Looks like a photoshop as the grass where the roof should be looks "flat".

Mr Adobe Strikes Again...

Has to be.

But what the **** is for sale for €1900. Is it a joke?

It's a pretty big blag if he's claiming it's Heuliez and it isn't. It's not completely unlikely that Heuliez did experiment with the concept but surely if this was one of the prototypes it would be worth more than €1900 and also he'd post some more photos - I'd like to see how they've dealt with the back end. Looks pretty messy! ( is this located anywhere near the Heuliez factory by the way?)
There's a phone number there, anyone who can speaky le Frenchy perhaps call and get the story - Phil? :D

Price non negociable.
Thats nice then, especially for a photoshop picture!

Why are the guys in it faces fuzzed out?
And moreover, why is the passenger flicking a V?!

Utter bollocks.
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Not the only people discussing it... not the only photo of a "BX cabriolet".

Occasionally constrained by geography. When not driving, can rely on ferry, two wheels and musclepower when a couple of miles as the crow flies would become a round-road-trip ten times the distance.

I've seen pictures of the red one before.
Still think the 16S convertable is a photochop special.

It's not a photoshop job... but it is a wind-up.

The roof of a valver being broken for spares has been can-opened with an angle grinder.

You may not be surprised that the "mad Frenchman" is behind this.

Is the 'Mad Frenchman' the bloke who lifted a BX using a drill on the pump? :D

Ohhhh yessss.

And gassed spheres with air. And - this must surely make him immortal - repaired his bottom engine mount with his wifes shoe.

Top man, true BX maniac, repairs HP pumps at the side of the road for fun.
