Default Berlinetta as a daily

Hi everyone

Iím considering a Berlinetta as a daily driver, and have a few questions...

Does anyone know if hardtops are available if I happen to end up with a car without one?

How do Berlinettas handle, as IIRC they have cortina suspension and the void bushes on these rear axles were notorious for being some what troublesome?

Are there any chassis points that could be used for mounting rear seat belts or a lap belt for a child seat?

Any info very gratefully received! Thanks, Tim

Hi Tim
Yes, A hardtop is available for the Berli. Contact the Marlin Owners Club, a friendly group with lots of know how. Then join it if you get a Berli. Good luck.
