4 Door Convertible?

I was looking through 200 series Mercedes on Ebay and came across this...

It's kind of a shame, but it's also kind of cool, I guess it's better this way than in the junkyard.
Removing the roof makes the car less structually sound unless you do a bunch of reinforcing right?

RE: 4 Door Convertible?

this is sad.... looks like a typical case of "California rebuilding". I am pretty sure the roof just got chopped off and that's it.

I happen to live 10 minutes from Mission Viejo. Will see if I can spot the car this coming weekend on PCH in Laguna Beach. If successful I'll ask the owner a few questions.
