The Dodge brand of Auburn Hills’ Stellantis announced an expedited ordering process for third-party convertible modifications on the 2022 Dodge Challenger through Drop Top Customs.
Dodge dealerships began taking orders for the convertible modification on Aug. 16 that allow customers to pick up a finished vehicle from the Florida convertible coachbuilder.
“While we hit the throttle toward our new performance path, Dodge is also having fun on this victory lap by celebrating decades of muscle car power. What better way to commemorate how far we’ve come than to make it easier for Dodge Challenger customers to create a throwback convertible look,” says Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand CEO.
“We may not upfit them, but those who want a convertible Challenger can get one faster, expedited from the factory to Drop Top Customs. Owners can order third-party modifications through our Dodge dealerships, and then pick up their finished convertible at the dealer once the vehicle is complete.”
The new third-party Challenger convertible fulfillment process was announced at M1 Concourse in Pontiac during the first day of the three-day Dodge Speed Week event series, which featured announcements and reveals of current Dodge muscle products. Modifications through Drop Top Customs will be available on the 2023 Dodge Challenger when orders open for the new model year.
Dodge Challenger convertibles were offered as production vehicles for only two model years, 1970 and 1971. More than half a century later, Dodge dealers are helping customers order their dream convertibles through a simple, integrated transportation process.
Customers will work closely with Drop Top Customs and their Dodge dealership to order the vehicle to fit their specifications. Dodge dealerships will schedule unmodified customer vehicle orders to ship directly from Stellantis’ Brampton Assembly Plant in Ontario to Drop Top Customs for third-party modifications, providing a more efficient build time and allowing owners to take the keys after completion.
Drop Top Customs has 46 years of modification experience, creating convertibles, including modern-era Dodge Challenger convertibles, that feature a fully hydraulic power top with structural reinforcements that reduce body flex while retaining interior space.
Quality design, padded roof, and heated glass rear window result in high comfort and provide sound and temperature insulation. More information on Drop Top Customs is available at droptopchallenger.com.
The Drop Top Customs third-party Challenger convertible-top option will be available at a retail price of $25,999 — final pricing negotiated and confirmed with the dealer. Additional ordering information, including warranty information, is available through Drop Top Customs.
Expedited shipment option to Drop Top Customs will be available for 2022 and 2023 Dodge Challenger R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and all Challenger SRT models.
