This is a timeless symbol of elegance. The 1989 Rolls-Royce Corniche II convertible was a custom coachwork car that was built by a handful of experts and only delivered to the very elite. It is such a desirable jewel for your garage that a low-mileage example like this is constantly in demand.

White is arguably the best color for a classic Rolls-Royce to be both classically elegant and never out of fashion. And while the white is understated, the red pinstripe gives that hint of free spirit rebellion that makes for a great grand touring machine. Of course, what that pinstripe also does is highlight the fit of the body panels. It reminds you of the true quality of a flagship car from a brand renowned all over the world. Remember, any Rolls-Royce is far from common, but the Corniche was personally crafted by special order at the historic Mulliner Park Ward coachworks in London (this was one of the final years cars were shaped at this historic facility.) And as you look over the full package, you can see the kind of attention to detail that makes a Rolls-Royce command respect everywhere it goes. The waterfall grille brightly stands at attention. The finish understands why being too flashy gets you called "Nouveau riche." And this rarer Corniche II introduces special elements like color-matched bumpers with chrome inserts and stylish Bentley Turbo-style wheels.

The convertible top has the kind of exceptional insulation to get this called a drop-head coupe. But in a car like this, it really is better to be open to the world. So you can automatically take it down and put the fitted soft tonneau in place to have an elegant open car experience. After all, there is an instant attraction to the full red leather interior. And it's a Rolls-Royce level of elegance where the exterior is white with red pinstriping, and the interior upholstery is red with white piping. This convertible was crafted with plenty of thoughtful touches, including a second door latch so that the rear seat passengers are never stranded. Luxury also means plenty of features, including power windows, power locks, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo w/CD changer, and provisions for air conditioning (it is an R134a system, but it will need servicing to blow cold again.) The front seats power adjust and keep your ideal memory settings so that you are always ready for a road trip. And everything from the large trunk to cruise control makes this an ideal weekend getaway machine. So because this is a Rolls-Royce for drivers, there's also an upgraded Nardi steering wheel.

The fuel-injected 6.75-liter V8 under the hood is a staple of Rolls-Royce luxury. You can see from the clean and correct presentation that this one has been maintained correctly, and the way it runs and drivers reaffirm good care. It has the smooth and confident operation you expect from a Rolls-Royce. And since the car has averaged less than 1,200 miles annually, you can feel the difference of a car that hasn't spent its life as a daily commuter. The three-speed automatic transmission was built to smoothly and effortlessly work with this high torque motor to make sure this drop-top has a dignified hustle. And the fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes w/ABS are all there to give you a powerful and poised feeling on the road.

This is a timeless classic that comes ready to traverse high society. Don't miss out, call today!
