:“All Rolls-Royces & Bentleys offered by the Park-Ward Motors Museum are subject to complete inspection by experienced & trained Rolls-Royce craftsmen. Anything requiring repair is attended to professionally & without compromise. This is something we are very proud of & upon which our reputation is built. Of course you are still buying a used car that is subject to the normal course of age, but our cars are restored, serviced & thoroughly work shopped examples prior to being offered for sale. Then once sold, undergo an intensive predelivery commissioning process to ensure everything is in tip-top shape. So thorough is this process, that we require a minimum 14 day period to complete. No one else selling a Rolls-Royce does this, so it makes good sense to buy thru us. A Rolls-Royce from us is, by far, in much better condition than any other you will typically find. As such, you may not be buying the cheapest price Rolls-Royce but you will certainly be buying the best! This is our promise.”

Description

Rolls-Royce
Corniche II1989 Very desirable combination of Magnolia with honey
tan leather
~ A super immaculate example ~
In perfect timing for the arrival of spring, here is a really
stunning presenting Rolls-Royce Corniche II convertible finished in Magnolia with biscuit/honey
tan Connolly hides. The twin fine lines to the waist-rails are hand-painted in
matching tan.
This is a multiple award, show-winning car.
This Corniche II is
very well known to us having been fully maintained by us by an owner who would
request everything and anything be done without sparing expense. Every service
is completely up to date.
Having been
meticulously maintained by Park-Ward, it truly needs absolutely nothing. Some
$10,000 was spent at its last major service to include mechanical, electrical
and some cosmetic items. Nothing was over-looked, ignored or deferred. I
reiterate, mechanically and operationally, this car needs nothing - guaranteed.
Under the bonnet, the presentation is very clean. It has not been precision
detailed but simply kept clean and tidy throughout its life.
The body of the
car is straight and the paint deep in lustre and consistency. It barely shows
any signs of wear at all with any minor little that can only be seen if you
look hard. It is very shiny without any fading, dents or dings. Rubbers,
mouldings, badges and external fittings are all in excellent condition.
The interior of
this car is stunning. The Connolly leather shows beautifully. The wood throughout is also excellent showing
only some very minor marks on the driver side door capping. Otherwise it can be
comfortably described as excellent showing almost no lacquer cracks, chips or
marks. Carpets, seats, dash and front top-roll are truly excellent and I best
encourage you to look at all the photos to fully appreciate how nicely the
interior presents. The car also had an up-market current technology Pioneer stereo
system fitted.
The convertible top is brand new as of about 3 years ago and as such presents
perfectly. The rear "window" is perfectly clear with no blemishes or
sun fading.
As part of
Park-Ward's maintenance program, all electricals and features & functions
have been inspected so everything is operating as it should; windows, seats,
mirrors, A/C, heater, lights, wipers, etc. Right down to every light bulb in
the dash. This is a true, "take the keys and drive" example with no
additional budget needed to attend to any nuances or gremlins.
Being a
well-maintained example. It is tight to drive, brakes strong and rides as a Corniche
II should.This being a 1989 car represents amongst the best for the series with all engineering upgrades but also just before the introduction of air-bags.
When describing a
car for sale, one should be very careful to use terms like "perfect"
and "flawless" because nothing but a brand new car can be described
this way. That said, this Corniche comes very close to for its age, is of a very
high standard and is an easy 10 out of 10 driver rating. She is simply stunning.
~~ This very elegant Rolls-Royce Corniche II convertible simply
oozes road presence! Being a darling example, it makes for a wonderful addition
to any collection or provide that special touch on your Sunday afternoon drive!
~~International
buyers always welcome ~ we have sold and shipped 100's world-wide.

A note from RRMOTORSINC:
For those Rolls-Royce enthusiasts who have followed my auctions in the past I welcome you all. For those who are new to my adverts and/or the marque, please note that as a serious collector of some 35 years, all my cars are truly described examples. I have my own private Rolls-Royce workshop (not open to the public but dedicated to my own cars and fellow RR enthusiasts) with trained Rolls-Royce craftsmen who are proficient in all aspects. As a team, we are dedicated to the preservation of the marque and as such, any car that leaves the stable is completely inspected and work-shopped to ensure mechanical and operational items are maintained appropriately. We adopt a “keep it original” mentality with pride and confidence, offering after sales technical support and assistance well beyond the sale. Because most of my cars are offered for the pleasures of driving enjoyment it is not always possible or practical to seek perfection (in the true sense of the word) but we do always uphold excellence in whatever we do. Our cars are by no means cheap priced cars but we like to think they are amongst the best. To this end, I firmly believe in the famous adage; “Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten." We hope you do to.
We at Park-Ward Motors – the things we do.
When our Rolls-Royces are commissioned for resale, they are indeed professionally and correctly “fully work-shopped”. No corners are cut. And it is all addressed in true Crewe tradition. There is way too much to list here but to give you an example of our commitment to excellence of the various processes, this is one such example of what we do:
Doors and windows:-
Every car has its interior door panels removed. If the wood is in need of repair (as most are) it is refinished in-house by trained and talented craftsmen at Park-Ward Motors. This is a detailed process of stripping the wood of its old lacquer, repairing the veneer if there is damage, staining the top surface as per Rolls-Royce methodology and refinishing with no less than 25 coats of clear lacquer. Hand wet-sanded and polished between all of its last 15 coats. New window felt guides and wood-to-glass foam seals are fitted. All window mechanisms are checked and serviced for smooth and efficient up and down movement. This includes an electrical modification to rectify the typical “slow window syndrome”. All tracks, chains and gears are lubricated. Where central locking is fitted, these are all serviced to ensure no “solenoid sticking”, another common problem. Units are repaired and or changed as required for refurbished units. Door wiring and door-to-body wiring is checked, repaired and/or replaced as required. The splash plastic on the inside of the doors to protect the leather panels from rain splash from inside the door is replaced with correct specification black plastic as used by the factory. Cut to shape and glued in position as per original. All door hardware is checked and repaired as required including locks, handles and scuttle finishes. The door is reassembled with all items cleaned and polished. The wood refitted and the leather panels are re-Connollised before final fitment.
Take this example and apply it to the many, many different aspects of Rolls-Royce restoration, service and maintenance and you have our dedication to correct and professional vehicle pre-delivery preparation and commissioning.~~ **Please note: As a professional collector and experienced restorer, I have my own Rolls-Royce dedicated workshop with qualified craftsmen on hand; The Park-Ward Motor Museum. As a passionate collector of the marque I take great pride and pleasure in passing on any of these great cars to its next owner (“caretaker”). In so doing, once this Rolls-Royce is sold, I will put the car thru my workshop to ensure that it is mechanically sound and all major features and functions are operating as described even though the car is contractually being sold "as-is". Certain items such as final electrical tests and hydraulic pressure checks are usually left for this stage as these are considered "commissioning procedures". In this case, this will include the air conditioning system of this car. This and considerable other work will be performed after the sale and before delivery. This is all done at NO CHARGE. Who else selling a Rolls-Royce on eBay does this?! Depending on our work load, please allow approximately 14-21 business days for this procedure. For more information on the Park-Ward Motor Museum and our skills, please eBay message me and I would be happy to show you some 100 Rolls-Royces restored to varying levels over the last few years ~~
*Please note this exclusion: the advertised or
"Buy it Now" price is a price whereby we are committed to do repair
work on the car if we see something "not right". This may occur after
the sale and before delivery. It is our commitment to excellence. So, to be
clear, if the agreed selling price is less than 85% of the initial asking
price, then the sale is considered a wholesale "as-is" sale. To put
it simply, and to be fair, a buyer cannot expect to buy "cheap" and
get all the benefits otherwise associated with a retail value type.
**PLEASE
read auction terms and conditions below BEFORE bidding.**~~ Important note: the $2,000 deposit is
due within 24 hours.
If not paid, or if no contact is received within that period, we reserve the
right to offer the car to any other party.~~~~oo00oo~~This
Rolls-Royce is part of a private collection. Although licensed and bonded, I am
not a main-stream retail car dealer or broker; I am a professional car
collector of some 30 years with considerable experience and knowledge of
Rolls-Royce and Bentley Motor Cars. I have along standingreputation
being associated with the marque which I take seriously. I take pride in my
cars and have fun in collecting and restoring them. However, auctions are not a
game so when you place a bid or offer, and you are the winning bidder, please
understand you have entered a binding contract. You cannot bid and win the
auction and expect not to meet the terms and conditions. Bidding and/or winning
does not mean you are expecting me to “hold” the car until you have the
opportunity to inspect it. Any inspection contemplated should be undertaken
BEFORE you bid or make an offer and I openly welcome any potential buyer to
come and personally inspect the car.Please note, however, we do NOT allow
3rd party inspectors because history has sadly proven, they are not worth their
weight in salt. Do not waste your time nor money - come yourself and we will go
over the car in detail with you.Onceyou bid or make an offer, you are
doing so to buy WITHOUT conditions. Your bidcan notbe subject to
anything. A $2000.00 deposit (non-refundable) is required within 24 hours of
the close of the auction and payable by PayPal. The balance of
fundsarerequired within 7 days of the close of the auction and must
be provided by cashier’s check or bank wire. I cannot accept PayPal for the
balance unless you are willing to meet the cost of transfer fees. Full payment
must be made (and payments cleared) before the title and/or the vehicle is
released. All payments are non-refundable. Payments as described above form an
important part of this purchase contract and so, if all the funds are not
received as outlined above, I reserve the right to terminate the transaction
without notice. If there has been any deposit or other part payments received
and I elect to terminate the contract, I reserve the right to keep any such
deposits or payments and resell the vehicle to another bidder or interested
party or re-list the vehicle at any time. To be clear, if you change your mind
for ANY reason and do not complete the transaction in the time-frame required,
you will forfeit your deposit. I am happy to assist with shipping arrangements
on a national and worldwide basis but the winning bidder takes full
responsibility for pickup and/or shipping and at his cost.
As a collector and experienced restorer of the marque, I make every
effort to bring my cars to a high standard. By comparison, my cars are generally
superior to others available but they are by no means perfect. You must expect
some issues. Unless specifically stated, the car is not of show standard but of
nice "driver" condition. Please understand, show cars of this model
cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to achieve and sell for prices
commensurate, so the sale price of this car reflects its relative condition.
You are buying "condition" accordingly. Buyers should not expect to
receiveconcoursquality or "perfect" cars at these prices.
Please also understand, the very nature of these classic Rolls-Royces is such
that it is not always possible to attend to every item, or perhaps I may have
inadvertently overlooked items. Further, and very importantly, these cars are
classic cars also because they are old. So this means a 30 year
oldcar is predominantly comprised of 30 year oldparts. And old
parts will fail. All buyers must understand and expect that things can or will
wear out, break and/or stop functioning without notice. This is even more likely
with hand-built English cars of early technology when compared to the typical
American car of the same vintage. Please note, fitted radio/stereo systems are
usually subject to upgrade by purchasers so I do not ensure operation of these.
Similarly, cruise control systems fitted to these classics were ofan
inferiordesign and I do not check or warrant the operation of these.
Suspension and brakes on these cars are complex. We thoroughly check them and
replace things that are identified faulty. But please understand, by example;
if we change a brake line because it appears aged or faulty, we do NOT at the
same time replace all other hoses because they are of similar age. This is
considered "preventative maintenance". We do not do this unless specifically
requested and is not included in the purchase price. Feel free to ask for this
additional service. Further, a feature or function that is working perfectly
one moment, may decide to play-up the next. After all, it is some 30 years old.
This is the nature of any classic car and especially a Rolls-Royce which was
very "complicated" for its era. For thisreasonit is
necessary for the following condition:
The vehicle is being sold "as-is/where-is" with no warranty
expressed, written or implied. Any descriptions or representations are made
with reasonable judgment and all efforts are made to ensure fair assessment and
accuracy but they are for descriptive and identification purposes only and are
not to be construed as a warranty of any type. The seller shallnot be
responsible for errors in description, authenticity, genuineness, or defects
herein and makes no warranty in connection therewith. If any aspect of the
description contradicts what can be seen in the photos, then the photos shall
prevail as the reference point. No allowance or set aside will be made on
account of any incorrectness, unforeseen imperfection, defect or damage. It is
the responsibility of the buyer to have satisfied himself as to the condition
and value and to bid based upon that judgment solely. The seller shall and will
make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects at the buyer’s
request prior to the close of the auction. Seller assumes no responsibility for
any repairs regardless of any written or oral statements about the vehicle.Being
a classic car in excess of 10 years of age, in mostUS states, the mileage
may be recorded as “exempt”. In thisregardthe seller makes no
warranties as to the accuracy of the mileage indicated or shown and accepts no
responsibility for any discrepancy with independent reports such as Carfax,
AutoCheck, etc.In this regard the seller makes no warranties as
to the accuracy of the mileage indicated or shown. I can hold the vehicle up to
30 days while you arrangeshippingbut you must immediatelyinsureit.
I will not bear any responsibility for any additional costs including storage,
transportation, or repair after the close of the auction. Whereas I am happy to
store the car in excess of 30 days from auction end, a cost of $35 per day
shall apply beyond 30 days of auction end. Also, you must remember that this is
a classic+/-30 year oldvehicle, and while it is up to you, I do not
recommend that you just “hop in and drive it across the country” untilyou
have familiarised yourself with the car. At least, I have never done that. I
have alwaysprofessionally transported the cars in enclosed carriers from
where I bought themtomy home.
PLEASE; IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ABIDE BY THESE TERMS, CONTACT ME BEFORE
YOU CONTEMPLATE DOING SO AS, RESPECTFULLY, THERE CAN BE NO EXCEPTIONS.
I am sorry if these terms seem harsh but there seem to be some very
unrealistic buyers out there - fortunately, onlyfewof these people
exist but those that do can make life difficult, so it appears EVERYTHING needs
to spelled out. Very simply put, this is an old car being offered for sale. It
is not new and is subject to the perils of age. Further, Rolls-Royces are not
without nuances, idiosyncrasies and they are renown for a host of design issues
which can make them not inexpensive to maintain. This is well documented in
many circles. You need to be a special and considerate type of purchaser to
ownaRolls-Royce.
Their down-side is part of the fun in owning them! As the old saying goes;
"we love to hate them and hate to love them!" So, please respect the
terms and conditions when you bid.

VALUES: Rolls-Royce and Bentley values vary wildly, entirely dependent on their condition. There are, of course, other aspects that add or subtract from their values – Long Wheel Base versus regular, the year which dictated certain technical changes, etc. The colour alone, for example can make a big difference. And, of course, provenance. So for the benefit of new-comers to the marque please see the approximate guide to values based on a particular model below. Please remember, these are “plus-or-minus” figures:
Year: 1989
Make: Rolls-Royce
Model: CornicheFamous car: $80,000+
Exceptional: $70-80,000
Excellent: $60-70,000
Good: $40-60,000
Average: $30-40,000
Fair: $20-30,000
Basket case: < $20,000
Hopefully this will provide a reference point for the Rolls-Royce being featured in this listing as it compares to the range of different condition examples.Please note, a very poor condition example that is tired and not maintained can easily demand some $30,000 in restoration to make it a "nice" example but remember, it will be no longer original. So don't be fooled by "cheap buys". For any specific questions about this unique example of a Rolls-Royce, please do not hesitate to contact me.
According to the London based investment research firm; Historic Automobile Group International, classic cars have appreciated on average, 13% per year since 1980, whilst overall stock values averaged an 11% gain over the same period. The following graph charts the value of collectible cars vs. the S&P500.
