Original Patterns: Our Chevrolet Malibu and Chevelle convertible tops are made from original dealer patterns. These two Chevrolets take the same top. We offer the replacement tops in original pinpoint vinyl fabric.
Installation: This is a classic two part top. You can read a thorough summary of the construction and installation of this top via the link at the bottom of this page. If you are confident renting and using an air driven staple gun then you are a good candidate for do-it-yourself installation. The full illustrated, step by step, manual for installing these 1968-72 Chevrolet tops is available. It is included in our package specials.
The Two Top Sections Available Separately: If you wish to replace only the window section, or only the main top, the two parts are separately available. For a complete top without any of the restoration parts in our packages please order both the main top and the rear window section.
Hold Down Cables: A pair of cables, one on each side, thread through pocketed hems on the main top sides. The ends of the cables hold the top to the frame. New cables are recommended with each new top. (You can read about cables in the installation summary link.)
Tacking strips: Much of the installation involves tacking or stapling (there is no sewing involved.) Tacking into the bow over the windshield (header bow) and into the bow over the rear window (rear top bow) is done into special strips embedded in these frame bows. We offer new tack strips for the front and rear top bows.
Top pads: Top padding "builds out" the top. Pads can last through two tops but should be replaced if of suspect condition.
Top Boots: You have the option of using a top storage boot. Our boot fits, as original. If any of the boot clips need replacement you must order new clips (see "Accessories.")
We have listed the most popular tops and package configurations. If you wish us to customize a top, or a package please contact us at email@example.com Thank you.
