Ford Mustang convertibles were manufactured from 1964 to 1973 and then from 1983 onward. There had been safety regulations which forced convertible cars, such as the Ford Mustang convertible, off of the market for a few years. During this period the Ford Mustang convertible disappeared !
American convertibles reappeared, in particular the Mustang convertible. The Ford Mustang convertible was significantly redesigned.
The early Mustang convertible is now a valuable collector convertible car; the classic Ford Mustang convertible is among the most sought after of all convertible cars.
Beginning in 1983 The Mustang convertible became popular again. These Mustang convertibles are actively restored and the Mustang soft top (replacement convertible top) is available from many convertible top sources.

Can I Install a Mustang Convertible Top Myself?
Every Mustang convertible top, until 2005, was a classic "two part top." The main top and the rear convertible top window section (called the "curtain") are integrated during the convertible top installation.
We have the fourth edition of the tutorial two part convertible top installation manual. It should help you decide whether you are a candidate for installing a replacement Mustang convertible top yourself. We have found that owners comfortable with renting an air driven staple gun are candidates for do-it-yourself convertible top installation. We offer the Mustang convertible top installation manuals, with Mustang convertible top details for each year Mustang. You might also wish to have our comprehensive two part convertible top installation manual, now in its fourth edition. This covers, in detail, all the steps for do-it-yourself convertible top installation including convertible top removal procedures. You may purchase the manual to review it before purchasing a convertible top package. We would then pro-rate future purchase of the convertible top when it is ordered.
2005 and Later Mustangs:
Ford abandoned the classic two part convertible top design with its 2005 Mustang convertible. We have a separate manual for this new one piece modular Mustang convertible top. Note that this top is even easier to install than the classic two part convertible top. There is stapling and rivet work required, but no cement work. Most of the fastening is done by reusing the old hardware and the work should go faster and more easily with the new Mustang convertible top design. Our own step by step convertible top manual for the 2005 and later model Ford Mustang convertibles is available. It is included with our complete do-it-yourself packages.
Mustang Convertible Top Packages:
We offer full top restoration packages for Mustang convertibles. Our top packages contain the Mustang top and required cables, top frame tack strips, top pads and other convertible top parts as listed for each Mustang convertible on its page (links shown here.)
Our Mustang top packages come with the do-it-yourself step by step top top installation manual. Owner installation of a two part convertible top is frequently done by our customers. The full two part Mustang convertible top installation manual is available at your Mustang Convertible car link (above right). Note that there is no sewing involved in installing a two part convertible top. There is stapling and there is manipulation of the top fabric which in places is applied with contact cement. Our convertible top packages include stainless steel staples and the very best grade of contact cement with brush. Please click the link to your convertible top page for more information.
Purchasing One of the Top Sections:The main top (the section of the convertible top that covers from the windshield back to the rear window, is available separately. So is the rear window section of the convertible top (called the "curtain") Either section of the convertible top can be installed with the other section of the soft top retained. More information on this is available at the "About These Tops" section at your convertible Mustang page (links to the right/above.)
We offer replacement convertible top hydraulic cylinders, convertible top motors and convertible top hydraulic hoses. We offer a convertible motor rebuild service as well. The rebuild service will provide savings over a new motor and a guaranteed functioning Mustang top motor. Please inquire on Mustang convertible top motor rebuild service at our support email address.
For those who, after reading our top installation manual summary, decide to do their own installation we have the following advice: Set aside a weekend to install your new Mustang top. Order stainless steel staples and trimmer contact cement (usually offered in our top restoration packages or under "Accessories" at the top of our home page menu.) Make certain you have the Mustang top install manual or our full two part top install manual. We have had many women, teenagers and others do wonderful first time Mustang convertible top installations. At the same time we have seen others diving in when they should have hired out the job. The best barometer has been the convertible top owner's confidence in renting an air gun and using it.
