Holy Moly that's one huge convertible!
Looks like it's about twice as long as my Z3!
Certainly destined for the parade circuit... I can just see the prom queen waving from the back seat.

if there's one thing that platoform doesn't look good in, it is convertible form

America needs more four seat convertibles in the tradition of the greats of the '50s and '60s. Right now, I think the Sebring is really the only one that pulls it off, and quite nicely. The Marauder's looks just don't do it for me, but I'm glad they're making an attempt at more soulful and interesting body styles. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I'll agree a convertible would be cool, as would a 2-door coupe. But why not a wagon as well to capitalise on the recent wagon revival?
Hmmm... surely Ford Australia can do a Falcon coupe and convertible as well, plus a "woodie" wagon and a sedan delivery (panel van) too?

The Marauder looks good as a sedan only IMO. Restyle it and we can talk, but in its current form, sorry, http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

The Marauder convertible would make a very hip looking funeral car.

Also, who the hell would park an open convertible inside a steel mill?

I like it in convertible form. It's much like every other full size American convertible used to be. Traditional but not retro.
Big? It's smaller than my Caddy...

That just doesn't look right - actually, it looks like something Mike Brady would drive.
L/M should have built a convertible version of the Mark VIII....
