57 4-door hardtop conversion to 4-door convertible

9 months ago

I have a „rough“ 57 4-door hardtop. My dream is to convert it to a 4-door convertible. Besides all of the obvious hurdles of top fabrication, etc., does anyone know if this has been done before, and if so, can you suggest website information? Thanks, Ron

Ron, The 1957 4 door into a 1957 2 door convertible conversions have been finished many times. To keep your four doors and make it a convertible use the convertible X frame and brace the center of the car between the front and rear door, on both side.

Look at a few of the Factory produced 4 door convertibles, for example, the Lincoln which President Kennedy was shot in.
