Convertible to Hardtop Conversion

Is it possible to convert a convertible 1969 SS to a hardtop or a removable hardtop?

anything is possible with enough time and money. but, just because something can be done doesn't mean it should be done.

I'm guessing you are thinking something like the Corvette lift-off hardtops?

Possible I'm sure but...........

It would be for the winter to cover the soft top.

You are not driving the car in winter, are you? You must be storing the car out side I would guess? You might be just trying to get us going here. Meaning this is just a joke?

Anythings possible it depends on how deep your pockets are. Here is a reverse to what you want to do read the description down towards the end. Also if you ever watched "Fantom Works" they converted a Corvette convertible to a 63 Split Window with the addition of a custom made removable hardtop.
