...and what do we all think of this one...?

Oh dear! Good luck with the BIVA. On a positive note, I'm glad to hear from an expert that cutting away most of the rear pillars and the rear section of the roof frame doesn't compromise the integrity of the base unit in any way.

Probably won't need an MoT, if the "conversion" was carried out that long ago.

Bloody awful though. If you're going to take the roof off, do it properly..

It would have to have been done 1988 or earlier, and you would have to prove it was done then, which isn't easy if it wasn't a conversion that was registered with DVLA at the time. Why would anyone bother?

The picture of the hood up made my eyes bleed. I like that they treied to maintain strength with the Targa style beam, but it seems a lot of these conversions fall down with the hood.

Yep me too, it looks OK with the hood down but you think they could have put more thought into the hood closure look especially as they left so much metal work in place to do a good job on closure.

I think the dodgy roof treatment is just a distraction from the other problems - what about the fact that it appears to have a 2000 SC engine in what should be a 2200 TC, the proliferation of tacky pretend wood stuck all over the interior, and the extra zero incorrectly added to the end of the price tag!

at 450 GBP it might let some bod go the whole hog and cut the rest of the top off and make it a true convertible , then that would be 450 pounds well spent?:p
