That's just plain SICK!!!!! How's it look with the top up?

That's usually the deal breaker for me unless they stretch the top really tightly to get it to fit like it should. but I have to say that it looks Beautiful with the top down!

Who did the work on it?

Thanks for the top up picture. They did a Fantastic job on your WBSP! That top looks as good up as it does down. They stretched that top tight and it fits like it should!

You've got one Gorgeous Challenger there! Thanks for sharing it!

I was in Florida getting my Mr. Norms gills installed and there was a 2014 RT in red that had the convertible conversion. Its alot of money , I was told it was 40k for the car and then it was 40k for a convertible and supercharger addition. The owner had already 80K+ into the car and had not even driven it yet. I liked that they added electric quarter glass windows. The trunk did have alot of real estate used for the convertible mechanisms.

This is amazing! I always thought removing the roof compromises integrity but it seems the Challenger has a solid chassis away from the roof
Droptop does a lot of body reinforcement before they cut the top off. Behind the rear seat, underneath and they installed a brace between the front shock towers, over the engine.

The convertible mod was $18K. A considerable sum but worth it in my opinion.

We all know it does not make business sense, but I think FCA can price it at whatever they want, and it will sell (You know what I'm trying to say.) to the selected few. I can be a halo type of car the draws people in.

Toyota never made the Solara convertible. They sent it off to ASC (America Sunroof Company) to chop the top off. FCA can do just that without investing $$$$ into this old platform. Cost is pass on directly to the car.

Ok, FCA may have issues with the body flex and big engines. I see it to be a strong seller (for a Convertible) as a V6.

Mustang Convertible looks sexy, but I would never own one. But that topless image is in my mind.
