Dodge Coronet, Custom Royal & Lancer, 1955
Convertible Top and Convertible Top Parts

DO IT YOURSELF INSTALLATION:
This classic will reward owner installation of the new top !

Our 50 page two part top installation manual and tutorial
covers, in detail and well illustrated, all of the steps
in the installation of this classic two part convertible top.

Required skills are: patience, handling an air driven staple gun
or our heavy duty electric stapler, and the careful positioning
of top fabric to frame components and attaching with contact cement.
(We will credit prior purchase of the manual toward subsequent
purchase of a top installation package special.)

The package specials include all parts normally needed for a complete installation.
An electric stapler can be ordered separately. The stainless steel staples
included in our staples and glue kit will fit most standard air staplers.
(We would subsitute the electric gun staples if that is ordered.)

Can I install this top myself?

Important Information
Original Factory Color(s): Black, Tan and Light Neutral

Fabrics:
The original topping fabric was pinpoint vinyl. We offer these tops; we also offer tops made of Haartz Stayfast canvas. You can read full information on topping fabrics at the "Help" link at the top of this page.

Installation:
This is a classic two part top: the main top and the rear window sections are integrated during the installation process.

Installation involves stapling (staples must be stainless steel) and gluing. There is no sewing. If you are confident using an air driven staple gun then you are a good candidate for do-it-yourself installation. You can read a summary of our 'two part top' manual via the blue link at the bottom of this page.

Tack Strips:
Tacking strips are embedded in the header and rear top frame bows. They receive the staples. We offer replacement strips. (If your lower--below the back window--tacking belts need replacement please inquire.)

Pads:
Pads are installed under the top. They 'build out' the top along the sides.

Package Specials:
Our packages are designed to provide everything you will need for a full restoration job.

Hydraulics:

We now stock hydraulic cylinders, motor-pumps, and hoses for your convertible tops. All are made to OEM specifications. Each can be ordered separately; however, when ordering hydraulic cylinders we recommend replacing both. The chances are that both hydraulic cylinders were manufactured at the same time: if one is on its way out the other may follow. If the top is raised and one hydraulic cylinder is working harder than the other the result over time can lead to a slightly bent convertible top frame. The replacement of both hydraulic cylinders will ensure that the top raises and lowers symmetrically.

Systems for this car take Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) and have a 5 year warranty when used with this fluid. Brake fluid should not be used as it voids the warranty. We also offer an installation manual when ordered.

The 12 volt motor-pumps include a mounting bracket with rubber grommets to reduce vibration.

We also offer a rebuilding service for motor-pumps. Not all are repairable, but it is less expensive to have one rebuilt than to buy a new one. The motor-pump would need to be sent to us for evaluation. Hoses come with all new fittings and are made specifically to fit your car.

Do-it-yourselfers:   Read a summary of convertible top installation.


We a now pleased to offer hydraulic cylinders, hydraulic motor pumps, and hydraulic hose sets for many different convertibles, they will be listed on your cars page if available. Also, checkout our newly added roof rail weatherstripping seals, front header weatherstripping seals, door weatherstripping seals, trunk weatherstripping seals. Look for extra savings on weatherstripping seals kits.

We are continuing to grow our convertible related products: These include convertible top latches, tonneau covers, relays, switches, rear tacking rails (trimsticks), seat covers, car covers, and carpeting.
