*Much history
*Originally supplied by Jack Barclay
*Attractive colour combination


Arguably the last word in latter-day convertible decadence, the Rolls-Royce Corniche never fell out of favour, despite its long production run, but models superseding it never quite captured the Corniche's aura. Here is 1985 model that was sold new by Jack Barclay, our trade vendor says. It was delivered in acrylic Garnet with colour-complementing hood. The vendor says bodywork, paint and trim are in excellent condition, as are the trim, wheels and tyres. The interior is reported as presenting well, the champagne hide seats as very good, the carpet as very good and the trim is ranked as excellent: please note, the boot carpet is stained. A phone was fitted at some stage but this has been removed from the centre console. Engine starting is said to be very good and the engine is reportedly running excellently and the underbonnet area presents very well. Running gear is in excellent overall condition, the vendor says.

Supplied new by Jack Barclay and said to come with a comprehensive history file this Corniche is drop-top hedonism of the highest order, and its colour scheme adds to its presence. Trade vendor.
