There was a prototype cougar convert, I saw a pic of it somewhere here, and it actually looked very good. It was equipped with ground effects (to hide bracing) and a 3rd brake light on the trunk lid. I believe it was like an 89-93 ish model.

You know, that prototype Cougar does look real nice. Shame it wasn't followed up on.
I can see how bracing would have to be a very high priority on a build like that. I wouldn't be surprised if thats the reason the project was dumped. Too much cost per car.

No, but they did put the landau tops on a few birds, that's probably what you saw.

Ford still makes the Mustang convertible. There are still a good number being built, the Chrysler Crossfire, Toyota Solara to name a couple.
