Default Retrobuilt Convertible GT500CS Conversion

Read it here: Retrobuilt Convertible GT500 Conversion

Retrobuilt's Mustang's are a love it or hate it affair. Still, they've got a new one out specifically for the convertible owners who want their Mustang to look a bit more classic.

You can jump to the gallery here, if you just want to see waht it looks like. If you're curious about how their other cars look, Young-Gun actually posted them in a relevant thread here.

Personally, I like the hard top conversions. The convertible? Eh, not so much. What do you think?

While it's a cool idea, there's just something that doesn't look right

Their convertibles are a great effort, but something just doesn't look right.

Their hard tops are spot on. Just the right mix of modern and retro.

They have one or two more models, but Retrobuilt doesn't have a large images of them on their website.

Looks like the good Dr. Frankenstein is now working on Mustangs.

if they brought the bottom of the rear up a couple inches "so that it was thinner looking in the rear) and widened the rear wheel well a bit it would look great! still looks good though

When I lived in Springfield Mo. I would see his red fastback at least once every couple of weeks driving around when the weather was nice. That thing was a work of art and pure beauty.
