1973 Rolls-Royce Corniche

Rolls-Royce appointed this particular Corniche with some very unique woodwork.  A "blonde" colored veneer was chosen.  The solid timber members were "blonde" colored, as was the crossbanding. The results added an elegant touch and a look that set this Rolls-Royce apart from the others.
Over time the original "honey" color faded away, as did the fine woodgrain pattern lines.
 

Rolls-Royce did not stain their woodwork, and what you see below.....is the what these parts looked like when they were new....AFTER we restored them.

The upper solid wood of the door rails was a very blonde wood, as is the crossbanding.
 
Here you can see how subtle the wood grain pattern is.
 
Rolls-Royce chose a very light tan color to paint the bevels on these parts.
 

These window switch panels were uniquely shaped.

 
Of all the parts, the door capping rails showed the most grain pattern and the beautiful "honey color" that Rolls-Royce chose for this set.  When we received these parts, all of them had bleached out so much, that any contrast was lost.
Although this picture is a bit blurry, you can see how complex this part was to make.  The craftsmen at Rolls-Royce put all of their skills to work when they made these parts.
Here is the steering wheel after we restored it. 
This close-up of the steering wheel shows a very unique grain pattern that complimented the rest of the woodwork.
The horn button was wooden and had the RR logo on it.
