This is a superb example of this world-renowned British Marque offered for sale after full mechanical and cosmetic restoration. This rare Rolls-Royce Corniche Coupe (only 1,108 built between 1971 and 1981) was first delivered to San Fransisco, until purchase by the previous Owner in Florida in 1996. The car has lived it's entire life in California and Florida.
The Corniche is the Series One, steel bumper type. It is fitted with the mighty 6.75L Rolls-Royce V-8 with twin Su Carburetors, paired with the Turbo Hydramatic 350 (sourced from General Motors). The four-wheel independent suspension with coil springs is augmented with a hydraulic self-levelling system (using the same system as did CitroŽn, but without pneumatic springs, and with the hydraulic components built under licence by Rolls-Royce), on the rear wheels only. Four wheel ventilated disc brakes are provided.
The strong V-8 runs out smoothly, revs smooth and strong and maintains great oil pressure.
All gauges, switches and lights work properly. Please see the attached videos showing the operation and driving of the car.
This is stunning surviving example of this classic. It is all original, showing very little wear from its 80,000+ miles.
The paint and body are excellent, no scratches or dings. The interior, hood and boot are also in great shape. The Everflex roof is in like-new condition - Remarkable!
The car includes original hardcover Owner's books and spare keys!

Rolls-Royce has dropped a third teaser for its upcoming coupe that we'll be seeing in a few weeks at the Geneva Motor Show. A couple of weeks ago, we saw the 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith in a shadowy profile shot, and now we're getting an (admittedly limited) idea of what the rear of the car will look like.
As suggested by a recent set of spy shots, the 2014 Wraith should have a rear-end styling very similar - if not identical - to the Rolls-Royce Ghost, which this car is a coupe version of. In typical Rolls-Royce fashion, the British automaker promises that this new model will deliver plenty of power, style and drama, though it's declining to get more specific about what that power is (other than to say it will be "more than ample"). We have no indication that the engine won't be the 563-horsepower, 6.6-liter V8 that's in the Ghost, but we'll have to wait until next month to find out for sure.
Wonder why Rolls-Royce makes so many special editions for the Chinese market? Probably because China is fast becoming its largest market, with the dealerships in Beijing and Shanghai regularly proving able to move more high-end metal than any other Rolls dealer in the world. Little wonder then that, less than two months after releasing the Golden Sunbird edition, Rolls-Royce Bespoke is back again with another special Ghost just for China.
This time it's called the Canton Glory edition. It was introduced recently at Auto Guangzhou, and pays tribute to the Canton Tower in the same city. Two examples were made with a two-tone color scheme contrasting burgundy with either a blueish silver or white. Other features include Guangzhou's Five Rams emblem in the coachline, veneer panels, headrests and dashboard.
We don't doubt Rolls will find (or probably already has found) a pair of Chinese industrialists to gladly take these special editions home. But for those looking for their own unique touches, the British automaker has also brought its Bespoke Atelier to China for the first time, outlining the range of possibilities open to their moneyed customers.
Those of you that took our tip and tuned in for last night's Academy Awards may have caught the latest iteration of the famous Grey Poupon commercials, featuring a pair of Rolls-Royce sedans and their condiment-loving stewards. The update to the 1981 commercial was only shown in part on television, however, as the mustard company directed viewers to its website to see the entirety of the Lost Footage spot. Of course if you didn't bother then, you can just scroll down to see the full-length two-minute commercial here.
As you're viewing, note that the Grey Poupon marketers did not, it would appear, get official sanction from Rolls-Royce this time around. While the Rollers in the commercial have all sorts of James Bond-like accouterments, they don't appear to have the official Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornaments, for example, and they have restyled lights and grilles. Check out the new spot below, and see if it stacks up to the iconic Pardon Me original.
