For Sale: 1984 Rolls-Royce Corniche in Carey, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Presenting here; a really gorgeous example of a Rolls-Royce Corniche convertible. Finished in Magnolia (cream/beige) with rich burgundy fine lines to the waist-rails that match the very royal presenting burgundy leather interior with black seat piping. The carpets are matching burgundy with mouton overlays. The same burgundy-red theme carries through to the boot. (*The pictures taken in sunlight make the car appear white. Please review those additional photos taken in the shade and you will see the true Magnolia colour against a white wall) This is a well-maintained example by a long-standing client of ours. It presents in excellent condition. In 2019 the car was sent to us to "attend to whatever is necessary" and so some $25,000 was invested to bring all major and minor services up to date, ensure all operational features were working as should (AC, electrics etc) and any cosmetic issues, even though minor, were attended to. The car now presents in top mechanical and operational condition. Important costly items such as the hydraulics and brakes are fully inspected and serviced as required. This includes checking of all brake hoses and system pressure tested and bled. Brakes pumps tested, new accumulators and suspension spheres fitted, calipers and pads serviced. It is ready to drive and enjoy. The odometer shows a low 36,000 miles and although this is not verifiable, the mileage is commensurate with the condition (particularly when you look at the condition of the interior, under-hood, brake pedal etc). It is very quiet and smooth on the road without any of the typical "thumps" and "rattles" typical of lesser maintained examples of this model. The interior was freshened up as part of its review in 2019. The leather is original but was reconnolised for consistency in colour and presentation (dark leathers like red, burgundy, black, brown and blues, tend to "naturally fade"). It now presents quite beautifully and certainly very rich in appearance. The burr walnut wood on the dash was refinished by Park-Ward Motors and presents flawlessly and truly "as-new". The doors and rear quarters appear to have been refinished at some point prior - not us - and present to factory finish. It was done correctly and to Rolls-Royce standards. We guess some 10 years ago and besides some minor "seat-belt marks" on the door cappings. Again, the dash is perfect. The burl walnut in this example has a deep red hue and is truly magnificent. The convertible top and head lining is in good condition with only slight fade in the rear window. The original Wilton wool carpets with leather binding are also in good condition. Likewise is the dash and top-roll. The car had a new set of Hankook 235/75 white-wall tyres fitted in 2018 and the stainless hubcaps are excellent with minimal to no imperfections. All remaining bright-work is in good condition. Under the bonnet, the presentation is amazing. It has not been precision detailed but simply kept clean and tidy throughout its life. The under-bonnet heat pads are the originals in good condition. As you would expect, this Corniche comes with its original jack, correct tools and operating manual. The car is of very high standard and is an easy 10 out of 10 driver rating.
