  • Arguably the ultimate 1970s and 1980s status symbol of wealth and success, the Rolls-Royce Corniche was a car sought after by many but one only the fortunate few could afford. Designed and intended to be enjoyed by their lucky owners in warm-weather climates, each Corniche took four months to be hand-built, with two weeks spent on the convertible top alone. With a list price of over $200,000, each car utilized only the finest materials Britain had to offer, including Wilton wool carpeting, Connolly leather, and carefully selected burl walnut veneer.

    The magnificent 1981 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible featured here is finished in the stunning factory color combination of Mason’s Black over a Red Connolly leather interior and a black power folding convertible top. Just released from a prominent California collection where it has been beautifully maintained and preserved. This incredible motorcar has spent its entire life in the dry climate of Texas and California and has only been driven a mere 36,000 miles from new. This investment grade 1981 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible has been incredibly well-preserved and is among one of the nicest examples we have brought to market in some time. I personally believe the investment potential of these hand-built works of art will grow beyond your imagination. For all of you who are not familiar, Rolls-Royce no longer exists as it has for the past hundred years; it is now owned by BMW and models are being mass-produced. The days of cars being handcrafted by artisans in Crewe are now just a fond memory. This particular car was built at a time when Rolls-Royce was truly building the world’s finest motorcars with the care and craftsmanship evident in every detail. We are proud to offer this stunning 1981 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible to the most demanding collector, investor, or enthusiast who appreciates low miles and superior condition!

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
