I want to say that the vert with hard top on is the aerodynamically

You sure? See this very well executed 1982 vert.
It really doesn't look a pantload different than my '68 vert.
IMHO coupes kill the "natural lines" of the car at it's best profile.

The weakest part of these thing is the doors. A direct hard "T-bone" hit to the drivers side door is likely to be the greatest risk to your life. My 68 has been ass-ended THREE times in the 40 years...

Yes. I'd be willing to leave a few high RPM HP on the table to keep it looking "correct".
