The Edsel is now a classic, as much a collector's item or an investment as a "driver." The distinctive Edsel lines are quite unique.
Edsel convertibles include the Citation, Pacer, Corsair and Ranger models. All Edsel convertible tops were originally pinpoint vinyl tops and had plastic rear windows. All are classic two part tops.
Two Part Tops: Can I Install Myself?
The design of the Edsel convertible top frame and the convertible top itself follow the classic "two part top" design. 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 these cars which all have a two part convertible top. Owners 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.
If you can use an air compressor driven staple gun, and are patient and methodical, you are very likely to be able to install any of these convertible tops. The convertible top packages include everything needed in most cases. (Convertible top frame seals must be ordered separately if required.)
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.
