Arguably the ultimate 1970s and 1980s status symbol of wealth and success, the Rolls-Royce Corniche was a car sought after by many but one only the fortunate few could afford. Designed and intended to be enjoyed by their lucky owners in warm-weather climates, each Corniche took four months to be hand built, with two weeks spent on the convertible top alone. With a list price of well over $100,000 each car utilized only the finest materials Britain had to offer, including Wilton wool carpeting, Connolly leather, and carefully selected burl walnut veneer. First introduced in 1971, the Corniche remained in production for nearly 25 years and over this time, these cars were periodically updated to keep them both modern and relevant. The Corniche II, the model's first major revision, was introduced in 1977 and included new rack-and-pinion steering, alloy and rubber bumpers which replaced the earlier chrome bumpers, along with an oil cooler, aluminum radiator, and bi-level air conditioning system.

The 1979 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible featured here is finished in the stunning factory color combination of Porcelain White over an original red Connolly leather interior and a tan power folding convertible top. This particular example was sold new in the Summer of 1979 by Higham's Cadillac-Rolls-Royce of Houston, Texas and has been meticulously maintained since. Today it presents in wonderful condition with original leather interior, all the while a mere 37,000 miles are present on the odometer! Less than 1,500 miles ago a complete $3,700 service was performed by a respected marque specialist, ensuring that this desirable Corniche Convertible performs as well as it presents. We are proud to offer this stunning, low mileage Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates low mileage and the unsurpassed quality of Rolls-Royce Motorcars!
