Classic Car Overview

This particular 1983 Rolls Royce Corniche convertible is believed to be a 3 owner car and is 1 of 3,239 built during the production run from 1971 through 1987. Retaining copies of its shipping invoice and build sheets as well as being freshly serviced and inspected and finished in one of the most eye-catching of color combinations Ive seen in awhile, featuring a black and silver exterior over black hides with and black Wilton carpeting! A remarkable example that shows just 44,593 miles on the odometer today and has been lovingly cared for by our consignor during his ownership tenure. Exterior Nicely preserved...a color change from solid black to the striking two-tone black and silver, (a much classier look in this writers opinion), color shows a few chips that are normal for the cars age. Overall, it is well done. Chrome and badging look clean and shiny and the beautiful Rolls Royce grille in near perfect condition and the flying lady atop, front the bonnet. Speaking of which, it is long and luxurious as it makes its way back to the large greenhouse, which is covered with a wonderfully preserved black vinyl convertible top with a stained and hazed plastic rear window and a rebuilt top motor. The large boot deck with proper badging curves downward and frames the oversized oval/rectangle design taillights. Pristine Rolls Royce logo-ed wheel covers have a blue band near the center, and wheels are wrapped with nearly new Avon radial rubber. All in all, in cracking shape mate. Interior Comparable to a bank safe door, it swings effortlessly, but its weight can be witnessed when doing so, but you can have the chauffeur open it for you. Black hide, wood burl, and Wilton carpet make up the panels of the doors which house shiny inserts for the power windows, and door handle. Placing your bum firmly in the black hide covered buckets which are nearly new looking, and present with only wrinkling from age and youll get accustomed to plentiful padding. Armrests over the center console, which houses every control you could possibly need regarding the seats. Infinitely adjustable seating, power locks and an ashtray are seen here as well, all framed in chrome and black plastic. Moving to the rear bench there will be plenty of room for the queen bee and her gentleman caller. Glorious armrests grace the sides of the black and black piped bench and include ash receptacles as well as more burl. The dash is loaded with instrumentation, climate controls, burl, and leather. It presents very clean as does the black Wilton wool carpeting ...blimey! Drivetrain A pop of the bonnet and we are greeted by a clean and spit shined engine bay. Grabbing the center of attention, is the 6.75 Liter V8 that is original to the car. It sports Bosch K-Jetronic electronic fuel injection, a 3-speed TH400 automatic transmission and a 2.69 geared rear axle. All quite right! Youre bloody well right. Undercarriage The undercarriage is well preserved, a heavy coating of black paint and undercoating for the suspension, steel flooring, and frame with nary a sign of any rust or structural problems. Independent suspension, and 4-wheel power disc brakes, and we are all buttoned up. Bobs your uncle. Drive-Ability I had the pleasure to take this car out for a tool around Morgantown, and it drove swimmingly. Rides like a dream and handles just as well. I noted that the horn, high beams, and the radio were inoperable as well as the right rear window going up and down slow, otherwise it was a smashing, (thankfully the Brit version of this word!), car to drive, and during the short jaunt, received several waves and whistles, but they could have been for the spirit of salesman Sir Lawrence, who sometimes accompanies us on our decidedly British drives. We have a really nice car here, in great low mileage condition, owners books in original leather pouch, copies of the original paperwork from across the pond, wheel beauty rings, and some service records. Go ahead live it up in a low production number rarely seen Rolls!
