This is an incredibly well restored Rolls-Royce Corniche Fixed Head Coupe (“FHC”) finished in Chalice silver, black leather interior with contrasting St James red Wilton wool carpets and accents. The body waist-rails are accented with a single deep red hand-painted fine-line delightfully finishing off this refined elegance. In any setting the car takes on a very formal appearance. But once you open the doors, the rich interior combination makes her striking in a very regal manner. She is simply stunning. The paint job is stunning. The car was stripped of all its fittings to include all windows (including side and door window frames) out and then paint-stripped to bare metal. This revealed a rather straight motor car with only some minor rust in water ingress areas such as the rear glass channel, right side headlamp brow and the door steps. These were all cut out and steel welded in. The car was meticulously repainted using modern 2-stage paint technology in her original Chalice silver and the existing (and factory fitted) Everflex top replaced with a new one. Some of you with a keen eye will see the car has 1979-1980 door mirrors fitted (ala Silver Shadow II style but also Corniche). These were actually fitted in her original ownership to overcome the lack of dual mirrors and so the owners requested these remain. They look very “at-home” and quite acceptable. Upon reassembly we fitted all new body gaskets, clips, window seals and felts, boot seal, and edge finishers. All the bright work was removed and machined polished and then hand polished upon finally reassembly. This includes the grille, headlight brows, bumpers, side mouldings, rocker mouldings, door handles, hub caps, inner sill mouldings and door entry scuff plates including the fitment of new rubber treads. Some items, like the door handles and C pillar demarcation mouldings for the Everflex top were rechromed. The finish is as good as you would hope for. To complete the "new-look", new tail lamp lenses, front turn signal lenses and headlights were fitted! The final touch being the pin-striping down the side of the car applied by the original hand-painted technique using only the finest squirrel hair brushes and performed by an artisan with the steadiest of hands. The fine line was done in deep red just as she sported when new. The interior was almost all replaced. All new leather seating in black with dark red piping, as per original specification. The leather door panels were retained with cocktail requisites fitted to each door. Specification correct light grey broad cloth wool was used for the headliner and all new Wilton wool carpets with leather binding were fitted. This process also included new underlay. All the Italian burl walnut wood inside the car was stripped and refinished with no less than 20 coats of clear lacquer, each hand-rubbed between coats to provide a final finish like glass. This includes the dash, front doors, rear seat inner waist-rails, door and window surrounds, rear ash-tray surrrounds and centre console. The final finish on the wood throughout is simply stunning. Nothing was left unattended; exhaust, suspension, steering, ignition, the electrical charging system, fuel tank, pump, filters and lines, I could go on for paragraphs. Of course, brand new whitewall tyres were fitted. Everything done has been documented. The car is ready to be driven and enjoyed.
