*From a private estate in California
*Inspected on arrival and issues dealt with
*Engine recently fully serviced; brakes and suspension overhauled


The Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible combines grandeur and elegant styling with extraordinary value when compared to many of its contemporaries. This 1984 example comes from California where it had spent some time in storage, our vendor says. Bodywork and ivory paintwork, along with trim and glass and wheels/tyres, are said to be very good. The interior – Mocha piped in ivory – is very good as is the trim and the inside of the power hood, which is said to be fully operating. The engine has recently been fully serviced with a kit from Flying Spares and is rated as good for starting, running and appearance. Gearbox and axles are rated as very good: the suspension and brakes have been overhauled (all 4 spheres, brake pump and seals replaced) and are rated as excellent. The car's electrics have been inspected and the vendor says all windows, mirrors, seats, wipers, heater etc are working. Offered complete with full Rolls-Royce Factory build records running to around 63 pages. Due to the backlog at DVLA the vehicle is offered with HMRC Nova letter and California title. All due taxes have been paid, and the car is also offered with an owner's manual and service booklet.
