Frank Sinatra’s 1984 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible Getting Auctioned Off

This 1984 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible was owned by none other than Frank Sinatra, one of the all-time best artists, as his film and music career stretched successfully across six decades.

The car will be offered at auction at the NEC Classic Motor Show Sale between the 10th and the 11th of November, and could fetch anywhere between £105,000 ($133,800) and £125,000 ($159,288).

“Frank Sinatra is a name that has remained prominent in the world of music and culture and even since his death in 1998, Sinatra’s films and music are still revered as some of the greatest of all time,” stated Arwel Richards, classic car specialist at Silverstone Auctions. ” Offering Ol’ Blue Eyes’ Rolls-Royce at auction for the first time in its history presents an amazing opportunity for film, music and car fans alike. The influence Sinatra still holds over the music and film industry to this day is real evidence of the respect and love he garnered throughout his career.”

The Corniche was imported to the U.S. by Rolls-Royce on November 13, 1984, and presented to Sinatra for his 70th birthday by fellow Rat Pack members Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin. Its Mason Black coachwork and red leather interior with rear picnic tables made for a rare sighting on a convertible Rolls-Royce model.

Work on the Rolls included refinished wooden door cappings, as well as some maintenance for the Mason Black paint job. Most of the efforts however went into its 6.7-liter engine, the suspension and the braking system.

Altogether, no less than £47,000 ($60,000) were invested into keeping the car in tip top shape after it was brought back to the UK, where it was put through an extensive recommissioning program by Performance and Prestige Cars, Marques Prestige Car Services and Rolls-Royce and Bentley specialists Colbrook.
