The Pontiac Firebird was produced between 1967 and 2002. Convertibles (soft tops) were suspended during the seventies. The Firebird name did not appear on soft top cars again until 1987. Pontiac (and Chevrolet) produced several convertible models during this period. Generally Firebird and Camaro were made similarly and took identical convertible tops.
Our Firebird soft tops are available in original and in alternative fabrics. Firebird convertible tops are listed on each model's page (links at right) but if you desire a fabric that is not listed we can supply any color and fabric for your Firebird convertible replacement top. For example, the Haartz convertible top factory is now making bright colored canvas top fabric and we can supply a replacement Firebird top in colors like bright blue, green, grape, etc.

Please select the link to your Firebird convertible at the right. But (at premium pricing) you are welcome to inquire into unusual replacement top fabrics and colors.
Many of our customers are performing excellent first time installation. We supply highly regarded literature (manuals) on convertible top installation for Firebird convertibles and for other tops. Our own "two part top" manual can be used, together with notes taken during disassembly, to guide you through installing your Firebird top. Please read the summary of how these tops are installed, here or on the page for your Firebird convertible.
Other parts may be required to install your Firebird convertible top. Hold down cables, tack strips, pads, and even tools (glue, staples, etc.) are available.
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.
