looks like a fairly decent attempt at a cabriolet creation rather than the real thing, the rear door if I recall correctly should swing open, I quite like it though

Definitely not chopped

It had a bulkhead fitted to get around the Irish road tax rules, it's registered as a commercial vehicle 

I have a copy of the data card

So the roof of the cab is fabric? Its not clear from the photographs, I think I'd want it as close to original as possible, I do like it thoughblush

The front is professionally made out of aluminium and clad in vynil , it's a very neat job, if you wanted to revert it back to a cabrio it would be a straight forward job to do

Re: Cabriolet or a chopped swb

the fabric hood and its fasteners are not original and the the front cab has been partitioned-off, as mentioned above, but otherwise, look all good.

I've just come back from a week in the sun, that's my excuse, but overall forum participation seems down
