There actually two MGB roadster fastback conversions. The first was
produced by Bill Buckle Motors of Sydney and involved removal of the boot
lid, extensive metal work and was a permanent conversion. The second was
an elaborate hardtop produced by J & S, makers of many sports car hardtops,
which involved removing the boot lid and the hardtop went all the way to
the back end of the luggage area.
