1973 Rolls-Royce Corniche Drop Head Coupe

Spotted on trademe.co.nz in late 2019, this example was asking $79,000 NZD at the time and looks in excellent condition, with a great colour combination. The seller at the time made the following comments about the car:

"It is our considered belief that chassis number CRH14204 was tourist delivered from the Rolls-Royce factory as it was some two years later in October 1975 that it arrived in New Zealand and was registered in Auckland. In April 1978, it changed hands to a country gentleman who retained the vehicle for 12 years before ending up in a Hamilton car yard in 2000. Its next keeper acquired the car in September 2001 before passing it on to the current owner in 2009. Such lengthy tenures tend to indicate a high level of satisfaction with the vehicle. The MPW plaque on the dash signifies the work of Mulliner Park Ward, a handbook and Radiomobile push button radio are present as to is an 8-track stereo! Both the air conditioning and cruise control are in working order. Speedometer reads 5,521 miles (105,521). Whilst some service history is available, the car has only recently had work performed by a local independent marque expert. All panel gaps are excellent with the doors, bonnet and boot all closing with minimal effort."
