    Important Information
    Original Factory Color(s): Black, White and Ford Blue

    Fabrics:
    The original convertible top fabric was pinpoint vinyl. We also offer the top in a more durable Haartz Stayfast canvas.

    Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl’s design is original to most American cars from the fifties to the nineties. Pinpoint refers to the little dots or pips that you see if you look closely at the vinyl surface. European cars, such as the old Beetles and others also used pinpoint vinyl as the topping fabric.

    Haartz Stayfast Canvas has a canvas outer layer and a preshrunk cotton inner layer. The two are bonded with and separated by a butyl rubber core. It is this core that makes the fabric last a very long time, with both better static and dynamic wear ratings than vinyl toppings. Haartz Stayfast is the American substitute for the German canvases used in Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, some models of Mustang and Lebaron and others. Canvas is widely regarded as "richer looking" than vinyl. It is a little harder to clean. The inside of the top is pre-shrunk cotton. The inner lining is usually black. If you do not see a canvas top listed for your car, please inquire and we will provide a quotation for it.

    Window: We offer tops with either plastic or glass rear window. Plastic is original.

    Do-It-Yourself Installation:
    This is a classic two part convertible top. You can read how these tops install via the blue link at the bottom of this page. The full manual is a 22 page 8 1/2 x 11 illustrated guide to installing classic two part convertible tops.

    If you are comfortable using an air driven staple gun and with using contact cement then you are a good DIY candidate. Approximately half of our customers for two part tops perform their own installation. The tops attach with hold down cables, staples and contact cement. There is no sewing.

    Hold Down Cables:
    A cable is threaded through the side hem of the top on each side. The cables are fastened to the top frame in the front and in the rear. We recommend changing cables with each new top.

    Tack Strips:
    Tacking strips are embedded in the header bow and the rear top bow. They receive the installation staples or tacks. Tack strips should last through at least two tops.

    Pads:
    The padding can last through a second top.

    Boots:
    If you desire a top storage boot we can supply in original Ford colors. The Sierra Ford boot vinyls are scanned at the boot fabric link. Please specify your boot color choice in the checkout message box. Please supply color and number.

    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.



    Parts in this category (Mercury Comet, Cyclone, Montego, MX) fit cars for years: 1968 and 1969.

    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.
