Due to the double-layer of vents and the emblem, its definitely a 1982 Mercury LN-7,as oppossed to the very similar Ford EXP. However, this was strictly available as a hardtop, so its categorization as a convertible needs to be changed

It's a custom-made convertible.

with a lighter screen, I see that it is.But why? Who would bother customizing THIS?These cars weren't even very good when they were new...

That's wild. I wonder if it's a prototype or a conversion done by an outside company, like ASC or similar.

These type of conversions were pretty popular in the early 80s. The auto industry basically stopped selling new convertibles in the mid 70s, but that didn't stop the demand for them, especially in the "Sun" states like California and Florida. Small sporty coupes were popular then, and were the most likely candidates. Companies like ASC, converted Celicas (Sunchaser), Corolla SR-5s, Datsun 200SX and 280ZXs, Subaru hardtops, Mazda RX7 and 626s, Preludes, Camaros, Firebirds, and Mustangs. These conversions were one of the reasons that Chrysler brought back a convertible in 1982, and for Toyota to officially sell a Celica convertible by 1984.

In the last season of CHiPs, one of the shows featured an EXP convertible, so it is believable that this would exist.

Ontario-based coachbuilder AHA Mfg. Co. Ltd. built 28 units of these in Ford's St Thomas factory.
