Its usually a while between discoveries - this the first 64 Daytona convertible that's come up in about 6 months or so, spotted on craigslist in Santa Rosa. The seller at the time noted it's fitted with the 259cu. 8 cylinder engine runs super strong loves cruising at 60mph. Floors solid, everything works except the convertible hydraulic pump needs rebuilding. A family car from NJ shipped to California in 2012 with 3,000 miles now reads 5,200. Since then complete new brakes (original soft shoes) transmission serviced new gaskets.
This is one of 374 units built by Rolls-Royce between 2000 and 2002, and is the very last of the hand built Rolls-Royce Corniche vehicles. At the time this car was built, it's very difficult to find anything that rivalled the opulent luxury and style
This particular car is located in Las Vegas, Nevada, and has very low mileage as you would expect of such a unique and collectible vehicle. The car retains its original and immaculate Sunrise Pearl paint matched with perfect Beige Connolly leather trim. It has been regularly serviced, and is in immaculate mechanical condition ready for the next Rolls Royce enthusiast to enjoy.
With the low production numbers, attention to detail and unrivalled (timeless) style, the Corniche of this era was always an instant classic. Prices are starting to reflect the special status of this Rolls, and if you have the means for this sort of vehicle as a collector, it should be on your list.
A fresh rostisserie restorationcompleted on this numbers matching 64 Lark convertible. Strato blue with blue bucket seat interior, with vanity. Column shifted flightomatic power steering, manual drum brakes, 373 twin traction rear end, 259 V8, 2 barrel single exhaust. These are an exceptionally rare car these days, and it's great to see another on the register, restored. Check out the others on the register below.
Spotted on Ebay Australia in May 2019 - must be the only Chrysler LeBaron Town and Country Convertible in Australia, or at most one of a handful, given there were only around 1,100 built. This example is in excellent condition, has air conditioning, power steering and power windows, upholstery and interior show almost no wear. Power top still works. This is something a little different which you don't ever see down under.. An interesting collector car if you're into 80s American vehicles. I think this is the first one on Classicregister.com!
My car was originally LHD but was factory converted to RHD as the US market did not want the 3.6ltr 6 cylinder manual variant. There are visual signs of this where the front indicators are the larger type + a blanking plate on the passenger door where the wing mirror controls used to be. The colour has since changed in 2009 from Cranbury (CEE) to a slightly redder finish. In the U.K. there are only about 275 left of this variant according to cars that are taxed or on sorn.
A clean and original example of the 300CE Cabriolet - an appreciating classic. This one was advertised in April 2019 asking $17,000 USD. Looks well worn but qute original - a few items of the trim and hood could do with a tidy up. Looks to be finished in Arctic White. If you have one, add yours to the register here :)
Another Daytona convertible spotted for sale in 2019 - this oe located in Iowa. At the time of sale, the seller noted it was a dry Arizona car. The power convertible top is very nice and functioning as it should. New styled wheels and tires, new exhaust and muffler, this is a turnkey car ready to be shown or just driven and enjoyed.

It's rare you see these over in Europe - however, this example was offered on autoscout in Fabruary 2019. Asking EUR 23,000, this original stratos blue car looks in excellent condition, with only some modification being undertaken to the trunk lid. Unfortunately we haven't been able to obtain the chassis number for this example.
The 10th example on our Studebaker Daytona convertible register.
Another nice example of the Chummy - this one offered for sale in New Zealand, spotted in February 2019 asking $15,995. Not a lot of work required to get this one in top shape, the seller at the time noting it was off the road for 28 years many of which were in a Museum and has been garaged all its life. All weather fittings including a hood envelope. It is the first of the ignition coil model with the chrome radiator surround.
