Rolls Royce Mulliner Park Ward by the 1961 merger of two Rolls-Royce subsidiaries: Park Ward of Willesden, London, a Rolls-Royce subsidiary since 1939 and H. J. Mulliner & Co. of Chiswick, a Rolls-Royce subsidiary since 1959. Mulliner Park Ward continues to operate as the vehicle customisation division of Bentley Motors Limited, the successor of Rolls-Royce Motors. The Corniche was a development of the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow with the two-door variants of that model marketed as the ‘Silver Shadow Mulliner Park Ward’ two-door fixed-head coupé, the very handsome coachwork design was by John Polwhele Blatchley. The model was assembled and finished in London at Mulliner Park Ward as a continuation of the 1965 Silver Shadow coupé, the Corniche name was applied from 1971 for all two-door coupés. The car used the standard Rolls-Royce V8 6750cc engine, with an aluminium-silicon alloy block and aluminium cylinder heads with cast iron wet cylinder liners mated to a three-speed automatic transmission from General Motors.
This two-door Mulliner Park Ward was manufactured in 1970 and is finished in Seychelles Blue with cream interior. This car has been dry stored for the last five years, however with a fully charged battery she fired up immediately and ran well. Supplied with a V5 registration document, this rare example Rolls-Royce will appeal to both enthusiasts and investors alike. The classic lines of such a handsome car will always define this car as one that ‘stands out from the crowd’.
