There are some 1/43 white metal kits by SMTS of a Corniche convertible on eBay. (Listed as out of production on the SMTS web site.)

There is a 1/25 plastic Rolls Royce of this design. I couldn't find any pictures online, but I have two of them so I know they exist. With some work, it can be brought up to model kit standards. I'd include pictures of mine, but I still haven't recovered from getting hosed by Photobucket.

Some photos here. The green car is the toy as it comes, the red one I'm trying to detail out.

I can't remember who made it. I got mine on eBay. Sometimes they go for a lot, sometimes next to nothing. It's a toy, but it's a good start. In my pictures of the red car, the white stripes on the body are plastic I've added to make the shape more accurate. I also had to scratch build the chassis and engine as the toy has none.There is also a depression in the back of the trunk that the toy doesn't have. Really, though, the toy doesn't look that bad. If I recall who the maker is, I'll revisit this post and tell you. I think the toy was made in China.

Kinda ends up looking like a Checker cab.

For what it's worth, in John D MacDonald's Travis McGee series of novels, Travis drives an old Rolls that was converted to a pickup.

I'm not sure what year it is, but it IS a Chris Craft. I don't even remember why I saved the picture.

There is a Silver Cloud (I think) station wagon from Minicraft in a very close approximation of 1/24 or 1/25 scale.  I had one years ago but traded it.  You still may be able to find one.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

I had to look it up & found a WOODY ! ala Chyrsler Town & Country !

If you do it dark blue with the veneer you could call it " Evenin' Squire !" Embarrassed

Yeah, that's the one.  Guess my memory isn't as good as I thought.  I was going to pro-street it, but had a chance to trade so that is what I did.

I love the pro street idea Rick . I'd like to do one with all modern Rolls underpinnings , W12 - which i believe is basically 3x four cylinders on one crank . Quad turbo's... & supercharged , 8 speed auto box IFS/IRS big billet wheels , classy suitable ones obviously , no "Dubz 27" s**t" here !! LOL etc  .... And a roof rack for the longboards.
