David it is true that the tonneau limits the use of the car to only two persons when in place.
What brought about the Sports Roadster in 1962 was an outcry from many T-Bird owners for a sporty two place roadster as a remembrance to the baby birds from 55-57. Lee Iaccoca got tired of hearing it and directed his staff to come up with something to quiet folks. While the Sports Roadsters could hardly be seen as anything near the baby birds it seemed to do the trick. As only 1427 1962s and 455 1963s were built it would hardly appear that the "many" were hardly "many". Should you ever get over to Mississippi It would be my honor to take you for a ride in my car and a tour of my collection.
