2001 Mustang. Price to change convertible top into a normal solid top? Not selling due to new rims, tires, brakes, and engine adjustments.

Here is a company that sells aftermarket hard tops (that are still removable.) You're looking at a minimum of $300 + paint up through several hundred dollars.

I don't think you can actually convert it to a hardtop because you would have to add the frame, change body panels, etc. which is very expensive.

I was just checking their site also, it said in payment info link that a $500 deposit is required for purchase with balance due in 10 days. So I'm guessing depending on the style roof and after finishes and paint that costs will be well into the thousands.

That would probably cost more than the car is worth.

Do you know how much?
My car's worth about $16,000 with all the adjustments.
(New premium rims, premium tires, premium brakes, and custom engine adjustments.)

Is that the book value, has it been appraised, or are you just estimating based on the money you've put into it?

If its clean with low mileage, book value is about $8,000, I have a 2008 Mustang v8, clean and low mileage and it's only worth about $14,000. like I said you're probably spend more than the cars actually worth. to have that done

I was thinking that yeah, the 2012 is about $18,000 there's no way a 12-year-old car as common as a mustang is $16,000. If it's some top-of-the-line limited edition model or was worked on by Count's Kustoms, maybe. But unlikely.

you're absolutely right it would have to be a Cobra convertible in mint condition.

I never heard such wish before... that will be very expensive. I guess it would have to be done in a custom car workshop, requiring to replace everything from the doors up. including a full respray and whatever. Could be 10 grand or more. But you can get a complete hardtop beginning under $2000 - well, I guess you know that.
