Frank Sinatra was the original owner of this extraordinary car, presented to him as a gift from his Rat Pack pals in 1984. MARQUES Prestige are currently preparing this incredible Corniche for sale on behalf of the current (3rd) owner. The owner is considering presenting the car to the market through auction, however, the pre-preparation photographs demonstrate the beauty of this unique vehicle so well, we felt it only fitting to allow interested parties to preview and perhaps purchase the car before commitment to auction. Interestingly, during assessment of the car, the owner asked if we could gain access to a locked cupboard fitted to the drivers door. With the help of our local locksmith, access was granted, allowing access to a hip flask in solid silver, glass and leather, and two crystal shot glasses, all containing residue of a beverage most probably originating from the highlands of Scotland - it is quite probable that Ol' Blue Eyes himself was the last to handle and use these items! A full description of this car will be compiled shortly and added to this advertisement. In the meantime, please feel free to view additional images on a hidden page on our website at... www.marquesprestige.com/ratpackcorniche If you would like further information, please do not hesitate to contact us. Viewing can of course be arranged depending on the location of the car and stage of sale preparation.
Rolls-Royce registered the Corniche name in the 1930s and apparently assigned it to a prototype based on the Bentley MK V, but the model was never progressed due to the onset of war. The moniker was finally first employed in 1971 on the Coupe and Convertible versions of the Silver Shadow. In common with the Shadow, the newcomer was penned by in-house designer John Polwhele Blatchley and the underbody and floorpan crafted by Pressed Steel Fisher. Initial assembly (including alloy bonnet, bootlid and doors) was then carried out by Mulliner Park Ward. At this stage the cars were transported to the main factory in Crewe for the installation of the running gear before returning to London for the trimming, painting and finishing. Power was provided by the company's long-standing 6.75-litre V8, that was mated to a GM Turbo Hydramatic 400 three-speed automatic transmission. Suspension was independent by coil springs all round, augmented by a Citroen-originated hydraulic self-levelling system. Braking was by discs, with ventilated units phased in for 1972. The model received a mild update in 1977, when alloy and rubber bumpers replaced the earlier chromed items and new style wheel rims and

This Rolls-Royce Corniche drives beautifully and is in fine order throughout 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 coachbuilt 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 bodyshells were unique, featuring a distinctive dipping upper wing line with parallel cr
