Preview our Convertible Top Installation Guide
We are pleased to offer replacement tops made from original patterns. Our factory has been collecting dealer original tops since the mid thirties. These tops are not "copies of copies."
Original convertible top fabric in these convertibles was pinpoint grain vinyl. We offer these tops with the zippered rear plastic or glass window. For those who want to use the Haartz Stayfast canvas, we offer this choice too. Fabrics are described at the "Help" link at the top of this page.
You can read how these classic tops install via the blue link at the bottom of this page. The full, detailed manual is included with our top packages or you may purchase it separately (see "accessories.") Installation requires no sewing; only stapling (or tacking) and contact cement work. If you feel confident using a compressor driven staple gun, please read the material at the blue link to consider self-installation.
Main Top and Rear Curtain:
The two parts of the top (which integrate during installation) are available separately. Please contact our support email address if you wish to purchase only one part of the top.
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.
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. To restore the rear base line tack strips please send a request for information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Top pads can last through two tops.
Top storage boots made with modern leather grained boot vinyls are available and listed under "accessories." To select a boot fabric please jot down your choice and specify it in the checkout message box.
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 (Chrysler 300 & Newport ) fit cars for years: 1965 and 1966.
