How could I forget?!

The E7 loves continue with a lapse in my memory. How could one forget the wicked Griffith built E7 Corolla convertible!

What most people don’t know is that almost all convertibles made start their lives out as hardtops. Toyota and most other manufacturers do not built the convertibles in house but rather send them to ‘coach’ builders. The hardtop car shows up at companies such as American Sunroof Corperation, Griffith, etc, and they just hack the roof off, add some chassis braces and start bolting and gluing shit together. It’s standard practice! Want to see more old Japanese coach built convertibles? Check out this sweet thread at Japanese Nostalgic Cars!
