Important Information
Original Patterns:
Our convertible tops for these cars are made from original dealer patterns. They are not "copies of copies." We offer the replacement tops in original pinpoint vinyl and also Stayfast canvas fabrics.

Fabrics:
The original pinpoint vinyl is a classic topping. Its texture consists of tiny spheres or "pinpoints." Stayfast canvas has an elegant canvas outer layer and a butyl rubber central core. You can read more about the fabrics via the "Help" link at the top of this page.

Installation:
This is a classic two part top. You can read a thorough summary of the construction and installation of two parts top via the blue link at the bottom of this page. Installation requires stapling or tacking and the use of contact cement. There is no sewing required.

An illustrated, step by step installation manual
for these 64-65 GM convertible tops is included with our top packages.
This is an 8 1/2 x 11, well illustrated guide
to these particular tops.
If you order a package special, it will be included.

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 steel folding frame. New cables are recommended with each new top.

Top pads:
Top padding "builds out" the top. Pads can last through two tops. Pads should be replaced if of suspect condition.

Tack Strips:
Tacking strips are embedded in the front and rear top frame bows. They receive the staples that hold the top to these bows. Tack strips should last for about two tops.

Boots:
Boots are available in GM Madrid leather grained vinyl. Boots are listed under "Accessories." Please view the boot swatches via the link shown at each listed boot, and jot down your color choice. Order as many of your original boot clips as needed.

Hydraulic System Parts:
We 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 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 will ensure that the top raises and lowers symmetrically.

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

Motor Rebuild Service: We can return your existing motor to near new performance with a complete refurbishment. Ship us your motor (please wrap very thoroughly as leakage can lead to post office seizing package.) We will rebuild your motor and return generally within a week of its receipt. You may ship to us with a money order for $150 which covers refurbishment and shipping back to you.



Parts in this category (Buick Special) fit cars for years: 1964 and 1965.

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.
