IMHO one of the first mods one should get is a SmartTop. This allows one to easily open and close the top. I rarely if ever leave the top down when I am not in the car, as it only takes three clicks of my key and 20 seconds to open it up again. I can also close the top while driving if I slow down to 35 miles per hour.
I have had my car for three years, and have never not been able to raise the roof. I have also had a lock cylinder seal fail, but that merely created an oil leak, and did not impact my ability to operate the roof. I fixed it myself for less than $40.
This is not something you should worry too much about. I would focus on service history and whether I wanted a 350 or a '55.
