I've often wondered what Fulvia would look like as a convertible if the work was carried out to a high standard. Here's the answer. I'd always imagined the windscreen might look too high but this has been cleverly disguised by painting the top of the frame black.

Very pretty.  I wonder how much extra steel and weight was needed to make it stiff again!

True. The only thing I would change if it was mine is the roll bar and stickers. Make it look a bit racy for a convertible. Wonder what it looks like with the hood up?

I like the red one without the hood, but I think the folded hood on the blue one does nothing to improve the appearance.

Just what I was thinking. Apart from that bulky hood, they look a lot better than I'd imagined. As though they were meant to be rather than a car that has obviously had its roof cut off. Having said that, a Fulvia roof is a very pretty and delicate looking thing and a large part of its looks.

The Ricambicorsa version is very attractive as with no roof line it seems to enhance the droop snoot of the front.....

A large part of its stiffness too!
