89,700 miles is the total mileage travelled from new, although we cannot confirm this with absolute certainty. This fine example is complete with a nice history file, complete tools and handbook and comes serviced, tested and ready for its next fortunate owner.

- Only three registered owners from new - Recent £8,000 expenditure at a leading Rolls-Royce specialist - Finished in its desirable and appealing original colours This Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow 1A was supplied new to the proprietor of Northern Caravans in Cheadle Hulme, Cheshire, and first registered on October 4th 1974. It must have been a wonderful and striking sight to have seen this car arrive outside the front door on that autumn day in 1974 with its Peacock Blue paint and Magnolia leather interior. Maintained for the first fourteen years of its life by the Rolls-Royce factory service department in Crewe, one judges by the generously sized history folder and handbook pack which accompany the car that it has been much loved by its three recorded owners. There are a large number of expired MOT certificates on file from the early 1990's to the present day. The vendor, a life-long enthusiast of the marque, describes the bodywork, paintwork, engine and gearbox as all being in 'excellent' condition following a recent £8,000 expenditure at a leading Rolls-Royce specialist, and a recorded mileage of only 74,442 miles. He also describes the interior as being 'in show condition' with it

Winner in the preservation class of the RREC national rally Patinated original but superb beige leather interiror Entirely solid and orginal body and chassis Well documented history This remarkably original Silver Cloud was a winner in the preservation class of the RREC national rally. It has covered only 61,000 miles from new. Presented in its original colour scheme of Masons Black over Silver Sand, with nicely patinated original but superb beige leather interior. The car drives beautifully, has always been well maintained and is in excellent condition throughout, with an entirely solid and original body and chassis. Particularly noteworthy is the delightfully correct way in which everything operates; it is still every inch a Rolls-Royce to ride in and to drive, which unfortunately is not the norm! It has a fascinating and well documented history, which includes a period spent in the USA from the late seventies. The very detailed history file incorporates original factory build documents, full ownership history and extensive maintenance records from new until the present day. It is very unusual indeed to find a Silver Cloud that has been as well maintained and beautifully preserve
Used by General Montgomery Reassigned to the Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force Smooth running 7338cc V12 engine Complete with extensive historical documentation This Freestone and Webb Phantom III Touring Limousine was built in 1936 and owned by the boss of English Talbot Motor Company, a Mr Frederick Wilcock. Mr Wilcock agreed to loan the car to the Ministry of War Transport on condition that it did not cross the Channel, because he did not want it blown up or shot at. The Phantom was subsequently regularly used by General Montgomery to commute between his home in Virginia Waters and London. It is known as the 'green car' because it is painted black and British racing green, whilst Monty's other Rolls Royces were plain black. Unfortunately Mr Wilcock's plan to preserve the car backfired on him. After D-Day the Phantom was reassigned to the Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force General Carl Spaatz and an American fuel tanker backed into it causing some damage, which has since been repaired. Powered by a smooth running 7338cc V12 engine, with a four speed gearbox and Laycock overdrive. This is a remarkably original and historically significant motor car, which wa
