Convertible Coupe
The Corniche was introduced in 1971 as the company was going into receivership. They were the coupe and convertible versions of the Silver Shadow. Power was from a 6.75-liter aluminum V8 engine fitted with twin SU carburetors and coupled to a three-speed Hydramatic transmission. The wheelbase measured 120 inches with a hydraulic self-leveling four-wheel independent suspension, four wheel disc brakes and weighed 4,816 pounds. Just 3,239 convertibles were producing during the 1971 to 1987 production run.

The car was purchased by the current owner in 1971 and it was delivered in September of 1973. Accessories included bar fittings in the driver's door and vanities in the passenger door. The pin striping was two thin lines with initials on the door to match. The car has been carefully maintained and is in original condition.
