Very nice pictures and sharp car. I regret not buying one like yours, really like them. All the Cutlass Verts were produced in the Doraville GM plant, and I was the Production Supervisor in Body Assembly at the time. So, I'm pretty sure my hands have been all over that car!

Yes, that is correct. The body was built as a regular coupe with the addition of several extra braces in house. Then the body was sent to C&C for the rear conversion, then sent back to us. Body was then processed and put back into the regular production line and went to the Paint Dept. Body was actually sent back to C&C after this for the convertible top install and and other convertible only assembly. Shipped back to us for final build.

It was a rather complicated assembly with a lot of extra man-hours involved.
