Don't have an 1800 (yet). Would love to own one restored to factory condition. Did they make a ragtop or are the convertibles an after market mod?

All convertibles are aftermarket mods. The unibody construction requires a good bit of chassis re-enforcement to prevent sagging when chopping the roof. Personaly, I think the roof line is an important part of the 1800 look. The only convertible I've seen that I really liked was a removable hardtop converion using the original roof and rear glass. Sorry, no link handy, but I did run across it online.
