Convertible Ford F-150

Open Air Cruising In A Convertible F-150

You can do just about anything with an F-150, which is proven by this one-off convertible ride. Originally reported on by Jalopnik, this F-150 drops the top raises some eyebrows and has created quite a few questions.

A Custom Convertible F-150

This crazy creation came from the folks at Newport Convertible Engineering (NCE), who make a living out of slicing the top off of non-convertible cars and giving them the drop top makeover. NCE took a stock 2016 EcoBoost F-150 and sliced the roof off, replacing it with a powered soft top and rigidity bar.

NCE believes they will create “2,000 – 4,000 good paying jobs” American workers with this project.
