1989 Rolls-Royce Corniche

Our really quite beautiful 1989 Rolls-Royce Corniche II Convertible is offered in its original (and arguably the best!) colours of Windsor Blue with Magnolia fine lines, Magnolia hide trim, and dark Blue everflex hood, carpets and lambswool rugs.

In current ownership since January 1997 from Hanwells Car Centre, London, this fine motorcar (in partnership with a striking 1996 Bentley Continental R) served its owner well allowing him to arrive in style and comfort to undertake his duties as Chairman of Yorkshire’s Cricket Committee at Headingly, a role he held after retiring from a successful playing career!

It has travelled just 50,700 miles, with little use in recent years.  The service history was consistent and enviable up to 2008, after which, whilst sensible maintenance has still been conducted where necessary, fewer than 2,000 miles were travelled before the next considerable service in August 2017, which also saw the replacement of the auxiliary drive belts.

Wanting for very little other than an enthusiastic new owner and a suitably fitting place to live, we strongly commend this car to you for its sheer presence and unashamed ability to embarrass much younger supposedly ‘sports’ cars with its impressive power and grace.

Please be respectful that this car has been little used in recent years and therefore we welcome your thorough inspections, however, we have no reason whatsoever to doubt the capabilities and proficiencies of this substantial motorcar.
