'erayerdal', a sure give away would be if you could get close enough for a shot of the facia (dashboard). The Corniche facia was redesigned, and does not resemble the Silver Shadow facia. All of the other Corniche parts such as the badge on the boot lid, and the wheel covers, are frequently added to the earlier cars, to be purposely deceptive.

From this distance and vantage point, it is hard to tell if this is a Corniche. If erayerdal is correct that the car is a 1969 model, then it is a Silver Shadow convertible, not a Corniche. Contrary to popular belief, the model name 'Corniche' does not designate a body style. This body already existed as the Silver Shadow convertible and fixed head coupe. The Corniche name tag indicated important changes to the model. Engine increase from 6.2 to 6.7 litre. Larger diameter exhaust system. A variety of changes. The Corniche model began with the 1971 model year.

In this case, erayerdal appears to be incorrect about this being a 1969. I believe this is an early series Corniche model. The depth of the grille shell was increased on the Corniche models, and to my eye, it appears to have the deeper shell. The car has a variety of issues though. The chrome embellishers around the wheel openings are incorrect, the side marker lights are not correct etc.
