Here is my 1939 Railton Drop Head Coupe.  Railton used Hudson built engines and chassis and assembled custom-built aluminum bodies (from several different body builders) in England.  This is a one-off E.J. Newns body.  Approximately 1600 Railtons were built from 1933 to 1939 (with about a dozen more assemblied in 1946 from left-over pre-war chassis).

Here the 3 position drop head (top) is down.  This car is unique in that it is the only one I know of that the top completely disappears under a panel in the rear.
