Rolls-Royce Corniche 2 Door Saloon.

This is the Saloon version of the two variants known.

Mini Racing made a large range of sport and rally car models as white metal kits, several also available as fully finished versions. In 1982, they released an unusual model, a 1981 Paris-Dakar rally car in the form of a Rolls-Royce 2 door saloon. As it turned-out, it was a Corniche bodyshell built over the running gear of a Toyota Land Cruiser. Mini Racing issued this kit as model number 0061.

In 1983, Mini Racing released normal road car versions as part of the Prestige range.

Model number PK 5 is the Rolls-Royce Corniche 2 door saloon.

Model number PK 6 is the Rolls-Royce Corniche 2 door convertible with the roof folded down to make an open car.

Model number PK 7 is the Rolls-Royce Corniche 2 door convertible with the roof in the closed (up) position to make a closed car.

To my knowledge Mini Racing never made a Bentley version using the above mouldings.
