1972 'K' Rolls Royce Corniche with a staggering 10,000 kilometres only, long term ownership, extensive history, one off opportunity

An unrepeatable opportunity with such staggering low mileage and a vast amount of supporting history.

The vehicle has covered an incredible low mileage with an A4 binder almost 2 inches thick containing a very interesting history portfolio. The car was purchased new in August 1972 by a gentleman living in Bangkok, hence the speedometer was specified in kilometres. Sadly this gentleman died before taking delivery of the car and the vehicle remained with Rolls Royce until 1995 at which point it was purchased by a very wealthy Saudi gentleman residing in the UK. At the time of this gentleman's purchase, and with only 6,000 km recorded, the car was sent to Mulliner Park Ward where it was subjected to a "major programme of renovation back to it's original and standard condition" with expenditure of 50,717 ! We have all the paperwork from Mulliner Park Ward to verify this work, incidentally. Eventually the gentleman gifted the car to his wife upon their wedding and she still owns the car today. Unused for many periods of time and occasionally put back on the road, the car has covered very few miles in the intervening years. In the history folder we have a large collection of service invoices detailing work carried out with some vast expenditure over the years, all work having been carried out at Mulliner Park Ward or respected marque specialists. We have noticed that the previous MOT's for the vehicle indicate the same mileage from 2001 to 2007 and then show only a very slight increase in mileage up to 2013 however the lady advises us that the car was not in use and was taken by trailer for the MOT test purposely to keep the mileage down, indeed the mileage today is still only 300km higher than it was in 2001 !

 Finished in Black with magnolia hide, the entire car presents exceptionally well with only very minor age related blemishes to be found, we would be very hard pressed to find a nicer, more original example. On the road the car performs beautifully and attracts a great deal of attention from passers by, this is a really striking vehicle in the metal with the black coachwork contrasting with the chrome work quite markedly.

Period specification includes electric seats, split level climate control air conditioning, cruise control, electric windows, fog lamps, correct Corniche wood rimmed steering wheel and of course a rev counter. The tyres are correct Avon turbosteel, all with good tread. The in car entertainment system was upgraded by Mulliner Park Ward to a state of the art Alpine unit - in 1995.

This is a one off opportunity with such a low mileage and excellent provenance, we are expecting considerable interest in the car.

The car will be supplied with a new MOT with no advisory notices.
