Rolls-Royce Corniche coupes are becoming a rare find in this condition and are becoming more and more sought by collectors. This one is a very fine example that suits both the connoisseur driver and collector. Finished in “Garnet”, a deep plum burgundy colour just like the gemstone, she's is paired up with black Connolly leather interior with burgundy piping and matching floor rugs The car is finished with hand-painted gold fine-lines on the body waist-line. The color is a stunning combination with the Garnet presenting as a rich Bordeaux under sun light but then transforms into a deep plum and almost black hue in lower light and at night time, giving the car a very formal look. The rich black leather finished off with burgundy piping sets the interior off perfectly. The carpets in the rich burgundy theme are a very formal touch. The body on the car is straight and the paint is very nice. It has been a California car for most of its life and then spent a few years in Florida as a "Holiday residence" car. It was professionally repainted some 15 years ago so it presents well. Other than the odd little chip (very minor) the paint is excellent. High in luster, very glossy and no signs of any over-spray on any externally fitted part. The Everflex vinyl top is in excellent condition without any signs of underlying moisture issues which are otherwise typical of these cars. The interior of the car is in stunning condition with virtually perfect original Connolly hide leather. The leather has never been replaced or repaired. Excellent testament to its relatively low mileage (any lines you may see in the photos are the “natural” creases in the leather – for some reason, they are accentuated in the photos whereas in real life the seats present with welcoming patina that is just gorgeous). The leather is soft and supple as you can see in some photos showing a "scrunch test". All the wood is in excellent condition with dash and door cappings all original and having never been redone. Although showing some very minor marks in the clear in only a few select spots, they are truly superb and with the grace of Mother Nature helping out in the selection of woods, the knots, grains and diversity of the wood is artisanship at its finest. The headlining is in beautiful condition without any of the "grubbiness" often seen on these wool headliners. The carpet is also excellent. The deep grain and glossy finish of the rich grained wood in this example combined with the regal burgundy offset black interior makes it all very rich and inviting. **For the winning bidder, a set of genuine Rolls-Royce lambswool mouton rugs are available if sort after. All interior feature and functions are fully operational including all electrics – seats, windows, gauges, clock etc. The A/C blows icy cold and heater working well. Everything is all so clean and crisp. It has its original push-button radio and factory installed Radiomobile 8-track cassette – not many left these days. The chrome and bright work is stunning without any pitting and the rubber around the car is good. The rear view door mirrors were upgraded to the later style and we think they are a nice addition. Mechanically, the car is in superior condition and the presentation under the bonnet and under carriage clearly shows that. It has not been “done-up” for sale but maintained in original condition. All hydraulics and brakes have been inspected and tested, working well. Exhaust is good. The car has been fully work-shop inspected. The car comes with the correct jack, tools and operating manual. This is a 9.5 out of 10 driver example that needs nothing else doing. It makes for a gorgeous “weekender” that you could take to your next RR meet with absolute pride and joy. www.park-ward.com +1-312-320-6996
