There's no doubt that most aftermarket convertible conversions look like the hacksaw jobs they usually are. Tastefully done convertible Challengers however, look as close to factory as you can get. I've seen a few in person, and if I wasn't a "car person" I would have totally figured I could just go to the local Dodge dealership and buy one off the lot.

Of course, "converting" a car into a convertible is one of the most complicated modifications a car can undergo. You could just sawzall the roof off and call it a day. You might be a perfectionist and make your conversions look even better than the original, like a Testarossa Spyder for example. Someone has to pay for all that labor and customization, but all it really takes is money.

This super clean Hellcat Challenger conversion popped up for sale recently at a dealership in Chantilly, Virginia. After browsing Fair Oaks Chrysler's website for a couple minutes, it seems like convertible Challengers are sort of their specialty. There's a blue one in the pictures parked in the showroom next to the Hellcat and also a red R/T Scat Pack convertible listed for sale too. Yes, the prices for these muscle cars are listed: a whopping $95k for the Hellcat and $72,000 for the Scat Pack! They lay out what the conversions cost right on their ads for these two cars too. The online window sticker lists $26,000 in customization costs for the red one and $21,000 for the Hellcat. Not only do they have to cut off the roof and install the folding roof mechanism, but they added suspension braces wherever they could. Do you think that cost is worth it?

Everybody knows that the Camaro and Mustang have been available in drop-top trim since forever, so why not the Challenger? Why do we need to turn to aftermarket conversions and pay a premium if we want a little wind in our hair as we lay down some rubber? Sure, the Hellcat might spin its chassis like a corkscrew with all that horsepower and torque it's supercharged Hemi puts out, but at least the crowd at Cars and Coffee will see me better when I leave!

Would you spend $20k+ removing the roof from your Challenger?

  • I wouldn’t buy it. It looks unnatural.
