This is a timeless symbol of elegance. The 1979 Rolls-Royce Corniche convertible was a custom coachwork car that was built by a handful of experts and only delivered to the very elite. It is such a desirable jewel for your garage that an exceptionally well maintained example like this is constantly in-demand.
Off-White may not have the same opulent title as Notting Green or Tutor Gray, but it is arguably the best factory color offered by Rolls-Royce to be both classically elegant and never out of fashion. This is the original color code, and we believe it's the original paint. The stellar condition is a testament to the craftsmanship that quietly represents the calm elegance that is expected from the Spirit of Ecstasy. The company's careful dedication to building the finest cars is seen from every angle with a convertible that continues to fit together beautifully. The doors open and close with a precision that has to be experienced to be believed, and the panel alignment is the result of a coachbuilt experience. Remember, any Rolls-Royce is far from common, but the Corniche were personally crafted by special order at the historic Mulliner Park Ward coachworks in London. These were officially known as Drophead Coupes because the power folding top was fitted so well that was more like a fixed roof when in place. It is this kind of attention to detail that makes a Rolls-Royce command respect everywhere it goes, and it is still very present in this example today.
Open the door, and you're treated to sumptuous Connolly tan leather seats piped in white. Color coordination is the key to a proper Rolls, and you see that in the dark tan wool carpets with similar white piping. This leather and wool also perfectly coordinates with the acres of real wood on the doors, dash, and steering wheel. Luxury also means plenty of features, including power windows, power seats, power locks, provisions for air conditioning and an upgraded AM/FM/CD player (also with provisions for a cassette.) While this is what you want in a convertible, as a true Rolls-Royce, you can have the top in place, and its level on insulation give you coupe-like quietness.
The smooth running 6.75-liter V8 under the hood is a staple of Rolls-Royce luxury, and this one has averaged less than 1,600 miles annually. It has been expertly maintained, so you know this is exactly how a car of this stature should be. The motor was engineered to always have power in reserve. In true luxury fashion, it's not delivered like a muscle car, but instead more like an express train. The engine bay looks as complicated as the inner workings of a Swiss watch, but it also starts with a similar whisper-quite tickover. Rolls Royce engineers went to great lengths to isolate the mechanical workings from passengers, and as a result, the engine is highly refined, going about its business with a minimum of fuss. This is luxury for trips of all sizes thanks to a smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and cruise control. The fully independent suspension glides over rough pavement like a hovercraft, and it stays sure-footed with four-wheel disc brakes.
Beautifully coachbuilt, expertly maintained, and award-worthy excellence this is desire on wheels. Complete with owner's manual, this is a timeless classic that proves distinction can be bought for less, but class has never been so affordable. Call today!!!
