1978 Rolls Royce

The Rolls-Royce Corniche is a two-door, front-engine, rear wheel drive luxury automobile produced by Rolls-Royce Motors from 1971 to 1995. Available as coupé or convertible, used the standard Rolls-Royce V8 engine with an aluminium-silicon alloy block and aluminium cylinder heads with cast iron wet cylinder liners. The Corniche received a mild restyling in the spring of 1977. Difference included rack-and-pinion steering, alloy and rubber bumpers, aluminium radiator, oil cooler and a bi-level air conditioning system was added. Corniche models received Bosch KE/K-Jetronic fuel injection in 1977. This engine, called the L410I, produced approximately 237 hp at just above 4,000 rpm for a top speed of 190 km/h (118 mph).


This is a truly magnificent automobile that has both the element of luxury and sportiness. It is very smartly finished in a burnt red exterior with magnolia colored leather interior. There is plenty of room to fit 4 passengers in comfort for a drive to your favorite restaurante and get a prime parking space. The car has the original owners manual and tools. It has all of the amenities a luxury cars is expected to have including power convertible top, windows, doors, seats, and AC. Also, the AC system has bee updated to accept the modern R34 freon which was a considerable expense. This Corniche spent most of it's life in Florida before moving to Illinois about 10 years ago. We do have currrent ownership maintenance records. The car presents very well overall with few blemishes to be found on external body panels and only light patina on the leather interior. It drives effortlessly as you would expect. This Corniche represents a lot of car for the money and a good investment going forward.
