||Cream leather with blue piping
|Milage (not warranted):
The Rolls Royce Corniche 'Last of Line' was a limited edition to commemorate the end of production of Rolls Royces at Crewe. The Rolls Royce production in Crewe lasted from 1946 to 2002, 56 years in total. 56 examples of the Corniche 'Last of Line' were planned to be manufactured and at least 46 examples were built.
Sir Jimmy's was one of only 9 right-hand drive examples made and is numbered 46 to the commemorative plaque on the centre console. The JS of the registration number need not be spelled out: the 247 refers, of course, to the 247 metres medium wave frequency used by BBC Radio 1 from 1967 to 1978.
