America has largely fallen out of love with convertibles. During the bodystyle’s heyday, nearly any vehicle offered a drop-top variant and sales boomed for the wind-in-your-hair experience.
Now, decades later, convertibles are becoming more of a scarcity for collectors. To underscore that point, Road & Track highlighted ten of the rarest muscle car convertibles to showcase the dwindled love affair with the drop-top bodystyle.
Leading the charge is the 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 convertible. Why is it so rare? There’s only one of them.
The 1968 Camaro Z/28 convertible was built especially for the head of Chevrolet at the time, effectively making it nearly impossible to get your hands on it. But, as R&T states, a few million dollars could likely secure it one day.
As for the rest of the list, Pontiac, Oldsmobile and Buick are all present and accounted for, including a 1967 C2 Corvette 427 “Tri-Power” convertible, 1969 Hurst Oldsmobile, 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge and 1970 Buick GSX Stage 1.
