Austin Cambridge
You have to come from a good family to turn a Saloon into a convertible as a benevolent hobbyist
As a body builder you have to come from a good family to turn a closed two or four-door car into a convertible, let alone a well-meaning craftsman. The Austin Cambridge Farina pictured here shows the result of such a piece of British domestic work.

Someone has made a convertible from an existing Saloon! The four doors with which the thing was delivered ex factory have been maintained, as well as the still opening windows. In order to be able to ride somewhat draft-free in the vehicle with the hood on, a nasty thin edge of the roof has been maintained. And that cannot be enough to make the carriage stiff enough. No, beams have been fitted for this in the box beams - which may also be called sills. The creation was realized in 1965. It must have been a craftsman, because all four doors opened and closed as the Austin meant in 1962 ... Hats off!
