Just ordered a ConvD from Beck. Hardtop only, soft top delete. No one makes soft top hardware for a ConvD. On previous Beck ConvD Carey paid $15k for convertible top hardware from a real ConvD. Hard top is about $2.5k
Car will be Suby with Suby 5-speed.
I completely plagarized my spyder. I will do the same with my ConvD. I will copy John Oates' Emory 356 as close as possible. Wait time is 30 months. So I still have 2-3 more years to enjoy my spyder. If my back holds out I may keep it.
