The Chevrolet Corvair Convertible Top and Convertible Top Parts
We offer convertible tops and convertible top parts for the Chevrolet Corvair convertible produced between 1965 and 1969. GM first introduced the compact Chevrolet Corsa in 1960, and then designed a second generation of the Chevrolet Corvair, which included the Chevrolet Corsa and the sporty Chevrolet Monza. Our Chevrolet Corvair convertible top also fits the Chevrolet Corvair Corsa and the Chevrolet Corvair Monza.
Our Chevrolet Corvair convertible top is made from original dealer patterns. Our Chevy Corvair convertible tops are not "copies of copies." Our Chevrolet Corvair convertible top is a top-quality convertible top and guaranteed to fit.

Choosing Your Chevrolet Corvair Convertible Top
We offer the Chevrolet Corvair convertible top in two fabrics: Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl and Haartz Stayfast Canvas. Here's what you need to know about each material before you make your purchase:
Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl: Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl is a popular convertible top fabric. The original Chevrolet Corvair convertible top was made of Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl. In fact, this fabric is original to most American cars made before 1993. Pinpoint refers to the little dots on the vinyl surface. Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl is a two-ply composite with a PVC outer layer and a cotton inner lining. If you take care of a Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl convertible top, it can easily last 10 years.
Haartz Stayfast Canvas: If you're looking to upgrade your vinyl top, consider a convertible top made of Haartz Stayfast Canvas. This fabric is the American substitute for the German canvases used in Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, as well as some Mustang and Lebaron models. Haartz Stayfast Canvas is a three-ply composite material made of an acrylic square weave outer fabric, a butyl rubber core, and a cotton lining. The butyl rubber core promises to make Haartz Stayfast Canvas last a very long time. This canvas is a little richer looking than the vinyl. It's also a little harder to clean. Stayfast Canvas has both better static and dynamic wear ratings than vinyl tops.
Can I install the Chevrolet Corvair convertible top myself?
Yes! The Chevrolet Corvair requires a two-part convertible top, meaning there's the main top and a rear window section, called the "curtain." The two convertible top sections are integrated during the installation process.
If you can use an air-driven staple gun, and are patient and methodical, you are very likely to be able to install the Chevy Corvair convertible top. Installing your own Chevy Corvair convertible top can save you hundreds of dollars in restoration labor costs!
We offer a profusely illustrated convertible top manual, now in its fourth edition. This covers, in detail, all the steps for do-it-yourself convertible top installation. In particular, the manual applies to cars, like the Chevrolet Corvair, with a two-part convertible top. 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.)
In most cases, our convertible top packages include everything you need to install your own Chevrolet Corvair convertible top. (Convertible-top frame seals must be ordered separately if required.)
There is no sewing involved in installing a two-part convertible top, but you will have to be comfortable with a staple gun, manipulating convertible-top fabric, and applying contact cement. Our convertible-top packages include stainless-steel staples and the very best grade of contact cement with brush. To start shopping, click on a link at the right.
