I did exactly this to a 100LS 2-door in high-school. Instantly doubled the
value ;-) We used a jaws-of-life, though. The structure was fine. after a
summer of spirited driving, the doors still functioned properly. However, we
also did this to a friends 4-door caddy, and the doors never opened again.
They were both cheap and fun cars, though.

As for the real conversion, it was done by tresser to an UrQ in the '80's.
It had a propper folding cloth top. I think it looked terrible with the top
up, though.
