    Maybe some of you have seen this before. This is the kind of off the wall stuff that really sparks my interest. If I had any money I'd bid on it. Dick

        I like that! looks like something that Studebaker could/should have made. but maybe with a V8, but the turbo is cool wonder how it goes.

          Hmm... the ad says it was a business coupe that someone made into a convertible, I don't see any added reinforcing in the pictures.

            I would love to examine this one up close.
            It is sad though that he cut up a business coupe to do this. I hope the top was caved in so that it was actually saved this way. It is rare to see a home grown convertible that has all the details finished.

              I like the look even better than the four seater convertible; looks fast even standing still. I wondered about the underside too... shouldn't he have installed the optional hook and eye latches on the doors for going over bumps and around corners? If I could afford this car, I'd remove those aftermarket guages and get some tweaking (cosmetic at least) done on the top, especially at the front. I hope it has a T86. The single best improvement to my way of thinking would be dual exhausts attached to a Cathcart split exhaust manifold. I wonder what it sound like??
