No, but once converted, it won't be worth as much as the value of the coupe. This is becasue of the additional bracing added to the convertible and the chassis type will always have it as a coupe. Not recommended at all.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

Theres the brace for the rear floor pan,the folding top ,the new springs because the car will be riding too high, the depreciaton on your coupe....around $10,000 all up.try and find a convert resto project and use your coupe as parts car.

Don't do it - you'll kill the car you currently have.

I'll do it for ya. $1,000.00. We'll take the whole roof off. We'll take off the doors at no extra charge. No warranties. Here is a happy customer after we converted his pickup.
