Graber coupes are splendid but unfortunately no news about, only some photos in books and on interneet.
I think a cabriolet would be technically easier to reproduce, at the end you must cut the roof and - which is more difficult - weld the doors and strenghten the body.
Someone did this before us, so this could be a good idea, but not for me.
I have too much to do with my saloons!!
