I don't remember the Cimmeron ever having the Z-24 rear bumper and side pods either...
Seems to me to be one of the nicer Chevy 'Vert / Cimirron conversions out there - Gold Wheels not withstanding....LoL
I just don't understand the need to faux the sudo 2 door Caddy bodystyle that simply doesn't exhist. Go ahead have a lovely time creating these Gems and admit what you have. Enjoy it! Show it off. But to try and pass this off as a genuine product is just so wrong. Just for openers to use the Caddy title can be disasterious!! Should a State Trooper catch you at a Checkpoint Chicky - and there you sit in a 2 Door Convertible presenting a Registration to a 4 Door Sedan??? I don't think it is going to be a good day.
One day I'd enjoy seeing that true origional Caddy 4 door wrapped with a Soft Top.
I'm sure some wag out there has put in the time and money to create one with everything else we've witnessed so far.
Well I'll be damn somebody actually went and done it. $16,000 though
You'd think for $16 LARGE they would have least attempted to clean up the engine compartment...

Idk except the wheels are well ugly,trim screams cavalier and yeah the rear bumper and other small items.Def overpriced as people are dreaming a J will bring that price.I think I would strip the silly stuff and take it back to original.
I agree .....WAY over priced, needs a wheel change, reinstall the shifter handle correctly since backwards is not becoming, would be better looking as a Z24 clone if not a real one rather than a Caddy, and with a sketchy title.....smells like sour milk to me, something that would leave a bad taste in a new owners mouth.
I bet the car was a vin swap. I bet you it was a cavalier or other 2 door vert and someone had a wrecked caddy and swapped everything to the cavalier and sold it with the 4 door vin and title on it. I wouldn't even bother looking at it. It is too perfect to be a 4 door to convertible 2 door to be done at a shop and why someone would pay to have it done when you could buy a cavalier convertible and swap everything over is just stupid.
On the inside my car looks like a fighter jet.
I ask rhetorically, "What in hell is this guy smoking that he thinks he can get 16K for that ersatz Caddy?" It's obviously a Cavalier! Did GM make any 2 door Cimmaron's and if so, did American Sun Roof really convert any of them to convertibles?
This has all of the looks and feel of a P.T. Barnum deal, you know, "There's a sucker born every minute". What idiot would pay 16K for that? Hell, I would venture to say that many of us who own Cavalier Convertibles that ours are cleaner and better kept than this car.
Well, I'm off today to go to a car show very close to Woodward Avenue. I've got my parking pass for Friday and Saturday and I along with fellow J-Body guy Tom Stroup will be cruising Woodward Avenue this weekend. Since I've gotten the power seats installed, I will ride in comfort for the entire route from just north of Detroit to Pontiac and back! I wish you fellow J-Body guys could come and see the many cars. It's a great time! We're supposed to have great weather for the weekend, so I'll probably get some sun, 'cause I'm cruisin' with the top down!
Seen a cimarron convertible on Cheaters today. While eating Lupper(lunch-supper) wife and I watched this show called cheaters and in the parking lot of one guy they were following there was a Cavalier convertible that had Cimarron front and rear fascia. Video was shot in the grainy nightvision so I couldn't tell if it was this same one though but it did have a black convertible top. lol the things you see on tv
