First and foremost, the introduction to this description is paramount; this is the most immaculate and "like-new" Corniche convertible you will find anywhere. So spectacular in its exemplary condition and presentation, you would be well and truly forgiven to think you are looking at a 1 or 2 year old example. She is stunning!! An incredibly fine example of a Corniche III convertible finished in delectable (and rare) Tudor Red with handsome black Connolly hide interior with all matching Wilton wool carpets and as-new factory mouton overlays. The coach-lines are elegantly contrasted in gold. This is a Canadian specification car and although fully compliant to US standards as well, was one of a several cars that "slipped by" the need to have an airbag fitted on the driver side (and exempt from those rather bizarre auto seatbelts that were mandated in lieu). So you have the very much more elegant steering wheel as was seen in the home market and more commonly referred to as "Euro spec". This car was imported by us in 2015. Mileage is an incredible 15,000 (24,000 kilometres) and, needless to say, has a perfect AutoCheck report. The Corniche design with its signature rear quarter "hip-line" is unquestionably one of the most elegant of coach-work designs provided by Rolls-Royce's coach-builder - Mulliner Park-Ward. It has tested the time for elegance and style enduring no less than 30 years in production (1966-1996). This being a 1991 model, it has most of the engineering upgrades and product features introduced over the maturity cycle of the model. Too many to list here but a few; alloy wheels, upgraded dash with 4-bullseye AC outlets, full length console, heated seats, much deeper and heavier tufted leather seats, just to name a few. A not often identified upgrade was the much larger rear 1/4 glass which was introduced to enable an increase in roof height for rear seat passengers and providing for a more elegant appearance to the car when the roof is up and better outward view for rear passengers. This Corniche III has clearly had a cosseted life. The paint is 100% original and nothing has been repainted - not even any touch-up. The interior is like it was never used; just look at the switch gear, knobs, buttons, gauges etc. The car has complete lockable cocktail cabinets fitted in both doors with all original and unused Tudor, Seymour shot glasses and decanters. The only modification to this car is the Blaupunkt stereo system which was fitted by us for the previous owner. The system is much nicer than the original 2-part Alpine system factory fitted. The Barcelona-230 Blaupunkt was specifically chosen for its aesthetic elegance and suitability to the car whilst offering all the convenience of CD, blue-tooth and USB inputs. Where one of the 2-part previous units was fitted, a hand-built wooden cubby was installed to provide as a discrete and useful small storage unit for your phone and other personal items. The large base-box in the trunk was specifically installed in such a way that it can be removed without any visual trace of its existence. Very important to the purist who will most certainly want it removed (it can be simply unplugged, picked up and removed from the boot). We also have the original factory Alpine unit from the car but for its unattractive and substandard performance, we would not recommend its reinstallation. This Corniche III is a 2-owner car with the second more recent owner having purchased from us 4 years ago. A respected client of ours of several years, one might say; the perfect caretaker of the marque, whereby he only travelled 500 klms in the three years and yet, had the car maintained by a Rolls-Royce expert each and every year. The car has already been inspected by our workshop and needs nothing. Even the Avon tyres are like new. The car drives incredibly nice. Many are not aware, the changes in suspension design for the later Corniches resulted in a very smooth car. Their ride is
