Merlin Automotive Developments offered convertible conversions of the Range Rover Classic in
the late part of the 80's and the beginning of the 90's. As you can see from license plates on some
of the pictures, Merlin's origin looks to be from the SVC Ltd or Specialist Vehicle Conversions Ltd.
SVC Ltd offered their convertible conversions in the Mid-80's.
The versatility of Merlin is remarkable. When summer is passed and autumn gives way to winter,
the transition from cabriolet to traditio¬nal Range Rover can be achieved without fuss, for the roof

the elements out.
