I think it is easier since the car will stay more rigid, and therefore won't need any extra strengthening. I do not know about regulation, but maybe a comvertible conversion gives more problems with the law than a GTS?

I believe you still need to strengthen the wind-shield/screen. In a coupe there is a support bar going across the top just above the door. But on GTS they don't have the bar. Also you will have to remove the frame on the windows (assuming the 456 has them).

Look in the video section with Kinnie's 456 stripped. Could give you an idea or two.

I think if you take it to a specialist coach builder, they will be able to tell you exactly what you need to know. The 456 would make a nice convertible !
