The 2004 Holden Marilyn Concept car was first introduced to the public in May, 2004, at the Flemington Racecourse. Marilyn was a surprise attendee at the event which brought together some of the defining vehicles of Australian motor shows. Marilyn was built by the now defunct TWR Engineering in 2002 at the request of the Holden Board of Directors to investigate whether a convertible program was possible. Financial analysis confirmed that the costs associated with producing a current platform coupe convertible could not be justified.

Amongst the changes needed to successfully complete the task were changes to A-pillar assemblies, rear quarter body panels, trunk lid outer and the doors were modified to take a frameless glass system. There were reinforcements made on the underbody and mountings for a bolt-on cruciform structure to help optimise structural requirements. The fully lined and insulated black canopy was designed as a six-bow system to retain styling shape and roof operation is fully automatic with a competitive cycle time.
