While you have many manufacturers catering to the luxury segment of car buyers today, back in the Eighties, it was a different scene. Rolls Royce and their Corniche were front runners in the luxury car scene and wowed car buyers for 24 years. It was named after coastal roads in France, and even the name sparked a perception of luxury and class. Take a look at this 1985 Rolls Royce Corniche Drophead Coupe, for instance, with a reported 49,600 miles on the clock; this is Eighties luxury and class in all its glory.
When dealing with a car possessing such grandeur, you need the right exterior color. With this 1985 Rolls Royce Corniche Drophead Coupe and its two-tone exterior, you got grandeur and more. The car sports a light green exterior with the lower portion of the car painted in black; the seller reports that the car was originally grey in color. The convertible top is finished off in black, with the rubber being replaced as well; the convertible top matches the exterior color, and the factory hubcaps present on the car. The seller reports that all four tires have been replaced recently with only 300 miles run since fitment. The beige interior on this 1985 Rolls Royce Corniche Drophead Coupe is where all the luxury and class lie. Hugging you and your passengers as your cruise along is leather seats in excellent condition. The car sports all its original interior trim, with the seller reporting minor cracks on the woodgrain dash. Other luxury features include power windows.
The Rolls Royce Corniche was not a small car; factor in all the luxury and trim it was not light either. There was a solution, and that’s with the legendary L series engine. The L series was perfect as it has proven to be a reliable powertrain since 1959 in multiple models and was retired just two years ago with the Bentley Mulsanne. Powering this 1985 Rolls Royce Corniche Drophead Coupe is the legendary and mighty 6.75 L V8 L series engine. When new, the car could push out 220hp, but you don't need much performance when on a Sunday cruise, and these engines are tuned for low-down torque rather than high-end power. Power is sent to the car's rear wheels through a 3-speed automatic gearbox. The seller reports that the car has new belts and new hoses installed.
