If you've ever wanted to combine the practicality of a family sedan with the enjoyment of a convertible, well, here's your chance: Today's Autotrader Find is a 2013 Chrysler 300C that's been converted, rather professionally, into a full convertible.

Offered by Cooper Motor Company in rural Clinton, South Carolina, this 300C doesn't appear to have any major modifications aside from the convertible conversion. There aren't big chrome rims, there are no strange interior choices, and the colors remain a fairly standard Chrysler red over a beige leather interior. Simply put, this thing seems factory.

But, of course, we know it isn't. According to the listing, this 300C was transformed into a convertible by a Florida company called Coach Builders, which charged $25,000 for the job -- in addition to the price of a "loaded" 2013 300C, which this one certainly is. That means the original cost for this car, including the convertible conversion, likely approached $70,000. It's now traveled 38,000 miles, and the asking price is $39,995.

So is it worth it? Well, there are currently 265 different 2013 Chrysler 300C models on Autotrader, with an average asking price of $19,300 -- meaning this one is comes at a premium of roughly $20,000. That's a lot of extra money just to be able to put the top down -- but if you want a 4-door family sedan with a convertible top, it's hard to imagine any alternatives.
