72 convertible vs. hardtop

1544 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  MrBreez
I assume (?) the 72 convertible frame is different from the hard top frame like earlier years where the convertible frame is boxed; am I correct?

Are there other structual differences between the convertible and hard top? Any structual crossbracing, etc.?

A gentleman wrote me asking this as he's contemplating cutting the top off a hardtop and turn it into, essentially, a roadster. Don't ask me why... :confused:

I may be wrong but I would say the frame for the conv and the HT are the same other than the boxed area.
