Year:

  1994

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is tremendously proud to offer this extremely rare and extraordinarily clean 1994 Rolls Royce Corniche IV 4-door convertible. The car has been owned by only one family since it was purchased new. This is an excellent opportunity to own a stunning piece of Rolls Royce history that car is new-to-market and has never before been offered for sale before.

This particular 1994 Rolls Royce Corniche IV was converted by the famed coachbuilder Niko Michael in 1995 to a 4-door convertible. It was purchased brand new in 1994 by a very notable and prominent Rolls Royce collector. He almost immediately had the car sent to Niko Michael in Port Washington, NY to do the conversion, which was completed one year later after more than 5,000 man hours at a cost of over $250,000 in 1995 dollars. The quality of workmanship on the car is unprecedented and superior to even the original Rolls Royce coachwork. The car is finished in Arctic white with a Parchment Tan interior, and a tan top. This is the correct and original color combination confirmed by the codes on the data tag attached to the bonnet. This car is said to be the last of only two Corniche 4-door conversions completed my Niko Michael and the only Corniche IV.

As one can see in the photos and the video the car is in excellent cosmetic condition. The car currently has 32,785 miles and is in impeccable mechanical condition as well. Every single item, switch, accessory, and function we tried works properly. The previous owner had purchased over 40 brand new Rolls Royce’s over the years and they all received “no expense spared” maintenance. He also frequently used and drove his cars so any needs they had were always addressed immediately. There are receipts for maintenance and repairs for this Corniche IV that total over $37,500, including a full engine out service in April of 2017.

We are offering a rare opportunity to purchase a very special Rolls Royce at an unbelievable value. Another Niko Michal Rolls Royce Convertible just sold at the the RM Sotheby's auction this year for $252,000. This Corniche IV has been stored in an indoor climate controlled environment since day one. The original books and manuals, pictured below, are still with the car. Even the original stereo demonstration cassette tape is still with the car in the original wrapper. The original tools are also included and pictured in the trunk below.

This Rolls Royce has a clean AutoCheck report, which is pictured below and shows no accident history. The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the one family owner history, the AutoCheck report, and the clear Ohio title showing the mileage as "Actual." Please view all of the photos, video, and other information below to get a true sense of how nice this Niko Michael Rolls Royce Corniche IV really is.

As a side note, this Rolls Royce is not a dealer auction vehicle.  We hand pick each car after careful inspection.  Our classics come from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.  We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected.  Please take the time to scrutinize each picture.  We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase.  If you have a question about the Corniche IV, just give us a call.

Exterior

The Artic White exterior is in excellent condition. As one can see in the photos, the finish has dazzling gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. The chrome, stainless trim, and other bright-work look excellent with a brilliant finish and no corrosion. The wheels are in beautiful condition with a nice finish and no curb rash. The Michelin whitewall tires really compliment the look of this car. The convertible top looks beautiful with no stains. There are some very small imperfections around the car that were too tiny to show up in pictures, but nothing that is really noticeable from about five feet away. The underside of the Corniche is exceptionally clean. We have included many photos of the bottom of the car to show how great it looks. We have also included photos of the rockers, lower front and rear quarter panels, and the other areas most prone to rust to show how clean it is.

The Rolls Royce looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

 

Interior

The Parchment Leather interior of the Corniche IV is in exceptional condition. The seats are in excellent shape and look just in person as they do in the photos with no split seams, tears, or excessive wear. Please note that these are the original seats and skins, not some cheap aftermarket covers or replacements. The sheepskin floor mats look great. The carpet is also in fantastic condition with no stains, rips, or holes. The carpet on the door panels is in good shape and not faded. All of the carpet in the car is also original. The gauge faces are clean and crisp and the gauge lenses are crystal clear. All of the gorgeous wood trim looks superb with no peeling or delamination. The door panels are in excellent condition, fit well to the doors, and the door pulls are in tact. The dash and console look awesome with no splits, sun fading, or cracks. The original radio works well, sounds clear, gets good reception, and the power antenna works. Most importantly the dash has never been cut or modified for an aftermarket installation. The trunk is totally clean and complete. The tools, jack, and even the spare light bulbs are still present and stowed correctly in the trunk. This Rolls Royce has never been smoked in, there are no burns marks and no aroma of cigarettes at all. Rolls Royce and Bentley interiors from this era are not known to wear well and the spectacular condition of this original interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this car has received throughout it's life.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


Mechanical

This Rolls Royce appears to be in very nice mechanical condition. This car has experienced the best maintenance money could buy. As stated above there are over $37,500 in receipts for maintenance and repairs from the just the past few years. The engine starts right away every time and runs well. It is an excellent driver that feel great on the the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to a stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that it runs great, there are no strange noises or vibrations, and the car performs quite nice overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The brakes were recently serviced by the previous owner. There is no blue smoke when starting or driving the car. It runs cool and does not overheat. Also, the engine bay is clean, nicely detailed, and correct as one can see from the photos.

Every single item, switch, accessory, and function we have tried on this Rolls Royce works properly. Please note in the video that all of the warning lights work properly. They light up when the key is first turned on and then go off when the engine is started. There are no "check engine" or other warning lights that stay on. The a/c works and blows cold and there is a receipt for a/c service included with the car. All of the gauges work as do all the exterior lights, indicators, wipers, power locks, all the power windows, both power mirrors in all directions, and the power seats in all directions. This Rolls Royce has a horn with two selectable tones that both work. One can observe to complete operaton of the power top in the video. This Rolls Royce is very smooth and has plenty of power with the V8 engine. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the top down on a beautiful day.

This Rolls Royce runs and drives just as well as it looks.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1994 Rolls Royce Corniche IV is in spectacular condition. This is a one in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a piece of Rolls Royce history that has never been offered for sale before. The excellent original condition, the amazing rarity, the very low original mileage, and wonderful history make this Rolls Royce especially important and impossible to duplicate. This car always gets a ton of attention driving down the road. The classic Rolls Royce's are becoming highly collectible and the market on them is on the rise. They are secure and wise investments for a collector. As stated above, another Niko Michael Rolls Royce convertible just sold for $252,000. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

 

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
