I saw this car online and it's the FIRST four door convertible I've ever seen I didn't know any four doors existed like this one. Never mind the wheels or colors on the car but I think a car like this has tremendous potential.

I've always looked for a four door caddy convertible that didn't have horrible pillars like the vw beetles have YUCK!:bigroll:

I am guessing that it was probably a 4 door hard top, maybe a fleetwood? With a custom convertible top??:confused:

i am going to guess an early 90's fleetwood brougham because of the front clip. although they could have taken an 80's brougham and put the 90's clip on it.

but its a brougham

That's a 90-92 Brougham, convertible conversion by Sawz-all. What an awful job they did, the front few inches of the roof is still there, as are the front part of the door frames, where they meet the A-pillar. That convertible top looks pretty bootleg too. It should be a crime what they did to that car.

Unfortunately Cadillac never made a four door convertible. The last real Caddy convertible was the 1976 Eldorado. The 84-85 Eldorados were factory sanctioned ASC conversions. A number of companies did Coupe Deville conversions, Hess & Eisenhardt comes to mind. There is a conversion based on newer Devilles, but they have that basket handle you mentioned you don't like.

If done right, that would be pretty cool

That though, is a waste

A day or two ago someone posted of a picture of a 90's Brougham convertible that looked really nice. Installing rear suicide doors would be even cooler. But yeah, that car is an automotive tragedy.

They make alot of these Cadillac convertible conversions in California and Florida. Personally, I don't think the car looks that bad. Of course, the rims don't help the car. I don't like 20s, 22s, or anything else on Caddies. As far as the conversion, it could be a little better. I really can't see the A-pillar door slabs leftover but I do see the remainder of the roof left on. I believe that the convertible top does retract further but the photographer didn't take the picture when it was fully down.

A couple of years ago, I saw a 1978 Cadillac De Ville with the convertible conversion in California. It was sharp.
