The 1987 Rolls-Royce Corniche II Convertible featured here is finished in the stunning factory color combination of Magnolia Inmont over a Parchment Connolly leather interior with Dark Brown piping and Cream power folding convertible top. This particular example was sold new in the spring of 1987 through Terry York Motor Cars Ltd in Encino, California to a meticulous owner who kept the Corniche in near pristine condition until 2019. Today it presents in wonderfully with only 16,277 miles on the odometer. Accompanying service records show document that the Corniche was exclusively serviced from 2004 onward by Rolls-Royce of Beverly Hills who completed a $5,600 service in 2016. Additional documentation includes the original books, copy of the original warranty certificate, original temporary registration, jack, factory tools and more! Simply put this is one of the best examples we have brought to the market in years and this example will certainly bring many years of enjoyment to its future caretaker. We are especially proud to offer this stunning 1987 Rolls-Royce Corniche II Convertible to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates low mileage and documented single ownership provenance!
