This 1991 Rolls-Royce Corniche III is finished in Tudor Red over a Parchment leather interior and is powered by a 6.75-liter V8 paired with a three-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes a cream convertible soft top, automatic air conditioning, cruise control, an AM/FM cassette stereo, a CD player, a Sprint car phone, heated and power-adjustable front seats, and 15″ alloy wheels. The car was purchased new by the seller from Transco, Inc. in High Point, North Carolina, and now shows 36k miles. This Corniche III is offered with a window sticker, manufacturer’s literature, 1991 sales paperwork, a tool kit, spare parts, a clean Carfax report, and a clean North Carolina title in the seller’s name.
The body is finished in Tudor Red (2K) with contrasting pinstriping and features a power-operated Cream soft top along with color-matched bumpers. Additional exterior details include a Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, a chrome grille and headlight surrounds, and a third brake light assembly on the decklid.
Alloy 15″ wheels wear full chrome covers and are mounted with 235/75 Hankook Optimo thin-whitewall tires. Braking is handled by power-assisted four-wheel discs with ABS. The tie rods were replaced in preparation for the sale, according to the seller.
The cabin features power-adjustable and heated front seats upholstered in Parchment leather with St. James Red piping that extends to the rear seats and door panels. Red carpets are accompanied by burl wood trim accents on the center console, dash, and doors. Additional appointments include automatic air conditioning, cruise control, an AM/FM cassette stereo, a CD player, and a Sprint car phone mounted within the center console. The windows were repaired and the air conditioning system was overhauled in June 2020 at Bentley High Point in North Carolina in addition to installation of a water tap overhaul kit and replacement of the compressor, receiver drier, and hose suction and drive belt air pump assemblies. The seller states that the wood trim on doors has been re-stained and the stereo works intermittently.
The leather-wrapped steering wheel frames a 150-mph speedometer and a tachometer with a 4,500-rpm redline, while gauges for oil pressure, fuel level, and coolant temperature are mounted in the center of the dash. Ancillary instrumentation in the center stack includes an analog clock as well as ambient temperature and voltage gauges. The five-digit odometer shows 35500k miles.
The 6.75-liter V8 features a cast aluminum block and cylinder heads along with Bosch MK-Motronic fuel injection.
The window sticker lists factory equipment, colors, and a suggested retail price of $226,700. Manufacturer’s literature, 1991 sales paperwork, a tool kit, and various spare parts are also included in the sale.
