This is one gorgeous left hand drive 1981 Rolls Royce Corniche Convertible / Drop-head Coupe LHD, an early fuel-injected example built for the Californian market and the very last one bearing a chassis number ending with "C". Finished in Ivory with chocolate brown trim, this is chassis DRL50736C allegedly first owned by Michelle Pfeiffer's first husband who used the car for his daily commute from his Palm Springs residence to his office in downtown LA. Second owner was a retired engineer who used her mainly for his twice weekly trip to the Beverly Hills Golf Club.
I am the third owner and have owned her for the last 16 years having imported her from Southern California. Since arrival, the car spent most of its life at specialist garages where it was essentially converted back to European spec and now drives as it should with plenty of power, a nice change from its lumpy behaviour of 16 years ago. The Bosch fuel injection was also rebuilt in Germany and many other works were carried out by marque specialists in the UK and abroad. Cosmetically, the car was already very pretty, sound and elegant and apart from 3 new sets of Avon OEM tyres, a new hood, a new boot cover and some work to the leather trim, the body has remained untouched and is still rust-free having been garaged all its life.
The car has just had a completely new stainless steel exhaust system fitted, sounds wonderful and is a joy to drive even though I have only put 4, 000 miles on her in the last 16 years, including a trip to Yorkshire, a couple of trips to the RREC annual rally and a very pleasant trip to Normandy. I always intended to take her to the actual Corniche on the French Riviera but it looks as though this will never happen as I have now lost interest so this is a car for someone else to enjoy straight away with extensive work done during my ownership (about 30K if my memory serves we well) to bring to this level of reliability. Supplied with its build sheets, stack of bills during my and previous ownerships, this example is sure to please wherever it goes and give its next custodian many decades of proud ownership. Private reg not included but available by separate negotiation.
Additional pics on request.
