Answer

There are convertible cars dating from the 1930's.

Your question should be the other way around. Since the first cars were buggies with engines they were all open cars or "convertibles" with very few exceptions. Then in the early 1900's as the automobile began the evolve all manufacturers began the build closed cars as their main offerings but they also offered an open or convertible as well. Ford did not offer a closed car until 1920 or so.

Short answer: 1931 Long answer: Most of the first automobiles were based on horse-carriges available at the time, many having retractable roofs......ergo the first full bodied cars followed suite.Even though a steam powered car was invented in 1672 by Ferdinand Verbiest it is quite likely the inventor of the first full bodied car would get credit.The convertible was the default body style of all vehicles before 1910, when Cadillac introduced the first closed-body car. James Jones created the patent for the convertible car in 1919. Credit for the first modern hardtop convertible goes to Chrysler -- with a 1946 model. But the first hardtop retractable convertible was invented by B. B. Ellerbeck in 1931.

The cost of a new convertible is a very large range of price. The price depends on the manufacturer of the car you are looking at to have many seats in the car. A new convertible can be as low as $20,000 to over $40,000.

You didn't say which meaning you wanted to use. A convertible car is one with a removable top. We went for a ride in his new convertible. Convertible also means able to be changed into something else. That toy is convertible into a robot.
