Rolls-Royce Corniche

Yet another stylish Rolls-Royce in the Corgi line-up, now we are into 1:36 scale and this is the the Corniche, which is a 2 door coupe & convertible based on the Silver Shadow which was in the Rolls-Royce line-up from 1971 to 1995. We have opening doors, boot and bonnet as we should. Not quite up to the standard of the previous take-off wheels Rolls-Royce though but I still like it a lot.

The 279 Rolls Royce Corniche was added to the Corgi range in July 1979 and remained in production up to and beyond the Mettoy receivership in 1983. You will find Mettoy versions in metallic red, bright blue, light metallic blue, white and cream. No version is particularly rare or gets a premium
