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.
